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.
