ACT's annual holiday stage production of the Charles DIckens classic about miserly Ebenezer Scrooge, who learns the true meaning of holiday spirit from three ghostly visitors. David PIchette and Peter Crook alternate as Scrooge, with Sunam Ellis and Reginald Jackson as the Cratchits.
ACT is committed to equity, diversity, and inclusivity in casting, and to presenting a community on stage that reflects the community of which we’re a part. All children aged 6 to 15 who would like to try out for the play are welcome! (NOTE: For contractual reasons young actors cast in the show must be under the age of 16 – that is, no older than 15 as of the final performance on December 28.)
Character Breakdown / Project Needs
ROLES AVAILABLE (age ranges approximate):
Two of the young actors cast as Cratchits double as YOUNG SCROOGE and FAN.
STREET URCHIN/SINGING THIEF/UNDERTAKER’S ASSISTANT – Age 9-15. Solid singer, strong acting skills, charisma. Savvy street kid and jack of all trades, gregarious, engaging, Artful Dodger type.
MARTHA CRATCHIT-- Age 11-15. Warm, serene, loving, a second mother to the little ones, already out working to help support the family.
PETER CRATCHIT -- Age 11-15. Practical, helpful, a leader with a sense of fun. Trying hard to be the man of the family when his father isn’t around, but still enough of a kid to get caught up in the younger children’s games. (Possible double: Young Scrooge).
CHARLES CRATCHIT -- Age 9-12. Bright, ebullient, full of fun and high spirits. The kind of kid who’ll tease his sisters unmercifully one minute and in the next one give them a bear hug to show he didn’t mean it. (Possible double: Young Scrooge.)
BELINDA CRATCHIT -- Age 9-13. Quiet, sweet, a little shy, but the most intuitive and tuned in to changes in the emotional atmosphere; always wanting to make things easier or make others feel better. (Possible double: Fan).
ELIZABETH CRATCHIT -- Age 6-10. Outgoing, spontaneous, affectionate, not afraid to compete for her share of her parents’ attention. (Possible double: Fan.)
TINY TIM -- Age 5-10. Youngest Cratchit. A fragile child with a walking disability. Chipper and sweet-natured, an old soul and the apple of everybody’s eye. Ideally under 4’2” and less than 60 lbs. [Possible double: Fan.]
YOUNG SCROOGE -- Age 9-14. Strong acting skills. Plays Scrooge both as a child and as an adolescent. Intelligent, inquisitive, but already showing the effects of a lonely, loveless childhood.
FAN -- Age 6-11. Scrooge’s younger sister. Radiant, innocent, loving, the embodiment of all things good and beautiful
