Auditions for A Christmas Story

Sandy, Artie and the audition panel thank every one who came out to audition. We still need RANDY and could use a few more friends for walk-on, non-speaking roles.

Remember even if you have a role with ANNIE Jr. that our rehearsals start in September, allowing you to be in both plays.

Special Note: Audition even if you are little older than the preferred ages of 9 and 10. We’ll do our best not to exclude anyone from getting a role.
