Area Community Theatre directors Steve Jones and Barb Sullivan are hosting auditions for A Good Old Fashioned, Redneck Country Christmas – the Musical by Kris Bauske on Monday, Aug. 19 and Tuesday, Aug. 20 beginning at 5:30 p.m. both evenings in Area Community Theatre’s Cabaret Room.
Parts are available for six men and four women ranging in age from late teens to late 60s. Those who audition will be asked to read from a script and sing a short unaccompanied piece of one to two minutes.
The play is set on Christmas Eve, and the girls at Lou’s Diner are both frazzled and furious. Not only is the Christmas baking not going well, but their men folk have decided to spend the day hunting, drinking beer and avoiding conflict at home. Bob, a stranded truck driver, is there to witness the drama and narrate the story, which includes music and a Christmas miracle.
Show dates are Dec. 5-8 and Dec. 12-15.
