The MAC offers a variety of plays with an array of challenging roles suitable for a wide demographic.
All casting is done through open auditions supervised by the play’s director. Audition times and dates are posted in advance on the website as well as on other area theater call boards and forums.
Rehearsals usually run two to three hours, three days a week during non-business hours for six or seven weeks, depending on the coordination between the director and the cast. Participation in set and prop construction is encouraged but subject to an individual’s schedule and abilities. Performers are unpaid and all roles are non-Equity.
The MAC Theater celebrates diversity and seeks people of all backgrounds regardless of age, race, creed, or national origin. All are welcome!

A Christmas Carol: A Radio Drama
Written by Charles Dickens
Adapted for radio by Anthony Palermo
Directed by Rick Sherburne
December 2, 3, 9, 10, 11 (dates subject to change)
The MAC Theater announces open auditions for the upcoming production of the holiday classic A Christmas Carol, adapted for radio from Charles Dickens’ novella by Anthony Palermo, directed by Rick Sherburne.
Auditions will be held in the MAC’s Anne Braitmayer Webb Theater on Saturday, October 1, 12:00-2:00pm and Sunday, October 2, 2:00-4:00pm, with callbacks on Monday, October 3 at 7:00pm if necessary. The MAC is located at 80 Pleasant Street in Marion, MA. Performance dates are scheduled December 2, 3, 9, 10, 11, 2022. Some dates are subject to change. Evening shows begin at 7:30pm while Sunday matinees begin at 2:00pm.
Auditions will consist of the reading of scenes from the show for the many familiar characters: Scrooge, the Cratchits, Jacob Marley and the other spirits of Christmas and numerous supporting roles. While this is written as a radio play, this production will focus on its storytelling nature, focusing on the quality of the performances as heard through the voice. As such, individual cast members may play multiple parts, and male and female roles may not be gender-bound. In short, those who wish to audition should come prepared to try out for whatever part appeals to them. Only fully vaccinated actors will be considered for roles.
Please send any questions to Director Rick Sherburne at firstname.lastname@example.org.
