🎭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.”
