McCarter searching for 50 local actors of all ages for Dickens’ classic tale

More than a dozen sessions to be scheduled at locations in Trenton, Ewing, Hamilton, Hightstown, East Brunswick, Princeton, and more.

McCarter Theatre Center will be renewing its annual tradition in December of 2016 with a reimagined version of Charles Dickens’ A Christmas Carol. As part of this new theatrical endeavor, the production will include a Community Ensemble consisting of 50 local actors who will bring the story to life alongside a company of professional performers.

This diverse and enthusiastic group will fill the streets of London, dance with the Fezziwigs, carol at Scrooge’s doorstep, and bring Christmas cheer to every corner of the theater. McCarter is searching for a wide cross-section of the diverse and talented community that surrounds us, creating opportunities for performers of all ages, genders, physical abilities, races, and levels of experience to become a part of this Community Ensemble.

At each Casting Information Session, McCarter staff will introduce you team members, talk about the auditions, play theater games, and answer questions.

Below is a list of all currently scheduled casting sessions. Additional dates/times/locations will be announced.  Please visit our website for the most up-to-date information.
