AUDITIONS for “Jingles of Christmas Past” 2019

“Jingles” is back again this year with a whole new line-up of musical numbers and hilarious, heartwarming Christmas skits!

Looking for . . . Male & female vocalists and/or actors – any age! 7-95yr!

When:     Sunday, September 22nd:

                  6:00-7:00pm – Ages 7-13yr

                  7:00-8:00pm – Ages 14yr on up through adults 

Register:    Go to this Sign Up Genius link to register for an audition time:

Where:      North Canton Playhouse, 525 – 7th St. NE, N. Canton (adjacent to Hoover High School)

What:        Vocalists: Come prepared with one vocal excerpt from a Christmas song (not Jingle Bells!), no more than 1 minute in length, that best shows your voice. You may sing acapella or bring a track (we will have speakers available for your device – no CD’s please).

Non-Vocalists: There will be cold readings from a script for your audition. No preparation needed.

We will be rehearsing lightly throughout the fall (I will try to work around conflicts for “Little Shop of Horrors” cast) and we will only have about two weeks full rehearsal (beginning Sunday, Nov. 17) prior to opening. Performance dates are December 5, 6, 7, 8 (Thursday, Friday, Saturday at 7:30pm & Sunday at 2:30pm). Questions? Email Lisa Paynter at



A big thank you to everyone who came out to audition! It takes a lot of courage to put yourself out there! This was a very hard show to cast due to the amount of talent we saw! If you were not cast, I really encourage you to come out and audition for another show in the future!
