Description:

Auditions for child singers for "A Christmas Story: The Musical". See the details below. ONLY LOCAL TALENT WILL BE ACCEPTED. 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: For this audition, please prepare 32 bars of a song to sing (about a minute’s worth). Preferably sheet music, hole punched, in a binder. Non-vocal backing tracks are also acceptable. Please plan to be there for 1.5-2 hours. The audition process is time-consuming and the directors will do best to stay on schedule. Callbacks for the show will be Sunday, 28 July starting at 12 PM. If you are interested please apply.
