A Chirstmas Carol

Seeking five actor-narrators who sing well. These five multi-faceted performers are the engaging narrators who tell the story of Scrooge’s long night of self-discovery…the carolers who sing the music of the season to set our time, place, and mood…and the actors who play every character Scrooge encounters along the way. With a change of a hat, or the addition of a shawl, and the tiniest alteration of accent (all actors should have facility with RP British and related dialects) these five actors will play the entire spectrum of Dickens vivid characters.

(NOTE: the role of Scrooge is CAST)

Actor 1: Male Identifying-any ethnicity (characters include Marley, Fezziwig, Ghost of Christmas Present, Ghost of Christmas Yet to Come) 45 – 60, charismatic, tall, imposing, capable of instilling ghostly dreadful fear as Marley, infectious joy as Fezziwig, and powerful authority and gravitas as the Ghost of Christmas Present -Bass/baritone

Actor 2: Female Identifying-any ethnicity (characters include Belle, Martha Cratchit, Scrooge’s Niece) 20-30 attractive and versatile ingenue with youthful charm and bracing intelligence… unflinchingly honest but never cruel with the young Scrooge -soprano/alto

Actor 3: Male Identifying-any ethnicity (characters include Bob Cratchit, Ghost of Christmas Past, Topper) 30 -45, somewhat androgynous, diminutive, empathetic and sympathetic – tenor/ high baritone

Actor 4: Male Identifying-any ethnicity (character’s include Scrooge’s nephew Fred, Young Scrooge, Young Husband, Businessman) 25 – 35, attractive young leading man, sense of humor, likable, personable, a ready and infectious laugh that is the counter to Scrooge’s scowl – tenor/ baritone

Actor 5: Female Identifying-any ethnicity (characters include Mrs. Cratchit, Mrs. Fezziwig, Charwoman) 35 -55, formidable character actress, able to embody equally the happy abandon of the joyful Mrs. Fezziwig, the cautious practicality and hard earned skepticism of Bob Cratchit’s loving wife, and the no apologies avarice of Scrooge’s charwoman who, with clear eyes and a cold heart, strips his corpse and bed to profit from his death — alto
