The Sunrise Theater is producing a live radio play version of A CHRISTMAS CAROL with performances scheduled for Saturday, November 28 and Sunday, November 29.

The theater is casting six to eight actors who will each portray several characters in true 1940s radio show style. Auditioning actors should be local community members, non-professional, men and women of all ages, and no experience is required.

Auditions will be held at the Sunrise Wednesday, September 16 from 4-6pm and Sunday, September 20 from 4-6pm. Appointments are required.

Interested actors should download an audition application HERE and email the completed app to in advance of scheduling a 10-minute audition appointment.

At the audition, actors should be prepared to perform a short (30-60 seconds) memorized monologue, sing a few bars from their favorite holiday song, and do a cold read of an excerpt from the script selected by the directors.

ACTORS' TIME COMMITMENT:  Rehearsals will be a combination of Zoom, outdoor, and in theater. They will be Saturday mornings beginning September 26, running through November 21 from 9am-noon. No rehearsal Oct 31. Tech rehearsals are the week of the show.

The Sunrise is optimistic and hoping that the theater will be permitted to reopen by Thanksgiving in time for the performance. Since the future is unpredictable, we will be prepared to pivot and use the outdoor stage for the performances.
