River Theater Company announces second round of auditions

CHARLESTOWN, N.H. – River Theater Company in Charlestown just completed a first round of auditions for its upcoming musical production, “A Christmas Story” that will be presented at the Claremont Opera House in November. A lot of very talented people came out, however, some key roles still need to be filled. The Company will be holding a second series of auditions on Sunday July 9 at 4:00 p.m. at the Charlestown Town Hall.

They are especially looking for boys who sing and men who sing and move well, but will see anyone interested in auditioning for the show. Please be prepared to read, sing and move at the auditions. We are also looking for people (adults and children) who know how to tap or are willing to learn (you don’t have to know how to tap to audition). Anyone who has already auditioned does not have to attend again. River Theater recently received a generous grant from the Claremont Savings Bank to help sponsor this production.

“A Christmas Story” is the musical version of the classic 1983 film comedy about a young boy named Ralphie Parker who wants an official Red Ryder Carbine Action BB Gun for Christmas. “A Christmas Story” has a large cast of children, teens and adults.

We are also always looking for volunteers who love theater and community events but don’t want to appear on stage. There are lots of opportunities to get involved- set construction, props, costumes, production assistants, advertising, and more!

To register for the auditions, to become a volunteer, or get more information, please email mwright@rivertheater.org or visit our River Theater Company Facebook page.
