Would you like to get involved in a play but just don’t know if you can memorize all those lines? Never fear, your opportunity is here! For the 2015 Christmas production of “Miracle on 34th Street,” the show’s director Lynn Gunter would love to fill the stage with background actors to create the hustle and bustle of New York City during the holidays. Gunter will be searching for experienced and unexperienced actors of all shapes, sizes, and ethnicities to fill the roles required. The play’s opening scene is set in the streets of New York as the city is getting ready for the Macy’s Thanksgiving Parade to begin and continues through to Christmas Day. The director wants to encourage singers, gymnasts, and anyone with special skills like dancing, juggling, and a flair for comedy to help fill the stage with carolers, parade goers, balloon handlers, shoppers, elves, and colorful characters of the city.
During the audition process, everyone will begin with a few theatre games and a little group sing-a-long of familiar Christmas carols to help show off their skills in a relaxed, fun atmosphere. Gunter will be looking to cast smaller walk-on speaking parts during that time before moving on readings for the major roles. Roles are available for anyone age 6 to 106.
Do something different this holiday season by auditioning for “Miracle on 34th Street.”
