Auditions open for Scrooged in Astoria


September 28, 2017

The Astor Street Opry Company has announced its holiday production of “Scrooged in Astoria,” written by local playwright, Judith P. Niland, original music by Philip Morill and directed by Bill Carr with musical direction by ChrisLynn Taylor.

Stylized as a 1960’s style Holiday TV special, this show is loosely based on the “Christmas Carol” by Charles Dickens, but with characters straight out of the ASOC long running summer melodrama “Shanghaied in Astoria.” This show even has singing commercials.

Open auditions will be held October 8 and 9 at 6 p.m., at the ASOC Playhouse. Rehearsals will begin the following week. No previous theatre or music experience is necessary for any of the small or large parts for over 26 actors and actresses, boys and girls, ages 12 and older.

Performance dates are Fridays and Saturdays at 7 p.m., December 1-23. There will be two matinees, December 10 and 17 at 2 p.m. The house opens 30 minutes before each performance.
