Experience life on stage at LCT!

Anyone who ever wanted to act, from those with no experience to the most seasoned actor, is welcome on our stage. Part of what makes LCT successful is the diversity of our participants. Beginning with auditions and ending with the final curtain call, the production team and staff are there to help. Many novices worry about learning all the lines or succumbing to stage fright. Don’t let that stop you! During the weeks of rehearsals, your role and character will become second nature!

 


 An up-to-date resume or list of previous theatrical shows, headshot or photo, and a list of conflicts is requested, but not required to audition. We have a template available to download HERE and bring to auditions. You can also contact us at [email protected] to have them printed and waiting for you the night of auditions.

Scrooge in Rouge: An English Music Hall Christmas Carol

Auditions: -
Sept. 26, 6 to 10 p.m., Sept. 27, 6 to 10 p.m.

AUDITIONS - 9/26 from 6p-10p | CALLBACKS (if needed) - 9/27 from 6p-10p

CHARACTERS:

ALFRED DA CAPPO, the accompanist

CHARLIE SCHMALTZ, a character actor

LOTTIE OBBLIGATO, a singing soubrette

VESTA VIRILE, a “male impersonator”

NOTE ON CASTING:

In the original production, the role of Lottie was played by a man in drag. Every role above can  be played by actors of any gender. The whole show is a wild romp, and it would add to the anarchic fun to mix genders as a production might want. However, the roles must all be played for the reality of the character (and for the role of Lottie, the actor must be an accomplished singer).

PERFORMER DOUBLINGS:

The characters above play the following roles in the show-within-the-show:

ALFRED - Themself; the group’s accompanist and musical director, MUST be a proficient piano player who can accompany the performances.

CHARLIE - Themself, Fred, Bob Cratchit, Marley’s Ghost, the Ghost of Christmas Past, Mrs. Fezziwig, Devil, Mrs. Dilber

LOTTIE - Themself, Charity Dowager, Fan, Mr. Fezziwig, Alice, the Ghost of Christmas  Present, Mrs. Martha Cratchit, Hermione, the Ghost of Christmas Future, Mrs. Dilber, Street Boy

VESTA - Themself, Scrooge, Gladys

SETTING:

Her Majesty’s Promenade Grand Theatre, 1899

The Royal Music Hall Twenty-Member Variety Players are considered a third-rate performing company. No matter how limited these characters’ theatrical ability, it must be kept in mind that they sincerely want to put on as good a show as possible.
