Rosebud Children’s and Community Theatre

Rosebud Children’s and Community Theatre invites kids and adults to audition for the hilariously classic holiday play, “A Christmas Story.”

Humorist Jean Shepherd’s memoir of growing up in the Midwest in the 1940s follows 9-year-old Ralphie Parker in his quest to get a genuine Red Ryder BB gun under the tree for Christmas. Ralphie pleads his case before his mother, his teacher and even Santa Claus himself at Higbee’s Department Store. The consistent response: “You’ll shoot your eye out!” All the elements from the beloved motion picture are here, including the family’s temperamental exploding furnace; Scut Farkas, the school bully; the boys’ experiment with a wet tongue on a cold lamppost; the Little Orphan Annie decoder pin; Ralphie’s father winning a lamp shaped like a woman’s leg in a net stocking; Ralphie’s fantasy scenarios and more.

Auditions are being accepted electronically on flipgrid. The link is on the website www.rosebudctc.org. Auditions are due by Sept. 21. Rehearsals begin Sept 28. Performances are Dec. 3-5 and Dec. 8-10.

For more information and to access the flipgrid link, visit www.rosebudctc.org.
