Casting Call For Christmas Studio Shows

Casting Call For Christmas Studio Shows

Casting Breakdown for Christmas Productions at the Everyman Theatre, Cheltenham

 The Ugly Duckling (Thu 30th Nov - Sat 30th Dec) Directed by Patrick Withey.

Poor little Ugly Duckling! All his brothers and sisters are the cutest things you've ever seen; but he's awkward, scruffy and... well, ugly.

What can you do when you don't fit in? How do you cope if you're different? Hans Christian Andersen's classic tale of individuality, rejection and acceptance is brought vividly to life in this new adaptation for children ages 3 to 7 and their families. 

 

A Christmas Carol (Sat 25th Nov - Sat 30th Dec) Directed by Paul Milton.

it's Christmas Eve and miserly Ebenezer Scrooge is paid an unexpected visit by the ghost of his former business partner Jacob Marley, who announces the arrival of three spirits...

This is the beginning of Charles Dickens' iconic story of greed, selfishness, and ultimate redemption; a story that is as much a part of Christmas as figgy pudding, the baubles on the tree and... well, Christmas carols.  Dickens' book is given a brand-new adaptation by the Everyman Theatre's Creative Director, Paul Milton, and promises to be an accessible, moving, and fast-paced production, suitable for all the family.
