Area Community Theatre in Tomah will conduct auditions for the holiday show The Gift of the Magi: The Musical. Tryouts will be held in the Cabaret Room at the theater on Sept. 14-15 at 6 p.m. If call backs are necessary, they will be held Sept. 17.
Director Steve Jones is looking five to six males and five to six females. There are also two parts designed specifically for a young boy and a young girl from the ages of 7-12. Some of the actors who have been cast will also be one of the carolers during the musical numbers.
Auditioners will be asked to sing all or part of a song of their choice a capella.
The Gift of The Magi is written by O'Henry and tells the poignant story of two young, impoverished newly-weds, Jim and Della Dillingham of New York City, in the early 1900. They find themselves on their first Christmas Eve together as husband and wife with no Christmas presents to share and little money to purchase that special gift each wants to buy for the other.
Show dates are Dec. 2-5 and Dec. 9-12.
