Auditions scheduled for Tryon Palace’s Candlelight: A Colonial Christmas Celebration

Tryon Palace Candlelight Dancers

Tryon Palace will host auditions for parts in Candlelight: A Colonial Christmas Celebration Saturday, Aug. 6, from 1 – 3pm in the Waystation Auditorium.

Available roles are for men and women ages 18 and older in both speaking and nonspeaking roles, as well as individuals who are willing to perform as 18th-century dancers and soldiers.

Speaking roles are for scenes in the 18th, 19th and 20th centuries. No prepared monologues. Those auditioning for speaking roles will perform a cold reading. During Candlelight some characters are placed inside buildings and some characters are outside.

Tryon Palace’s 36th annual Christmas Candlelight Celebration is scheduled for Saturdays, Dec. 10 and 17 and occurs rain or shine. Those auditioning should plan on performing at both dates if selected.
