    • Jingle, Jangle, Holly, Jolly, and Tinsel

To Audition:

Please download and fill out the audition form below (adult and youth). Send the filled-out form, resume, and headshot to Kelsey.H@ColumbusChildrensTheatre.org by October 26, 2020 before 5pm. A photo of the completed form is fine to send as well. See production calendar below for the rehearsal and filming schedule. 

A Note: The cast is expected to quarantine for 14 days, to the best of their ability, from October 27-November 9. During these two weeks before filming, there will be Zoom rehearsals. We will be taking safety precautions by sanitizing the performance space and any props (minimal), social distancing will take place during necessary in-person filming days, and cast members will be filmed individually in front of a green screen. As always, the health and safety of you, our cast, crew, and staff is CCT’s top priority.
