Prattville’s Way Off Broadway Theatre to Present A Charlie Brown Christmas

Prattville’s Way Off Broadway Theater is proud to announce its production of A Charlie Brown Christmas, directed by Pamela Trammell. The play will open December 7 and will run Thursday-Sunday through December 17. The classic animated television special A Charlie Brown Christmas comes to life in this faithful stage adaptation in which Charlie Brown, Snoopy, and the rest of the Peanuts Gang discover the true meaning of Christmas.

Auditions will be held Sunday, September 17, and Monday, September 18, at 6:30-8:30 p.m., at the Way Off Broadway Theater, located in the Prattville Cultural Arts Building, 203 West 4th Street, Prattville, Alabama 36067. You need to attend only one audition session to be considered for a role. Callbacks will be held at a later date, if necessary.

There are parts for five boy/youth and five girls/youth, ages 6-18, as well as a boy or girl actor for the role of Snoopy. There are roles for an adult male for the narrator and another adult role either male or female. A chorus ensemble and extras will be selected as well. The actors should be able to sing, especially the main characters, or be able to sing with a group.

Auditions are open to anyone interested and no prepared pieces are required. You will be asked to do cold readings from the script. Acting resumes and pictures are appreciated, but not necessary. Please bring with you all available information as far as scheduling conflicts from October through December.

A Charlie Brown Christmas was first shown as an animated television special in 1965 and has been part of the holiday tradition ever since. The stage adaptation was completed in 2013. A Charlie Brown Christmas will be produced by special arrangement with the Tams-Witmark Music Library, Inc., New York, New York.
