Auditions will be in the Prayer Chapel, behind the Main Sanctuary. Enter through the doors by the red steps, facing CCS Elementary School.

Auditions are on a first-come, first serve-basis. Those auditioning will be seen as they arrive and sign in, with the exception of dancers. Dancers are to be here promptly at the start of auditions.

You only need to come to one day of auditions.

Auditions will consist of a cold read from the script. Please also come with a clean, thirty second to one minute monologue of your choice.

Those auditioning for a singing role, please also come with a prepared audition song, roughly 16 bars (1 minute maximum). Roles listed with an asterisk* require singing. Soldiers and Townspeople are nonspeaking, but require some group/choral singing. All other singing roles are also speaking.

Anyone under the age of 18 must have a parent with them at the audition to read over and sign the audition form. Those who are 18 but still in high school will still need a parent to be with them. Thank you!

*PLEASE NOTE: IF NEEDED, THERE WILL BE CALLBACKS ON THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 19TH 6-9PM*

ABOUT THE CHRISTMAS JOURNEY:
The Christmas Journey is a TCA Worship Arts original that gives the audience a closer look at the people we often hear about leading up to the birth of Jesus, but never get to know deeper. By experiencing a bit of their different encounters, we will get to see more of the role they played, how they might have been affected, and what it might have been like to be one of those key figures as they went on the journey of a lifetime to the birth of the Messiah!
