Don’t be shy, you were born to be a star! Join us at open auditions for Exit Santa on October 27 & 28, 2019
It’s Christmas Eve and Santa has abandoned Mrs. Claus and the North Pole for a Florida condo and his mistress. But all is not as it appears in this madcap adult comedy that lampoons familiar stories even as it affirms the holiday spirit in us all.
Auditions will be held at 7:00 pm on Sunday & Monday, October 27 & 28, 2019, at the theater– 619 South Main Street in the Baird Hardware complex, next door to Akira Wood and across from Heartwood Soundstage.
No prepared monologues required– expect cold readings from a provided script.
Performance dates are Thursdays through Sundays, December 5 – 15, 2019
Santa Claus – The big guy himself, Kris Kringle
Dru – Santa’s wacky neighbor
Virginia – Santa’s sexy young mistress
Mrs. Claus – Santa’s wife
The Ghosts – Five spirits, all played by the same actor
Ages and genders are flexible, at the discretion of the director. All races, colors, sizes, genders, gender-identities and experience levels welcome! Although this IS an audition, we’re not judgmental, and we hope you feel welcome here and have a great time. If cast you will be compensated by the roar of applause and the joy of being part of the Acrosstown family.
We look forward to seeing you at auditions for Exit Santa!
About the ART:
Founded in 1980, the ART develops new talent, plays, audiences and ideas while also celebrating and revivifying the great plays of the past. The ART provides a safe place where people of all ages, genders, races, and beliefs can create unsafe theater– thinking people’s theatre– theater that transforms.
We continually respect, and challenge:
- ourselves as actors, designers, artists and visionaries to achieve more,
- our audiences as living, thinking and feeling human beings to engage more,
- other local theaters and arts organizations to collaborate more,
…and by doing so, help nurture and develop Gainesville, Florida into the center of arts and culture in North Central Florida.
As a 501c3 non-profit organization, the ART is especially dedicated to providing multi-cultural opportunities to the members of our community. The theater is open to all and presents experiences for which there are no other venues in the area. It is also entirely volunteer-staffed and operated.
