Auditions for Miracle Productions at St. Luke’s “A Christmas Carol”

October 1 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Free
Miracle Productions at St Luke’s will return to the stage with a new production of Charles Dickens’ classic, A Christmas Carol. This dessert theatre production has been adapted expressly from the original novella by the directors Marilyn and Woody Pyeatt. Set in Altoona it will feature “street scenes” and musical interludes of Christmas carols and other seasonal favorites. Performances will be Thursday, Friday, and Saturday, December 8, 9, and 10 at 7:30 PM, and Sunday, December 11 at 2 PM. This well-known story is the tale of the ultimate miser, Ebenezer Scrooge, and also features Bob Cratchit, The Ghosts of Christmas Past, Present, and Future, and, of course, Tiny Tim. The production is being staged as if it were done here in Altoona, using local performers, under the direction of and with narration by the author, Charles Dickens, during one of his visits to America.
Auditions will be held in the auditorium at St. Luke’s on Saturday and Sunday, October 1 and 2, at 2 PM and Tuesday, October 4 at 6:30 PM. St. Luke’s is located at the intersection of 8th Avenue and 13th Street in Altoona (806 13th St, Altoona, PA 16602); please use the 8th Avenue Parish Hall entrance for the auditions. This family-friendly show has dozens of parts large and small for all ages, and family participation is encouraged. There are also plenty of opportunities for non-speaking performers appearing as tradespeople, party-goers, street vendors, shopkeepers, carolers, bell ringers, jugglers, and other street performers. The roles of Scrooge and Dickens are already cast.
Tickets are $15 per adult and $8 for children 12 and under; a donation of non-perishable food items or money for St. Luke’s Food Pantry is also encouraged. Admission includes the show, plus a dessert and beverage to be served during intermission. Those interested in helping out with this production in any way should attend auditions or email miracleproductions@stlukesaltoona.org.
