Dear “Scrooge” Auditioner:
Thank you for taking time to audition for “Scrooge.” All of us on the audition committee are grateful for the honor of your presence and the time you invested in being with us to make a memorable audition presentation.
As you know from the comments at the auditions, the “Scrooge” script has its own unique framework and particular demands. Therefore, competition is keen — Especially when one considers that so many of those who auditioned were extremely talented.
We count you as among the talented! And we are also humbled by how many truly talented people there are in the Inland Empire. The high caliber of audition talent present is most impressive, and we consider it a privilege that you took time and made preparations to be with us and present your own best effort.
Be assured that your efforts and patience are most appreciated. All of us on the audition panel want to extend to you, in as personal a manner as this website permits, our own special thanks. While obvious logistical constraints prevent our writing to you personally, we want you to know we gave your audition careful consideration.
Please know that many factors go into the final selection – and such factors have absolutely no bearing on your intrinsic worth as a person or your basic talent as a performer. In fact, some factors that go into casting are simply beyond your (and our) control, regardless of the caliber of the audition: such factors as character types required by the script, and mundane matters such as age ranges needed, stage space, heights of certain performers, the mix of individuals needed for certain scenes, etc.
It has been an honor to have you participate in our audition process. Our next auditions will be October 19, 2023 for “The Hiding Place” We hope you will all consider auditioning again in the future.
*Cast Orientation will be Tuesday, October 3 at 7:00PM until 10:30PM at the LifeHouse Theater. Additional lines and parts will be assigned at orientation.
