Auditions for our Winter Show!
Community Players of Southwestern Wisconsin has
announced their Winter show, The Gift of The Magi based on the short story by O.
Henry and adapted for the stage by Jon Jory. Auditions will be held at the
Downtown Auditorium in Richland Center, Wisconsin on Thursday October 13th from
6pm-9pm and Friday October 14th from 6pm-9pm. In this warm-hearted Christmas
story Della and Jim eagerly await their first Christmas together as a married
couple. Times are hard, and both Della and Jim find themselves lacking money to
buy each other a proper Christmas gift. In a strange twist of fate, the two end
up finding the perfect gifts for one another- but at an unexpected cost. Though
they may not have the perfect Christmas, the couple
learns about the importance of the gift of love in this Christmas classic. This
adaptation includes Christmas carolers that will sing in between scenes. There
are 6 speaking parts for females age 16 and up and 4 speaking parts for males
age 16 and up. There are also speaking roles for males or females for our
narrators. We also would like 5 or more strong singers for our carolers age 13
and up. Carolers will only have to rehearse once or twice a week depending on
Auditioners will be
asked to read from the script if they are auditioning for a speaking part, and
sing if they are auditioning to be carolers. If you have any questions or if you
would like to help back stage please contact our Director Paul Carlson at
