Tryon Palace Auditions for Christmas Candlelight Celebration

Tryon Palace Candlelight DancersOn Saturday, Aug. 5, auditions for the 37th Annual Christmas Candlelight Celebration will be held at the Waystation Auditorium from 1 – 4 p.m.

Tryon Palace is looking for men and women ages 18 and older for speaking and nonspeaking roles, as well as individuals who are willing to perform as 18th-century dancers.
