For all the young stars looking to have a once in a lifetime theatrical experience…ON LOCATION!

This is Environmental Theater at its very core. With the Colorado Railroad Museum as our background and their 1880’s Steam Locomotive Engine pulling vintage railcars around the Museum grounds, you will be part of a historic event. Join us as we bring this magical tale to life, a Holiday Gift that will last a lifetime.

We will be casting 24-30 roles for Chris VanAllsburg’s classic tale…”The Polar Express.”

This Warner Brothers produced movie, which starred Tom Hanks, has become a Holiday favorite. This Holiday you can help create the magic at the Colorado Railroad Museum in Golden, CO. Over 10,000 visitors are expected to experience this fantastic production. Don’t miss your opportunity to be the first to perform in Denver’s premiere of “The Polar Express.”

This is an ensemble cast and it is a volunteer position with the exception of a few roles as designated below. The rehearsal commitment is moderate, the performance commitment is significant.

If you are interested please send your electronic head shot and resume to the producing company, FEHU Productions, Inc. The email address is: rickbernstein@fehuproductions.com. Auditions will be held July 12, 2014 at the Colorado Railroad Museum from 10:00am until 4:00pm.
