About the Show…

Peacock Players is teaming up with local professional company Merrimack Repertory Theatre to host regional auditions for youth actors for their upcoming production of A Christmas Carol.

Merrimack Repertory Theatre invites young actors, ages 8-16, to open auditions for A Christmas Carol. Students who wish to audition will need to prepare a one-minute monologue, poem, or story, and bring a recent picture and short résumé to the audition. Students will be called in groups of 12 for a one-hour group audition. The audition is meant to be a fun, supportive, and collaborative workshop led by MRT’s Artistic Director Courtney Sale.

Children of all cultures and ethnicities are highly encouraged to audition.

Saturday, August 6 from 9:30 a.m. to 11:30 a.m.

A Christmas Carol with Merrimack Repertory Theatre will begin rehearsals on Thursday, November 3, 2022, and tech days are November 26- 29 with an adjusted schedule for young actors. The first preview performance is on November 30, and the show opens December 3 (rehearsals end). The show closes on December 24.

There are two casts of young actors, so the performances are shared between them; however, approval from your child’s school is absolutely necessary if cast. Please note MRT staff is CORI checked. This youth performance opportunity is for a structured and supervised professional experience for students.  Students will receive a small travel stipend from MRT for this opportunity. Young actors cast will participate in two educative sessions prior to the start of rehearsal in November, including a young actor orientation and a performance workshop.

All performances at MRT’s Liberty Hall at 50 East Merrimack St., Lowell, MA.
