tiny tim photo 2The Public Theatre, Lewiston/Auburn’s Professional Theatre is holding auditions on Sat, Oct 19th (by appointment only), for a young boy or girl to play the role of child/Tiny Tim in its annual production of A Christmas Carol.

This is a very exciting opportunity for a talented young actor or actress to work alongside professional actors. Ideally the boy or girl should be no taller than 5 feet, and appear to be under 13 years old. We’re looking for a young actor with a childlike sense of innocence and spunk capable of memorizing some of Dickens’ language.

The young actor or actress must be available for rehearsals and performances from Dec 2 - 15. This job is a paid position. Being a professional theatre, this is an intense two week commitment of time that will require missing some school.

In order to audition, you must be available the following rehearsal and performance days: Dec 2 from noon to 8pm, Dec 3, 4, 5 from afterschool til 7pm, Dec 7 from 11-7pm, Dec 8 from noon-10pm, Dec 10, 11, 12 from 9am - 1pm, Dec 13 from 6:30 -9pm, Dec 14 from 1:30 - 9pm, Dec 15 from 1:30 - 4pm.

If you are interested in auditioning please email the child’s name, age, photo and contact information BY MONDAY, OCT 14th to: info@thepublictheatre.org or call 782-2211 for more information. Once we receive your materials, we will contact you to set up an audition appointment, and tell you the audition material we would like to see prepared.
