Auditions for Hilarious Comedy
August 1 & 3


Inspecting Carol Auditions



The Chatham Players will hold auditions for the hilarious Inspecting Carol by Daniel Sullivan and the Seattle Rep Theatre.

WHEN:  Monday, August 1st and Wednesday, August 3rd at 7pm. Actors must check in to the auditions by 8pm. Callbacks are scheduled for August 4 at 7pm.
WHERE: The Chatham Playhouse 23 North Passaic Ave., Chatham

Production dates are October 14 thru 23, 2022 with rehearsals to begin late August. Belle Wesel directs.

Often described as A Christmas Carol meets The Government Inspector meets Noises Off. The Soapbox Playhouse will lose its funding unless their annual production of A Christmas Carol can really impress the Inspector sent by the National Endowment for the Arts! But who is he? When will he arrive? Is he at the theatre already? The director is desperate! The cast is discombobulated! Why is Tiny Tim so big? A Christmas Carol goes terribly, hilariously wrong—with mistaken identity, wardrobe malfunctions and backstage high-jinks! It’s a Dickens of a show!!

Director Belle Wesel seeks 12 actors (Teens to 70’s). The play is a fairly broad comedy, Ms. Wesel is looking for your best comic audition piece. The role of Bart may include mime or clowning, if that’s your thing. Actors attending the LIVE auditions will be asked to read from sides provided at the audition, these are available on Chatham Players' website below.

For more information, please visit the Audition page on our website.

Limited to 12 Students


Theater Creations 2022




Calling all 7- to 10-year-olds who love performing! Come and be part of The Chatham Community Players THEATER CREATIONS.

Camp runs Monday through Friday, 9 am to 11:30 am, August 15 thru August 26
The two-week camp is only $325 per person!

Young actors will learn the fundamentals of acting onstage while using their imaginations and artistic creativity to develop their very own play! Through various games and exercises, kids will also learn about different theatrical elements and how they are used to shape a performance.

An original script will be created using the kids' chosen storyline and characters. This work will be rehearsed and ultimately presented on the Chatham Playhouse stage in a full performance with no scripts in hand for family and friends.

Price includes a copy of the final show and a Theater Creations T-shirt.
