Holiday Spirit Auditions

It's spring! So that means it's time to audition for the Westfield Theatre Group's Christmas show! We will be presenting a great Palmer-Dunk production again this year, bringing back a family favorite, Holiday Spirit. It is written and directed by Kathleen Palmer, with music/musical direction by Marion Dunk.

Auditions will be held at the Westfield Woman's Club on Monday and Tuesday June 11th and 12th, 2018, starting at 6:30 PM for children 9-14. Adult auditions will be held starting at approximately 7:15 PM. There are many male and female roles with plenty of chorus parts available. The role of the holiday spirit has been already cast, with Carol Palmer reprising the role she did so wonderfully when WTG performed the show several years ago.

Anyone auditioning should be prepared to sing about 30 seconds to 3 minutes of a song that displays their vocal ability. There will be no musical accompaniment, so please bring CD or similar accompaniment. Anyone reading for a role will be asked to read from the script. Should anyone wish to get a copy of the script, please contact Kathi at katpalmer@comcast.net
