Auditions for our family-friendly holiday show are this upcoming Sunday & Monday (Aug 11 & 12) at 6:30PM at the Elkader Opera House. Read more below for a synopsis of the show and characters! Hope to see you there!
Mix together a batch of fruitcakes, three dozen Christmas trees, 10,000 outdoor Christmas lights, two southern spinsters, an estranged old man, a lost cat named Tutti Frutti and a Christmas hog named Buster and you've got the recipe for a fun-filled and touching evening of holiday cheer.
Into this world comes Jamie, a kid who has run away from home and come as far as his/her money will take him/her. At first, Jamie thinks this town's inhabitants are "nuttier than fruitcakes," but soon comes to admire, appreciate and adore the nutty little town. A moving story of alienation, understanding and reconciliation, FrUiTCaKeS is a heaping helping of holiday warmth and Christmas cheer.
This show has parts for 4 men, 4 women, 6 boys and 7 girls. (Numbers & genders could change a bit!) We would like to encourage people of all ages to come audition! This is a play, so no musical ability necessary! Rehearsals will run mid-October through the performances which are the first two weekends in December!
