🎭 A Christmas Carol
Young Ensemble Returns!



It’s that time of year again! McCarter’s Young Ensemble, a talented group of actors aged 8-14, is back for our annual production of A Christmas Carol. This year, auditions took an exciting twist as we visited Trenton’s Sprout U School of the Arts, a local nonprofit empowering young artists. Their Executive Director, Danielle
Miller-Winrow, had this to say about the experience:

“Having McCarter Theatre visit our school for auditions was a true honor. Our students received valuable insight into the world of professional theater. The memories created on that day will forever hold a special place in our hearts.”
