TOSAC’s Christmas Tradition!
Auditions will be held at TOSAC’s Storefront Theater on Sunday, October 31th from 2:00 pm to 5:00 pm.
Directed by Kimsey Hodge, this hilarious Christmas classic is one of pure chaos and enjoyment! A couple struggling to put on a church Christmas pageant is faced with casting the Herdman kids–probably the most inventively awful kids in history. You won’t believe the mayhem – and the fun – when the Herdmans collide with the Christmas story head on!
This delightful comedy is adapted from the best-selling Young Adult book, and has become a holiday staple for groups across the United States! Features plenty of great roles for children and adults, a few favorite Christmas Carols, and a lot of laughs!
Show Dates in December over two weekends on the 11th, 12th, 17th, 18th and 19th.
