Village Theatre Troupe Seeks Kids & Adults for Holiday Show
Posted on 09/26/2014

The Village of Orland Park Theatre Troupe is holding auditions for its holiday show, “The Rented Christmas,” on Monday, October 6 and Tuesday, October 7 from 7 p.m. to 10 p.m. Auditions are held at Orland Park’s Old Village Hall, 14413 South Beacon Avenue.

“Each year, we like to help people get into the holiday spirit with our Christmas show,” said Resident Producer/Director Frann Carnivele. “This is a sweet story that is perfect for the holiday season.”

John Dale hasn’t enjoyed a real Christmas for years so he decides to rent one. The owner of the local rental agency is flustered with the requirements that include a tree with presents, carols, a wife and five children. This show is based on the short story by J. Lillian Vandervere.

Children, age eight and older, and adults are invited to audition for the show that will be performed in mid-December. Rehearsals will be Monday and Thursday evenings and Sunday afternoons.

The cast calls for seven adults, four children with speaking roles ages six, eight, 13 and 16. An ensemble of orphans will also be casted.

Readings will be from the script. Once cast, participants must pay a $35.00 registration fee. For more information, call the Village of Orland Park Recreation Department at 708/403-PARK.
