Casting call for A Christmas Carol

A few flakes of unseasonal snow may have been a harbinger on Wednesday.

It was the day Judy Russell announced her production for the Christmas season and called on local actors to dig down deep and offer a farthing of talent for the poor audiences who would otherwise go without.

The play is a familiar one - A Christmas Carol. The Dickens classic has been done by Russell more than once, on years that alternate from her ongoing biennial show The Nutcracker.

Since this was an off-year for the ballet, it was time for another title and Russell went back to the old favourite.

The tale of miserly Ebenezer Scrooge and his wild night of ghostly hauntings is in need of a cast. Audition dates are Saturday and Sunday for those wanting to try out. There are needs for children, adults, actors, singers, and also volunteer stage crew. Anyone aged eight and older is invited for the tryouts (past stage experience recommended).

The show will run Dec. 13-22 at the Prince George Playhouse.

The auditions will be held at Russell's Enchainement Dance Centre at 3540 Opie Cres. For times and audition details, call 250-563-2902 or email
