A Bluegrass Christmas Carol

BCTC Theatre will be holding auditions for the WORLD PREMIERE production of "A Bluegrass Christmas Carol" by Treyton Blackburn, Oct 11th and 12th at 7PM each night in room C-136 of the Leestown Road Campus (this is the big conference room, across from the Bookstore and the vending area. There is parking right behind that you may use in the evening.)

The auditions will be cold reading (no monologue required) BUT we do ask auditionees to prepare 12-16 bars (about 20-30 seconds) of any traditional Christmas song!

We are searching for a diverse cast, and roles are open for actors from teens to 70's, and everything in between. There will be a copy of the first act of the play put on reserve in the Newton Road campus library, starting OCT 4th.

The production is slated to run Nov 30th- Dec 2nd.
Rehearsals will begin the week of Oct 16th, and will be evenings between 6-10PM.

This is a NEW twist on an old favorite, which takes place in Kentucky in the 1940s.

Christmastime, 1949. In and around the Howdo Valley Entertainment Center in Kentucky. Old E.B. Scrooge is a miserly, maligned music producer with a hearty disdain for the saccharine Christmas tunes that have taken over the radio this time of year. Even the band headlined by his nephew Freddy and his new down-on-his-luck collaborator Bobby Cratchit are desperate to get in on the holiday music, pointing to the earnest joy of the season as inspirational. E.B. dismisses this notion with his classic expression of discontent: Humbug! With the band's bookings steadily declining, Scrooge issues an ultimatum: turn it around by the new year without the Christmas frills or he's pulling his funding.

Then... Well, you know what comes next! Or do you?
