Calling all budding actors! A Christmas Story, The Musical! is preparing to launch a five-city national tour for the 2011 holiday season. Casting directors are seeking to fill the iconic lead role of Ralphie and his troupe of friends and classmates, including: Randy, Flick, Schwartz, Scut Farcus, Grover Dill, Mary Beth, and Esther Jane. Children, ages of 8 – 13, should be extraordinary actors, singers, and dancers. The production seeks young actors of all ethnicities who are 4’ 11” and shorter. (Boys, your voice should not have changed yet.). Young performers can now submit their audition by clicking here and following three simple steps:

1. Record a video of yourself singing a brief song that is rhythmic and that shows us your voice, high notes, and personality. A classic Broadway or a holiday song is suggested.

2. Get a recent digital picture or headshot of yourself and your resume. (If you don’t have a resume, just prepare a brief paragraph about yourself in a Word Document.)

3. Go to www.AChristmasStoryTheMusical/casting and follow the link to register with our online casting site, LetItCast®, and follow their instructions to submit your video, photo, and information.

Submissions should be no longer than 90 seconds and only one audition video is allowed.

A Christmas Story, The Musical! will rehearse in Chicago, October 10 before commencing a five-city national tour: Hershey, PA (Hershey Theatre, Nov. 8 – 13); Detroit, MI (Fisher Theatre, Nov. 15 – 27); Raleigh, NC (Memorial Auditorium, Nov. 29 – Dec. 4); and Tampa, FL (Straz Center, Dec. 6-11), before returning to The Chicago Theatre for performances Dec. 14 - 30, 2011.
