Auditions Dec. 5
A Christmas Story audience member auditions

By on November 20, 2022

Theatre of Dare will be gearing up to perform more holiday mainstays at Dare Arts in downtown Manteo.

A Christmas Story is the ubiquitous 1983 family-friendly holiday movie classic about a boy named Ralphie’s quest for that elusive Christmas gift: a Red Ryder air rifle. But in Theatre of Dare’s interactive staged reading version, only six main characters will be cast, with audience members asked to fill in the smaller roles. “It should be a lot of fun for everyone,” said director Gail Hutchison.

Auditions for those six roles will be held at 6 p.m. Dec. 5 at Dare Arts, with performances scheduled for Dec. 15-17 at 7:30 and a Dec. 18 matinee at 2 p.m. Tickets for A Christmas Story: The Reading will go on sale online on Nov. 28.
