Synopsis:

Drunk Christmas is Audacious Theatre's annual Holiday fundraiser. Six inebriated actors play all of the roles in a short-n-sweet, comedic, and interactive version of A Christmas Carol. Performances take place at breweries across the Denver area.

 

Characters: 

Most actors portray multiple characters. We have most of our ensemble, but they are not locked into their roles. We are looking for a few more actors and all roles would be open to them.

Characters include:

  • Scrooge

  • Narrator/Ghost of Christmas Present

  • Bob Crachit/Fezziwig

  • Mrs. Crachit/Belle

  • Jacob Marley/Tiny Tim

  • Fred/Ghost of Christmas Past & Future

 

This show is fully scripted with space for improvisation and audience interaction. Please note: Actors are expected to be intoxicated during the performance and fully vaccinated.

What We're Looking for:

  • Men, Women, and non Binary performers of all ages, shades, and shapes. 

  • Actors who know their limits in terms of drinking, and are comfortable performing inebriated (but not wasted).

  • Actors comfortable with script-based improvisation, direct interaction with audience members, and navigating the unpredictable. 

  • Theater artists interested in and capable of working collaboratively.

A Note About Working with Us:

Audacious Theatre is a collaborative company and performers are expected to take ownership of the creation and success of the show on multiple levels. We are interested in building an ensemble and relationships with theatre artists that are mutually beneficial. 

 

Compensation: 

Since this is our fundraiser, there is no pay, but your drinks are covered.
