AUDITION: STAR WARD CHRISTMAS

Wanted: Adults and children, all ages, sizes, and types. All parts are open.

Description: At the Off Broadway Theatre, we are constantly criticized for not having enough intergalactic Christmas shows with a Mormon-based theme. Unfortunately, Santa meets the Mormon Martian Missionaries just didn’t sell. But this year, we silence all of our critics with our holiday show, Star Ward Christmas. This amazing musical parody takes characters from last year’s very successful Star Ward and mixes them with current sci-fi characters, so that they can save Christmas from the dork side. Happy Holidays and may the Farce be with you! Written by Austinn and Eric Jensen. Directed by Chase Dickerson.

Rehearsal Dates: October 7th to November 16th, Tuesday and Thursday nights from 6:30 to 9:30 PM, and Saturdays from 10 AM to 2 PM. Tech week is November 13th to the 16th, with rehearsals every weeknight from 6:30 to 10 PM. Children will be double-cast and have a shorter rehearsal schedule TBD.

Performance Dates: November 17th to December 23rd, Mondays, Fridays, and Saturdays at 7:30 PM. No performance on November 20th. One 2 PM Saturday matinee will be announced during rehearsals. Children will split performances.

Payment: $50 stipend plus free passes (10 for adults, 6 for children).

Preparation: For adults, please bring a headshot and resume, and come prepared to deliver a one minute monologue and to sing at least 16 bars a cappella of your favorite song. For children and adults, you may be asked to tell a short joke and to do a cold reading of selected scenes.
