CRESTVIEW — The View From the Stage community theatre troupe seeks upward of 40 actors, singers and dancers of all ages eager to recreate Dickensonian London.

The company will hold auditions next weekend for its third production, a musical adaptation of Charles Dickens' holiday classic, “A Christmas Carol” to run Dec. 12-15.

The only part cast is Ebenezer Scrooge, whom Nick Trolian will portray, Director Sandra Peters said. Trolian appeared in Northwest Florida State College’s summertime production of "Les Misérables.”

Up for grabs are roles including Bob Cratchit, Jacob Marley’s ghost, Cratchit family members, Fan Scrooge, the Fezziwigs, townspeople, businessmen and the ghosts of Christmases past, present and yet-to-come.

"British 'upper crust' and Cockney accents are a plus," VFS publicist Berit Faust said.

"We'd love to have a nice big group at auditions," Peters said, adding if enough talented people audition, she may double-cast some of the lead roles.

Backstage and production crewmembers are also needed, Faust said.
