A Christmas Carol Auditions

We are pleased to announce open auditions for our upcoming production of Dicken’s A Christmas Carol, the classic holiday tale recounting the story of Ebenezer Scrooge, an elderly miser who is visited by the ghost of his former business partner Jacob Marley and the spirits of Christmas Past, Present and Yet to Come whose visits transform him into a kinder, gentler man.  

This production is a beloved annual tradition for Hilliard Arts Council.  Auditions are open to adults and children ages 5 and up. There are 30 speaking roles available including Bob Cratchit and his family, various ghosts, and townspeople. The role of Ebeneezer Scrooge has been pre-cast.   There are also opportunities available for a children’s chorus who sing various carols during the show. One of the hallmarks of our production is a family friendly environment featuring a  multi-general cast and the opportunities it presents for experienced and novice actors of all ages.

Audition dates: 

  • Saturday, November 5 from 9am-11am
  • Sunday, November 6 from 7pm-9pm

COVID Policy

Due to the ongoing COVID pandemic  in Franklin County, we recommend the same protocol as county public health officials:  masks on all visitors and participants to the HCCAC are strongly recommended; vaccination is strongly recommended.  While not a requirement, we are trying to do our part to help limit community spread, and COVID outbreaks during rehearsal can be extremely disruptive (and disappointing!) to participants.  We will continue to comply with any local, county, or state requirements should these change. The Director reserves the right to require masks and implement other safety measures as needed to contain potential spread during the rehearsal process.
