A CHRISTMAS CAROL AUDITIONS!
Tuesday and Wednesday, September 19 & 20 at 7PM both nights.

Directed by Joel Earley

The Harbor Playhouse welcomes community participation and encourages new people to audition for productions. Bring your talent, your confidence, and a great attitude. We look forward to putting you center stage!

SYNOPSIS: Charles Dickens' A CHRISTMAS CAROL gets the full Broadway treatment by multi award winning composer Alan Menken (The Little Mermaid, Beauty and the Beast & Tangled), and Lynn Ahrens (Ragtime, Anastasia). This timeless classic is a spectacular musical, which tells the tale of Ebenezer Scrooge as he goes through a series of strange events after being warned by his former business partner Jacob Marley to change his ways. This brilliant musical follows Scrooge on Christmas Eve, as he is visited by the ghosts of Christmas PAST, PRESENT, and FUTURE, which leads him to ultimately discover the true spirit of Christmas.
