Auditions in Middletown New Jersey for Community Theater Production of “A Christmas Carol”


Auditions for A Christmas Carol

Location: Middletown, NJ

Type: Theater


Please prepare one 60-90 second monologue, comedic or dramatic.
The language of A Christmas Carol falls in between classical and contemporary. We suggest auditioning with a “semi-classical” piece, something ranging between late 1700’s to early 1900’s. But for those more comfortable with a modern piece, please feel free to perform a contemporary monologue.

We also encourage preparing 1-2 stanzas from either Christmas song listed below. Be prepared to sing acapella (no sheet music necessary) within whatever key you see fit.

Christmas Songs: Silent Night OR O Holy Night
