Audition Description

A Christmas Story, The Musical is set in Indiana in November and December, 1940. The Depression is just ending, and Christmas is approaching! Ralphie, our 9-year-old hero, dreams of getting an air rifle for Christmas-- and not just any air rifle, but the Red Ryder Carbine Action BB Gun!

.

  • Role #1 - Ralphie

    A 5th grade boy who wants an Air Rifle for Christmas: specifically, the Red Ryder Carbine Action BB Gun. He is a bright, winsome, mischievous, cute kid...someone you wouldn't mind having as a next-door neighbor. (He might shovel your driveway for you--and then use your shovel as a sled!) Not a smart-aleck or overly precocious, Ralphie's imagination drives several scenes.

  • Role #2 - The Old Man

    Gruff and grumbling on the exterior, Ralphie's Dad has a good heart. He doesn't overtly show it, but he does love his family. A blue-collar guy, he usually expects the worst out of most situations; but is transformed into a true "song and dance" man in his moments of fantasy.

  • Role #3 - Mother

    She is the secret engine that runs the family, keeping the household together with a smile--despite bickering children, limited funds, an X-rated lamp in the living room window, a cranky furnace and a crankier husband. She would never let The Old Man know that she is more in charge than he is--as is appropriate for a housewife of this era! Vibrant, warm, affable--but not a pushover--she is always busy, especially anytime she is in the kitchen, and even more so at Christmastime!

  • The Santa Claus at Higbee's Department Store is ill-tempered, slightly inebriated and very unhappy with his job--nothing like the "Jolly Old Elf" of the Christmas stories! He gets rid of each kid as fast as he can--probably to shorten his day so he can head for the nearest "watering hole

  • Role #9 - Scut Farkus

    A textbook example of a schoolyard bully, Scut is loud, obnoxious and intimidating. This truant is a year or two older than Ralphie and his friends, and wears a perpetual scowl under his coonskin cap. He always appears at the most inopportune time to harass his victims. In the end, when he and his sidekick, Grover Dill, are bested, they show themselves to the biggest cowards of all".

    Grover is Farkus's toady, and is always at his side. Younger and smaller than Farkus, Grover delights in being tethered to his "hero". His rapid-fire belly laughs, always heard with Farkus's threats, make them the scourge of the neighborhood. The actor playing this role may play other roles in the Kids Ensemble.

  • Role #16 - Jean Shepherd

    Jean Shepherd is the actual author of the books that the story is based on, as well as the actual narrator voice we hear in the 1983 movie! On stage, he is a warm, charismatic and engaging storyteller; omniscient but not overpowering. A good-natured curmudgeon with a deadpan sense of humor, \"Jean\" focuses the action, keeps the story moving and holds the audiences\' attention with his presence and spark. Throughout the show, the actor playing this role acts as a narrator, interacts with the actor playing Ralphie, and appears in scenes as different minor characters--sometimes within one scene! This actor must be very comfortable with audiences, and must be able to \"read the crowd\" and tell the story at the same time.
