Auditions for Raks Nativity are scheduled for September 11th at Third Life Studio in Union Square, Somerville. We are casting for a wide variety of roles for both men and women.. Some roles are mainly character roles while others are mainly dancing. There is only one speaking role - narrator. Performers will not be paid as the events proceeds will be donated to our charity, Cradles to Crayons.

Performers auditioning for a dance role will be taught short combinations - Please come prepared to dance. There is no need to bring a prepared piece. If you are auditioning for a dance role. If auditioning as narrator, we will provide a script to read in lieu of dance. People auditioning for character roles will rehearse a short scene and may be asked to do some character development exercises.

Categories of Roles and Schedule:
Village Entertainer (bring your talent - snake charming, juggling, contortionist, balancing acts - may be a dance role but need not be - imagine you are a street performer in ancient Bethlehem). Contact Nepenthe in advance if you’re interested. 2:30 - 3pm

Character roles (non-speaking / non-dancing) 3-5
