Auditions Extended for Christmas By Committee: A Musical


Auditions: Monday, September 15th, 6pm at the Garden Theatre


An invited call only with callbacks that same night.


Please send your resume and headshot to or Emily Russell at If you have a video link of you performing that would be great but not necessary. We will contact you if we feel you are right for one of the roles.


All roles paid. Roles available for older actors. Diversity welcome! Looking for very strong singers and actors. It is a small cast, so all roles are featured with solo as well as ensemble work. All roles need to move well!


Here is who we are looking for (note - all of these roles are still open but we do have strong contenders for some):


GUS - 50s. Gruff but loveable. Strong actor. Singer. Baritone. (Ed Asner type)


FAYE - late 40s-50s. Christian. Proper but has an open mind. Just wants things the way they were. Alto. Strong singer/actress. (Olympia Dukakis type)


MARY - late 30s-40s. Crafty. Likes to stir the pot but isn't mean. Alto/second soprano. Strong singer/actress. (think Laurie Metcalf)


PATTY - late 20s-30s. Community theatre star. Dramatic yet there is a realness to her. Soprano/belt. Strong singer/actress. (Delta Burke type in personality and the flair for drama)


MACK - 30s-40s. Aspiring councilman. Business owner. Great heart and spirit. Looking to potentially cast as African American male. Bari/tenor. Strong actor/singer. (a younger Fred Willard - regardless of ethnicity)


AMY - mid 20s. Enthusiastic. Nervous. Wants to do a great job. Soprano/belt. Strong singer/actress



The annual Citrus Village Christmas show is in a slump. With just the right amount of spunk and holiday know-how, newcomer Amy may just have what it takes to get things back on track. But first she must convince the town’s quirky Christmas committee – a surly band of misfits – that the season is more than just personal agendas and citrus-themed activities. In an original world premiere musical overflowing with song, dance and laughs, our holiday heroine must come to the rescue before it’s too late! Performances of Christmas By Committee: A Musical are Fridays at 8pm, Saturdays at 2 & 8pm, and Sundays at 2pm, December 5– 21, 2014.
