“Marley was dead, to begin with…”—and what happens to Ebenezer Scrooge’s mean, sour, pruney old business partner after that? Chained and shackled, Marley is condemned to a hellish eternity. He’s even given his own private tormentor: a malicious little hell-sprite who thoroughly enjoys his work. Desperate, Marley accepts his one chance to free himself: To escape his own chains, he must first redeem Scrooge. So begins a journey of laughter and terror, redemption and renewal, during which Scrooge’s heart, indeed, is opened; but not before Marley—in this irreverent, funny and deeply moving story—discovers his own. Three Brothers Theatre is seeking 4-6 actors of any gender for it’s upcoming production of JACOB MARLEY’S CHRISTMAS CAROL. Each actor will portray a host of characters in Marley’s life throughout the play so versatility and physicality are a must. Looking for ages 15-99.  Please find a list of characters below. Callbacks will be sides from the script. Auditions will take place at 221 n Genesee ave, Waukegan IL, on Sunday September 22nd from 1-5. Callbacks will be September 23, beginning at 7pm.
