Auditions for new adaptation of "Miracle on 34th Street"
Red Curtain Foundation For The Arts
About the project and the company
Red Curtain announces auditions for our original adaptation of the holiday classic, “A Miracle on 34th Street,” written and directed by Scott B. Randall. The show will run November 25-December 18, 2022, and will be performed live in person at the Red Curtain Arts Center.
Set in December 2020, when Jessie’s elderly father goes into the hospital with COVID, her theatre friends gather on a video call to cheer her and her daughter, Kara, up by doing a sort of readers theatre performance. Being performers, the story is a mix of the true story, improvised lines, and pop culture references, sure to help bring out the feelings of closeness and joy associated with the season.
As this is an original adaptation, the cast will have the opportunity to give feedback and make adjustments to the script, to create a better finished product.
This script is intended to reflect the diversity of a modern group of friends, so BIPOC and LGBTQ+ actors are encouraged to submit. All roles are open.
Location of Audition
Auditions and performances will be held at the Red Curtain Arts Center, located at 9315 State Ave #J in Marysville, WA. We're in the same shopping center as the Goodwill, but our entrance is around back, behind the beauty school.
Performances will run four weekends, Nov 25-Dec 18, 2022
Auditions are in 10-minute time slots on Tuesday and Wednesday October 4 and 5 from 6:00-9:00PM. Actors should reserve their time slot, and submit their headshot and resume to email@example.com. Please prepare a 2-minute monologue of any genre that provides an opportunity to show off voice acting and multiple characters.
