WTC holds auditions for winter play

Print Article

The Whitefish Theatre Co. is holding auditions for a winter production of “A Miracle on 34th Street” on Sept. 17 and 18 at 6 p.m. at the O’Shaughnessy Center in Whitefish.

Enter on the north side of the building at the door near the back of the parking lot. Please arrive early to fill out an audition application and review the script.

“A Miracle on 34th Street” is a joyous, heart-warming show that is pure family entertainment. The holiday season is in full swing when a gentleman with twinkling eyes, an ample belly, and a snowy beard is hired as Santa at a Macy’s department store. He claims his name is Kris Kringle and he soon fills everyone with Christmas spirit ... except his boss, Doris Walker. But when Kringle is declared insane and put on trial, everyone’s faith is put to the test as young and old alike face the age-old question: Do you believe in Santa Claus? Adapted from the cherished 1947 film, “A Miracle on 34th Street” promises to bring the joy and true magic of the holiday season to the stage.

Valeri McGarvey is the director of this production. The cast will be composed of 30 to 40 people. Adults of all ages are encouraged to audition, along with youth that are 7 years old or older. No experience is necessary and no preparation is required for the audition.

Rehearsals will begin the week of Oct. 16 for a total time commitment of eight weeks. There are nine performances over two weekends on Dec. 7-10 and 15-17. Instead of running this show over three weekends as WTC has done in the past, there will two shows (a matinee and evening performance) on Saturdays of each show weekend.

For more information, call the Whitefish Theatre Company at 862-5371.
