Casting Call forits-a-wonderful-life

“It’s a Wonderful Life, the musical”

Sunday & Monday, August 27 & 28 @ 6:00pm 

@ Chico Theater Company, 166 Eaton Road

Directed by Marc Edson

Music Direction by Christine Buckstead

Based on the beloved 1946 film, this musical faithfully follows George Bailey’s life from his childhood dreams to his midlife disappointments and beyond, as we all take a journey to discover whether his life has mattered at all. Cinematically scored and theatrically staged, this adaptation breathes musical life into a familiar story, while retaining the warmth, humor, and pathos of the original. A new holiday classic for devotees and newcomers alike.

All roles are being cast in this family friendly show.

Need men and women ages 5 years and up. Not all roles require singing but if you desire a lead role you must audition with a song! Please come prepared with approximately 60 to 90 seconds of music to perform. Sheet music is best but you may audition with a karaoke/backing tracks recording. Singing acapella is discouraged and will likely limit the likelihood of being cast.

Sides (script sections) will be provided for readings for auditions.

Rehearsals begin September 5th. Typical rehearsal schedule is Sunday through Wednesday, 6:30pm to 9:00pm. Early rehearsals may not include all cast members.

Performances begin Friday, November 24th and continue on Thu, Fri Sat nights and Sun afternoons through December 17th. YOU MUST BE AVAILABLE FOR ALL PERFORMANCES TO BE CONSIDERED FOR CASTING IN THIS SHOW.
