Help Us Raise Funds for A CHRISTMAS CAROL!

Cast of “A Christmas Carol”. Screen shot by Laura Dittmann, 2018.

Work has begun on the Three Ships Collective’s remount of A Christmas Carol, supported by us, running Dec 1-22 at the Campbell House Museum (tickets will be on sale soon – stay tuned!). Last year’s inaugural production was an entirely self-funded labour of love, and although we are delighted to be heeding the many enthusiastic calls for its return, our goal is to build a more sustainable financial framework around this year’s production so that we are able to present the highest quality of work possible, while also ensuring that our production remains accessible to audience members of all socio-economic backgrounds. We are accepting donations from now until the end of the production’s run. Donate today on our GoFundMe page, and help us make our ambitious plans for this remount a reality!

Work With Us!

The Three Ships Collective, with the support of Soup Can Theatre, is hiring a Stage Manager and a Costume/Prop Designer for our upcoming production of A CHRISTMAS CAROL; a site-specific adaptation running in December at the Campbell House Museum. This is a remount of our 2018 production, which enjoyed a completely sold old run and glowing reviews from the press and public alike. The production also received 3 nominations in My Entertainment World’s 2018 Critics Pick Awards (Outstanding Lead Actor in a Play, Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Play, Outstanding Direction), with actor Thomas Gough winning the Lead Actor award for his performance as Scrooge. This adaptation was written by Justin Haigh, directed by Sarah Thorpe, and musical directed by Pratik Gandhi, all of whom are returning for this remount. Audiences will follow the characters throughout all three floors of Campbell House. Please note that the top floors and basement are accessible by stairs only. There is a ramp leading to the back door that provides access to the main floor.

Schedule: Rehearsals will be held in Toronto, beginning the week of October 20 and held 3x per week. The schedule will be created based on the availability of the Actors, Stage Manager, and Director.

The performance runs approximately 85-90 mins, with 2 performances per night, totaling 36 performances. On weeknights and Saturdays, the performances are at 7pm and 9pm. On Sundays, the performances are at 5pm and 7pm. Strike will be held following the final performance on Dec 22nd.

Costume/Prop Info: We are currently seeking out costume and prop sponsorships from local rental houses so that all of those materials can come from just one or two sources for the sake of efficiency. The time period of the production ranges from the 1790s-1850s. The cast size is 16, including 2 child actors who share the roles of Tiny Tim and Little Ebenezer and alternate performance nights. With the exception of the actors who play Scrooge and Marley, all actors play 2-3 different characters. The Costume/Prop Designer will also be responsible for costume fittings and alterations; basic to moderate sewing and alterations skills are a requirement.

Contract & Compensation: We will operate under the CAEA’s Artists Collective Policy, with a guaranteed minimum fee of $400 before profit share. Apart from ticket sales, the additional revenue sources we are exploring include government grants, a crowd-funding campaign, and reaching out to potential private financial sponsors.

Anti-Harassment Policy: The Three Ships Collective and Soup Can Theatre are committed to fostering a creative and collaborative environment free of harassment and discrimination where all artists and associates are treated with dignity and respect. We do not tolerate harassment of any kind; including, but not limited to, harassment based on race, national or ethnic origin, religion, age, gender identity, sexual orientation, marital status, family status, or disability.

Submission Instructions: Please send a resume and references to ThreeShipsCollective@gmail.com by Monday September 9. We are actively interested in submissions from artists from diverse cultural and ethnic backgrounds, all gender identities and expressions, and all abilities. If you have any questions about the project that would affect your interest, please don’t hesitate to get in touch. While we thank all applicants for their interest, only those selected for an interview will be contacted after Sept 9.
