Description:

Auditions For “Twas The Land Of The Night Before” holiday family musical. Seeking actors. Please see the breakdown below. About the project: "Twas The Land Of The Night Before is a heartwarming musical family comedy about an enchanting village where everyone enthusiastically prepares for the holiday morning – all the time. Exchanging presents but never opening them, decorating and undecorating the tree, it’s all part of their simple and content daily life. Until one day, when a likeable bumbling soul wanders into the town and promises everyone he can show them all about the holiday. Along the way, Yule and his faithful sidekick Satchel, meet the various townsfolk including the Mayor, Toymaker, Ribbon Meister, a generous family, and Aristotle and Einstein, the town simpletons. Everyone loves Yule (even when he keeps doing things all wrong) and is excited about the promises he brings, except for the Teacher, who wants things to stay just the way they are – she just doesn’t trust Yule, and what he is trying to do." Additional info: Most roles are not gender or age specific. Please prepare 16 bars of an upbeat holiday song. Please bring sheet music for the accompanist. There will also be readings from the script. Production dates will be December 9 – 11 and 16 – 18. Rehearsals will be dependent upon cast availability but will likely include 2 weeknights and Sunday (probably late afternoon or late morning) in several locations.
