Haywood Arts Regional Theatre (HART) will hold auditions for its December production of “A Christmas Carol” at 1 p.m. Oct. 13 and 6:30 p.m. Oct. 14 in the Feichter Studio of the HART Theatre on 250 Pigeon Street in Waynesville. Callbacks will be held at 6:30 p.m. Oct. 15, and anyone unable to make the weekend times can also come by then.
The show features a variety of characters. This is a play with a musical score, so there will be roles for carolers in the ensemble. The production is being directed by Mark Jones, with music composed and conducted by Ann Rhymer Schwabland. It will run two weekends beginning Dec. 7 and is expected to be an annual HART event. No roles have been precast.
Though this is not a musical, actors should come prepared to sing, preferably with sheet music. An accompanist will be provided. Anyone auditioning will be given scenes to read from the script. Actors auditioning as professionals will be expected to have a prepared monologue, headshot and resume. Anyone interested in working backstage on the production is also encouraged to come by during auditions to sign up.
