ABOUT THE SHOWS:

“Around the World in 80 Days”
Directed by Richard R. Cowden
Rehearsals September 3-October 4, 2024
Performances October 5-October 27, 2024

Embark on a fast-paced journey with wealthy Englishman Phileas Fogg and his loyal French valet, Passepartout, who have wagered they can circumnavigate the globe in just 80 days! Doggedly pursued by Detective Fix, they set the timer on a riotous and suspenseful race-against-the-clock romp. Traveling by boat and train, they visit exotic locales and meet a wide array of quirky characters…and an elephant!

“Ebenezer Scrooge’s Big Aurora Fox Christmas Show”
Directed by Steven J. Burge
Rehearsals October 28-November 29, 2024
Performances November 30-December 22, 2024

Five nimble actors play dozens of roles in this hilariously fast-paced and highly imaginative staging of the world’s most famous holiday tale! No, not the one with the kid and the BB gun… the other one… that’s not the green fuzzy guy… or the one with Will Ferrell. We’re talking about the one with the three ghosts and the dead guy wearing chains. Ebenezer Scrooge and friends terrorize the good citizens of the Aurora Fox in search of redemption and the true spirit of the holiday season. This riotous Dickens mashup is wacky fun for the entire family!

ABOUT THE AUDITION:

Both shows feature ensemble casts where most actors play multiple characters. Ability to quickly shift and to create easily differentiated characters is crucial. For details about the characters in both shows, see CASTING INFORMATION on our audition info page.

Auditions will be held in 5 minute time slots on Saturday, June 15 from 11AM-3PM and Monday, June 17 from 3:30AM-7:30PM. If you are interested but unable to attend one of these days, please contact Production Manager Jen Orf at jorf@auroragov.org for options.

Actors of all genders, ethnicities and abilities are encouraged to audition. All actors may be considered for any role in either show.

Please prepare:

  • Two comedic monologues approximately one minute each (contemporary or classical). Total Audition not to exceed 3 minutes.
  • One of your monologues should showcase your abilities with an accent of your choice.
  • Please show some physicality in your audition- you don’t need to dance, but we would like to see how you move and how you use movement to further the storytelling in your monologue.
