A cast for regular evening and weekend performances (full version) and a cast for weekday school matinee performances (truncated version) will be chosen. Auditionees have the opportunity to select the cast for which they would like to be considered. Auditionees may choose to be considered for both casts. While most actors on the Theatre Memphis stage are volunteers, actors who perform in the weekday school cast of A Christmas Carol do get a small stipend.

A Christmas Carol returns to Theatre Memphis this year for the 35th consecutive year with the perennial Barry Fuller as Ebenezer Scrooge in the full length version. The abbreviated “daytime” version of the production will feature a separate cast (though one can be in both casts in possibly different roles) and all roles are open for the truncated show.
