Oakdale, NY, United States
ID: 568790Exp: 9/24/2024

Audition for "A Christmas Story" Musical. Looking to cast kids and teens. Please see the details below. About the project: This musical, which received rave reviews on its Broadway run, is based on the movie classic that runs round-the-clock on television every Christmas. Set in the 1940s in the fictional town of Hohman, Indiana, the musical follows 9-year-old Ralphie Parker and his quest for the Holy Grail of Christmas gifts—an Official Red Ryder carbine-action 200-shot Range Model air rifle. Rebuffed at every turn with a similar echoing response, Ralphie plots numerous schemes to achieve his desperate desire for the coveted BB gun. All the iconic scenes from the movie are here: Ralphie’s friend, Flick, getting his tongue stuck to the flagpole; his brother, Randy, getting dressed in his snowsuit; the bullies, Farkus and Dill; the leg lamp award; the bunny suit; Christmas dinner; and many others. The delightfully versatile score ranges from gentle ballads to show-stopping full-ensemble numbers such as “Ralphie to the Rescue!”, “A Major Award,” “Sticky Situation,” “Up on Santa’s Lap,” “Somewhere Hovering Over Indiana” and the inevitable “You’ll Shoot Your Eye Out!” A Christmas Story, The Musical will bring an exciting new dimension to those who have seen the movie and will certainly stand on its own for those who haven’t. Additional info: Please prepare a 16 – 32 bar cut of a musical theatre song either from the show or in a similar style. An accompanist will be provided. A dance audition will follow vocal auditions for those asked to stay. Please wear footwear you are comfortable dancing in.

10 roles

RalphieMale9-10 y.o.All ethnicities

vocal range = F#3 to D5 A bright, winsome, mischievous 5th grade boy… Not a smart-aleck or overly precocious, Ralphie’s imagination drives several scenes. The actor playing this role carries several songs; he must be an excellent singer (high belt, unchanged voice) and confident stage presence.

RandyMale7-8 y.o.All ethnicities

vocal range = F#3 to D5 Ralphie’s younger brother, he is cute, lovable and a bit whiny. The actor playing this role must be a confident singer, a f luent reader and have strong stage presence and a sense of humor.

FlickMale9-10 y.o.All ethnicities

One of Ralphie’s classmates and best buddies; Flick is the guinea pig in the flagpole licking experiment. Sings some solos, so should be a confident singer and comedic actor. *Unchanged voice.

SchwartzBoth genders9-10 y.o.All ethnicities

One of Ralphie’s classmates and best buddies; Schwartz becomes the scapegoat when Ralphie utters an unmentionable word. Sings some solos, so should be a confident singer. *Unchanged voice.

Scut FarkusMale12-13 y.o.All ethnicities

A textbook example of a schoolyard bully, Scut is loud, obnoxious and intimidating. This truant is a year or two older than Ralphie and his friends, and wears a perpetual scowl under his coonskin cap.

Grover DillMale9-10 y.o.All ethnicities

Grover is Farkus’s toady, and is always at his side. Younger and smaller than Farkus, Grover delights in being tethered to his “hero”. His rapid-fire belly laughs, always heard with Farkus’s threats, make them the scourge of the neighborhood. *Unchanged voice.

Mary BethFemale9-10 y.o.All ethnicities

NancyBoth genders9-10 y.o.All ethnicities

Kids EnsembleBoth genders9-18 y.o.All ethnicities
