Casting Information


A CHRISTMAS CAROL Community Ensemble

If you are a local non-equity or young actor, the best way to get involved at McCarter will be the A Christmas Carol Community Ensemble. For the new reimagined production, we will cast local actors of all ages to be a part of the magic during the holiday season. This ensemble aims to engage and involve the diverse and talented community that surrounds McCarter, creating opportunities for performers of all ages, genders, races, and levels of ability. This diverse and enthusiastic group fills the streets of London, dances with the Fezziwigs, carols at Scrooge’s doorstep, and brings Christmas cheer to every corner of McCarter.

Please note that our theater series is cast by freelance casting directors. Breakdowns for specific casting calls are posted on Breakdown Express. Calls for headshot and resume self-submissions are posted through Actors’ Equity Association’s NYC audition department on a show by show basis.


McCarter Theatre employs a search rather than submission method when scouting new work. We believe a focused and directed approach benefits both McCarter and the artists we serve.
