Dreaming of Being In A White Christmas

If you’ve got an aspiring actress/singer/dancer who’s between the ages of 9 and 12 put October 2 on your calendar. That’s when Irving Berlin’s White Christmas is hosting open auditions at the The Joffrey Ballet (10 E Randolph St) for the General’s Granddaughter. There’s a lot of fine print with this one, so I’ll just let them fill you in on the details:

Auditions are for the role of Susan Waverly (the General’s granddaughter). There will be two girls sharing this role on the tour and one has already been cast.  The exact performance schedule will be determined.  Interested young actresses between the ages of 9-12 years old who sing well should be prepared to do the following:

  • Bring one copy of headshot and resume.  Head shots will not be returned and these items are required to audition.
  • Be ready to sing “Let Me Sing And I’m Happy (Reprise)” from the show. An accompanist will be provided. 
  • Please wear comfortable clothing.
  • Please be aware that you may be asked to do a cold reading.

Please note that the child who is selected must participate in all rehearsals and performances.  In order to be cast in the tour of Irving Berlin’s WHITE CHRISTMAS the actress must be available from October 11, 2010 through January 2, 2011 and be able to make a commitment for this entire time period.  Tentative schedule includes rehearsals in New York from October 11-23, Tech & Previews in Chattanooga, Tennessee from October 24-31, an engagement in Atlanta beginning November 2, followed by performances in Greenville, Harford, Schenectady, Tampa, Charlotte and Chicago (the tour closes in Chicago).
