Auditions: NOW OPEN
Auditions for this production are now open to Peter Moyes Anglican Community School students in Years 6-11. Auditions will take place Term 3, Week 4 Wednesday 16 August OR Tuesday 22 August from 3.15-4.30pm.
Audition information can be found in the yellow button to the left.
Email email@example.com to secure your audition spot. This needs to be done promptly, to ensure you get a timeslot. Wednesday16 August will be filled first followed by Tuesday 22 August.
In preparation for the audition, the students will be required to do the following:
Download the script excerpts and practice all characters. Students will be asked to read a variety of characters from each excerpt.
There is no need to memorise the lines as students will be able to have a script with them.
Students may wish to practice with a partner or in a group, but they will also be required to read with other members of the audition group.
If you are required for a call back, they will take place Wednesday 23 August from 3.15-4.00pm – Students will be required to stay until 4.00pm if you get a call back.
Please note- Students won’t be auditioning for a particular role so the script excerpt doesn’t need to reflect a character they want to receive.
Rehearsals will commence in Term 3, Week 6.
Students who gain a part in the production will need to be available Tuesday afternoons from 3.15-6.00pm in both Term 3 and Term 4 and Wednesday 3.15-5.00pm in Term 3. The production will be held in November 2023 in the Black Box Theatre.

Here’s a modern twist on the Dickens classic... complete with a female lead!
Eleanor Scrooge, a greedy old spinster, spends her days barking orders at her gift shop employees. Though the mall will be closed, she still wants them to work on Christmas Day! Then she’s visited by the ghost of her old boss, Mr. Marley, and a parade of zany spirits who materialize from cheesy collectible figurines.
First there’s the Spirit of the Past, who loves the 1950s and takes Eleanor dancing at a bygone party. Then there’s the Spirit of Present, who takes Eleanor to the Hatchett family Christmas dinner, where Eleanor feels like she’s watching a sitcom with a nice message of forgiveness.
Finally, the Spirit of Future, who takes Eleanor to her own funeral, completes her change of heart. She even forgives Tiny Tim’s fake limp!
With great humor, contemporary references, and crazy characters, this easy to stage show will make your audience fall in love with the classic story all over again.
