Performers Wanted for "The Trial of Ebenezer Scrooge"
Looking to cast talent for "The Trial of Ebenezer Scrooge". Please see the details below. About the project: The trial of the century!! A year after his miraculous transformation, Ebenezer Scrooge is back to his old ways. He is suing Jacob Marley, the Ghosts of Christmas Past, Present, and Future, for breaking and entering, kidnapping, slander, pain and suffering, attempted murder, and the intentional infliction of emotional distress. The Ghosts employ Solomon Rothschild, England’s most charismatic, savvy, and clever barrister. Scrooge, that old penny-pincher, represents himself. What could go wrong? Additional info: - Audition Requirements: Cold readings from the script, and British accents will be used for this production (so please come prepared to demonstrate your best British accent-it does not need to be perfect-just need to see what you can do) - The show will be presented on December 2-4, 9-11, Fridays and Saturdays at 8:00 pm and Sundays at 2:00 pm. For being considered, please apply.
