New Mexico State University Theatre Arts will hold auditions for children ages 5-13 for the production of "A Christmas Carol" on Sept. 16 at Hershel Zohn Theatre.

Boys and girls ages 5-7 will audition for the role of Tiny Tim from 4-4:30 p.m. Auditions include simple staged movements and games. The role of Tiny Tim will be played by two different child actors.

Boys and girls ages 8-13 will audition for the roles of Fan/Belinda Crachit/Want and Caroling Boy/Young Scrooge/Peter Crachit/Neglect from 4:30-5:15 p.m. The auditions consist of reading from the script and singing a favorite Christmas song acapella.

Children outside the requested age ranges will not be considered. All auditioners are asked to bring a current photograph, which NMSU Theatre Arts will keep.

"A Christmas Carol" rehearsals will run from 6-9:30 p.m. Sunday through Thursday beginning Oct. 17. Performances will run from Nov. 19 through Dec. 5.

Young actors will not be called to every rehearsal and may not be required to stay for the entire rehearsal.
