Additional auditions will be held on Sunday, September 20 at 6 pm.

Drama by Michael Wilson. Directed by Greg Anderson.
Produced by special arrangement with Dramatists Play Service.

This theatrical and spirited version of A Christmas Carol puts the phantasmagoric qualities of Charles Dickens’ classic tale center stage. A swirling, dancing chorus of ghosts that weave through this uplifting holiday story of redemption, magic, and hope.

The Cratchit family, preparing for a hearty Christmas in spite of their poverty, is dismayed to learn that their father will have to work on Christmas Day, as his employer, Mr. Scrooge, is mean and miserly. On Christmas Eve, after Scrooge dismisses Charchit with savage ill humor and locks up for the night, his dead partner’s ghost undertakes to show him the error of his ways. When Christmas Day dawns, Scrooge is a changed man and with new joy goes about making amends for his grouchy ways.

Al and Wizzers daily ritual – shooting the bull about sports, women loved and lost and the many annoyances of aging – are suddenly shaken up by the appearance of a friendly young woman and her flirty mom. Wizzer pep-talks lonely widower Al to convince him to break out of his self-imposed “quantum of solace” and maybe find love again, while also dealing with his own fear of ending up in the memory care unit at their assisted living facility.

A tribute to the early years of the twentieth century when silent movies mesmerized and enthralled avid theater audiences. As a building owner and realtor discuss plans to convert an old building, formerly a silent movie studio, into commercial space, ghostly visages of the stars of silent screen who have been living there reveal themselves to the audience. After discouraging a number of potential renters, the stars seek out a team who are attempting to have the building declared an historic site.

For as long as they can remember, Alex and his friends Matt, Chad, and Chelsea have spent Friday nights fighting the undead, casting spells, and rescuing fair maidens with the roll of the dice, a little luck, and a lot of imagination.  This week they have invited a new player, Eddie, to join them. Because it’s his first time playing, he has a lot of questions through which audience members with no gaming experience can understand the action and enjoy the imagined scene that is actually a part of a fantasy role-playing game.  The teens’ goal is to return the “Talisman of Fair Winds” to a desperate village, but they are met with constant frustrations, humorous side quests, and the threat of the all-powerful necromancer! As the action unfolds on stage, the four players (with the guidance of their creative gamemaster) seek adventure in the form of an ogre, a healer, a wizard and an assassin.  But will the dice be kind, or will the teens find their own graves at the end of this quest?
