Stage Coach auditions for ‘White Christmas’

Published: Thursday, Aug. 21, 2014 5:30 a.m. CDT

Auditions for Stage Coach Players’ production of Irving Berlin’s “White Christmas” will be held at Sycamore United Methodist Church, 160 Johnson Ave., Sycamore, from 1 to 4 p.m. Saturday and Sunday and 6:30 to 9 p.m. Monday.

The “White Christmas” production will include eight shows, opening Dec. 4 and running through Dec. 14. Rehearsals will begin Oct. 8.

“White Christmas” is based on the 1954 American musical film directed by Michael Curtiz and starring Bing Crosby, Danny Kay, Rosemary Clooney and Vera-Ellen, loosely based on the 1942 film “Holiday Inn.” Stage Coach’s production will be directed by Josh Smith with music direction by Nika Plattos.

Casting includes men and women ages 20 to 60 and one girl age 9 to 12 (to play a 9-year-old). Those auditioning should come prepared with a song (bring sheet music for the audition pianist), be prepared to cold read scenes from the script and participate in a dance audition.
