Auditions: Yes Virginia, there is a Santa Claus

Yes Virginia, There is a Santa Claus

Written by Andrew J. Fenady 
Based upon the teleplay by Val DeCrow and Andrew J. Fenady
Directed by Adrienne Steer

When 8-year old Virginia O'Hanlon wrote to the editor of the New York Sun, she was looking for something to believe in. When Ed Mitchell assigned the task of answering the letter to Frank Church, he knew that Church too needed something to believe in, after losing his wife and child last Christmas Eve. This Christmas, let this moving family drama remind you of the joy of the season, the beauty of life and the power of belief.

Where: Kitchener Waterloo Little Theatre

When: September 1-3, 7PM‐10PM. You only need to attend one night, and will likely be there for around an hour.

You will be asked to present your monologue (either one you have prepared or one of the selection available there) and you may be asked to read from the script and/or do some improv exercises.

Musicians: Yes, Virginia is also looking for a musician to be part of the cast and to adapt and play scene change and incidental music. Looking for 1900's style, with preference given to violin or accordion. Think of an Irish father sitting around with his family in the evening.
