Brundage Park Playhouse will hold auditions for its upcoming production of “Mrs. Cratchit’s Wild Christmas Party Binge,” on Oct. 9 and Oct. 10.
The auditions will take place from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. at the Playhouse in Randolph.
Those who audition need to be prepared to do a reading and should prepare 16 measures of a Christmas song in accapella. All parts are open, except for Scrooge and Mrs. Cratchit.
Performance Dates are Dec. 1 and Dec. 8 at 8 p.m. and December 2, 3, 9 and 10 at 2 p.m.
This is not your usual adaptation of the well-known story
about Ebenezer Scrooge’s Christmas transformation. It is a
musical parody with a very different Mrs. Cratchit than the
long-suffering, goody-goody wife in the original story. Throw in a
ghost who can’t seem to get Scrooge to the right places in neither
the past, present nor future, 21 Cratchit children, and two or three
other characters not in the original story, and you have a new
definition of “Binge”-watching.
