The Hole in the Wall Theater is holding auditions for a staged reading of “A Seussified Christmas Carol”, a one-act written by Peter Bloedel, directed and produced by Kim Wantroba. Auditions will take place on Sunday November 24th at 6:00 pm at Hole in the Wall Theater, 116 Main Street, New Britain CT.

A Seussified Christmas Carol is “A whimsical reinvention of Dickens’ most beloved Christmas story in wacky rhyming couplets. With zoot-fruited juices and binka bird geese, from Bed-Headed Fred to Timmy Loo-Hoo, this tale of glorious holiday cheer is similar to something Dr Seuss may have come up with – if he ever had his way with the story…”

There are many roles available for people of all ages. This would be a great show for your whole family of actors to participate in. Aside from the roles listed below, there are non-speaking group roles for: Street people, Rock Band Members, Swooning Girls, Dancers, The Neds, The Cratchit Children and more. Roles can be doubled up if necessary. Auditioners will be expected to read from the script.

Rehearsals will take place on Sundays from 5:00 pm -7:00 pm, Dec 1, Dec 8, and Dec 15. Performances are Friday and Saturday, Dec 20 and 21 at 7:00 pm and Saturday 22 at 2:00 pm.

If there are any questions, or if you are interested in participating but can’t make the audition, please feel free to email Kim Wantroba at or call/text her at 203-232-6819.
