A Musical Christmas Carol 2017!

 

Hi La-De-Da Family!

 

We are thrilled to continue the tradition that is A Musical Christmas Carol by Nick Turner & Troy Schuh! We know the heart and soul that has gone into this show for many years and we are so honored to get to be a part of the legacy as we move into La-De-Da’s future.

That being said we will do everything we can to maintain the spirit of A Musical Christmas Carol, however, due to some policy changes at the Lincoln Center a few changes need to be made.

The Lincoln Center has created a cast capacity of 50 people and we will be forced to limit the cast size this year. (Those of you who were a part of last year 100-person cast know that this is a big change for us). But we know that this rule is for our safety and so we will move forward with 50 as our cast capacity, splitting half adult and half student cast.

STUDENT ENSEMBLE CLASSES GO LIVE FOR REGISTRATIONS ON MONDAY, SEPTEMBER, 18th at 6pm!

We will have a student cast of 25 and 10 students in a production crew. The students who would like to participate in A Musical Christmas Carol should enroll in one of the two CC classes; Performance Cast Class or Production Crew Class.

A Musical Christmas Carol: Performance Cast

LIMITED TO 25 STUDENTS - Grades K-12

Everyone in this session will be in A Musical Christmas Carol as the student ensemble at the Lincoln Center's Magnolia Theatre December 7th-10th. This is great exposure for our students as they perform  in a professional theatre with adult actors and their peers. They learn acting, singing, dancing, backstage etiquette, ensemble ethic in a professional theatre environment, and much much more. We rehearse 2 times per week learning the original songs and dances. Some students are given speaking roles as spirits and Cratchit Children. We can take children of all ages, grades K-12.

***The auditions for the Student Ensemble will happen on the first night of the Performance Cast Class on October 30th. We will email audition instructions closer to the class starting date.***

A Musical Christmas Carol: Production Crew

Everyone in this session is instrumental in building the show A Musical Christmas Carol as the student technical crew at the Lincoln Center's Magnolia Theatre December 7th-10th. This is great exposure and education for our students as they produce a show in a professional theatre with adult actors, professional Lincoln Center staff as well as their peers. They learn what it takes to produce and run a full-length musical in a fully equipped theatre as well as backstage etiquette, ensemble ethic, and much much more. We meet 2 times per week preparing for all the technical aspects of the show. Students build props, learn staging transitions, costuming, hair & makeup, sound and lighting design, stage management and running crew.

Adult Roles and Ensemble

Auditions Sign-Ups will go live Monday, September 18th at 6pm

We will have an adult cast of 25 for ensemble and speaking roles. Auditions for all adults who wish to be in A Musical Christmas Carol on October 28th. Even if you’ve been a part of the cast in the past we would like everyone to come out to the audition simply so we can get to know you and your past involvement. We will aim to honor the “right of refusal” so if you’ve had a past role and would like to continue in that role we want to honor your commitment to the show but we still would like you to audition for us. We ask that you come prepared with a 16-32 bars of a song and 1 minute monologue, you may use material from the show.
