Auditions slated as Prizery, HCLT bring back Scrooge / August 20, 2015
Charles Dickens’ A Christmas Carol has won hearts all over the world for countless holiday seasons, whether read fireside to the children before bed, or watched on the TV screen for Christmas movie night over a bucket of popcorn while waiting for Santa to arrive; no matter where, or when, or how it was told to us, the story has sparked magic in us all. Truly it is a timeless classic.

Halifax County Little Theatre, along with the Prizery, thought the only way to celebrate two proud anniversaries was with something wonderful and timeless, and so to begin the HCLT season “60 Years Strong,” A Christmas Carol will make its third appearance on the Prizery stage. It is sure to dazzle audiences and warm our hearts with memories of Christmas past and bright joy for Christmas present.

In December 2005, A Christmas Carol was the very first show to ever be performed on the Prizery stage and it successfully set the tone for The Prizery to become a beloved hometown spectacle, that has now stood the test of time through a decade. The show appeared again in 2011 with fully sold out crowds.

And now with 60 years under their belt, HCLT is now ready to bring it to life once again with more splendor than ever. Under the direction of Chris Jones and musical direction of Alison Streeter and Cheri Blackwell it promises to be a performance to remember!

So, warm your vocal chords and brush up on your Christmas cheer … because auditions are almost here.

An open casting call will be held Monday Aug. 24 at 7 p.m. at the Prizery.

Prepare a musical piece for vocal performance (accompaniment will be provided) and be prepared to do a read from the script.

We are looking for performers ages eight and up and there are a wide variety and number of roles to be played. Ol’ Mr. Scrooge and Tiny Tim, Jacob Marley, even all the Ghosts and Fezziwig too, and that’s not all, there’s a whole town to be filled. Come be a part of something spectacular.
