Auditions for A Christmas Carol
Children and adults of the Lockyer Valley are encouraged to attend auditions for our next production, Charles Dickens' A Christmas Carol.

Major and minor speaking roles available for actors of all ages, as well as chorus (non-speaking) parts. We are also seeking volunteers for backstage, costuming, and front of house.

No preparation for the audition is necessary. You will be invited to 'cold read' for your preferred part on the day.

Auditions will start promptly at 12pm on Saturday. Please arrive 10-15min early. Call backs may be required for some parts. This will take place on Sunday 12pm. You will be notified on Saturday if you are required for a call back. We recommend you wear comfortable clothing, and bring a water bottle and some afternoon tea.

New and renewing members will be provided with membership forms and information at the audition. A membership fee is required to help cover insurance costs.

Rehearsals are every Sunday commencing on 30 June 1pm-4pm. Performance dates are: Fri 1 Nov, Sat 2 Nov, Sun 3 Nov (matinee), Sat 9 Nov, Sun 10 Nov (matinee). Additional rehearsals will be held in the week leading up to opening night. Please ensure you can commit to the performance dates and rehearsal schedule.
