About the show:
In a festive mood, the ladies of the Farndale Avenue Housing Estate Townswomen’s Guild Dramatic Society mount another assault on the classics with their stage version of A Christmas Carol. They enthusiastically portray a dizzy array of characters from the Dickensian favorite (and a few which aren’t), engineer some novel audience participation while bravely contending with an intrusive PA system and a real Farndale first rap their vocal cords and feet around two original, show stopping songs. Loosely based on Charles Dickens’ A Christmas Carol. (Samuel French, Inc.)


  1. Clark Morrow says:

    How big is the male role?

  2. Vicki says:

    This is an ensemble show, the man’s part is pretty large. No monologues, but some fast paced banter.

  3. Dani Hernandez says:

    I can’t wait! Will there be singing for the audition? Also, what kind of British accent are you looking for? Lower, middle, or upper class?

  4. Barry says:

    How old is the man’s role?

    • Tom H says:

      I’d say that the role is open to any age. The one caveat is that there are some physical jokes that may be difficult for some actors (regardless of age).
