Burien Little Theatre Seeking Actor In Teens Or 20s To Play 12-Year-Old Boy
Our friends at Burien Little Theatre are seeking an Actor in his teens or 20s to play 12-year-old Luther Beatty in the hilarious holiday comedy “Inspecting Carol,” written by Daniel J. Sullivan and The Seattle Repertory Theatre, and coming to BLT in late November.
“Luther Beatty is an extremely friendly 12-year-old who is really too big to be playing Tiny Tim, a role he has been performing two years too long,” reads a press release. “He could be played by a youthful-looking actor in his later teens or 20s.”
Here the synopsis of the show:
A sidesplittingly funny holiday hit since premiering at the Seattle Rep in 1992, “Inspecting Carol” is part “Noises Off,” part “Waiting for Guffman.” Almost broke, Soapbox Theatre Company is struggling to mount their annual cash cow, the holiday classic “A Christmas Carol.” An inspector from the National Endowment for the Arts is expected any minute. When a young actor is mistaken for the inspector, cast and crew cater to his every whim to try to win their government funding, The result: the most hilarious and disastrous production of “A Christmas Carol” ever. This is a very ensemble work with 12 characters ranging in age from teens to 60s.
Performances will be at Burien Little Theatre from Nov. 25 through Dec. 18, 2011. Rehearsals begin in mid-October.
Stage director will be Maggie Larrick.
$100 stipend provided.
