Staged Reading – A Christmas Carol

Be part of our staged reading of A Christmas Carol – adapted and directed by Matthew Garlin, based on the book by Charles Dickens.

This perennial favorite will be presented as a staged reading due to the current restrictions in place regarding gatherings. Our preference is of course to be able to come together as a cast with a live audience – but our goal now is to keep our members, patrons, and performers safe.

If you are interested in being part of this performance – please visit the Auditions page for details.

Performances are slated to take place the weekend December 18-20 pending cast availability.

Immediate Casting Needed for Nevermore

Due to vocal health one of our current actors is unfortunately unable to continue. Therefore we are immediately casting an actor/actress to join the TCS production currently in rehearsal – the New England Premiere of Nevermore: The Imaginary Life and Mysterious Death of Edgar Allan Poe by Jonathan Christenson.

Audition Details:
Sunday, September 15
Open Call – 6:00PM to 8:00PM
American Legion, 44 Taylor Street, Saugus
We will audition people in the order they arrive.

Role:
Player 1 is the narrator of the piece with additional company responsibilities. This is a large role with a lot of singing and dialogue set in iambic tetrameter. The director is looking for someone with great storytelling ability and physicality who is able to sing baritone to a tenor falsetto. This production will embrace the maniacal side-show of the macabre in its loosest term. Movement experience is helpful.

Actor/Actress must be available Mon, Tue, Wed evenings 7:00PM to 10:00PM.

Show Dates:
Fri-Sun, Oct 25-27 and Nov 1-3
Halloween Night Performance at 9:00PM

Please prepare/bring the following:
* Two contrasting power-ballad music pieces (2 minutes maximum per song). Bring sheet music with you for your pieces. No a cappella please.
* One minute monologue, poem, or story. Please note that this material is specific storytelling, please select a piece with this in mind when auditioning.
* A headshot – it does not have to be professional – a current printed photo is great.
* You can pre-print the Audition Packet from here and bring it with you to the audition.
