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 schedules.

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 or 608-604-1129.
