Audition Central: Magic Tree House: A Ghost Tale for Mr. Dickens JR.

Character Breakdown: Orphans

Orphan #1 and the Orphans are street urchins who  haunt Mr. Dickens after his disheartening encounter with Mr. Pinch. These are non-speaking roles, so this is a great opportunity to cast singers who are interested in exploring what musical theatre is all about without the pressure of having to memorize lines, etc. However, these roles do require kids who are able to  mime factory workers during a lengthy speech by Mr. Dickens and who must stay focused and  in character onstage even when they are not singing. Consider double casting as the Mourners who will sing a reprise of  Who Will Hear My Song?
