about the show

Jack Frost, who decorates windowpanes during the Christmas season, has his office atop the Smiles Department Store. He runs things in an old-fashioned way. He doesn’t even know what a credit card is! Enter Evilina of the Muggleworth Advertising Agency. Evilina attempts to force Jack into signing over his frost formula. She wants to forget about Christmas. When her original plot fails, Evilina steals the formula!
Act 2 features a holiday sing-a-long with the youth performers leading the audience in songs of the season. We’ll throw snow, wear antlers, and maybe even call upon a certain jolly man in red to join us! Songs will be assigned by the music director.

GOD OF CARNAGE AUDITIONS

Saturday, November 11th, 12noon to 3pm at the Krevsky Center

513 Hurlock Street, Harrisburg, PA 17110

Call backs: 7pm, Tuesday, November 14th

Rehearsals will be as follows:  To start, we will avoid Monday, Friday and Saturday evenings. Tues., Wed., and Thurs. evenings and Sundays (either afternoon or evening as cast availability permits) will be likely. We will add Monday evenings starting the second week in December. An occasional odd time may occur as we work to avoid conflicts while keeping the show “active” during the holidays. As a general rule, rehearsals will average four times weekly, moving to five times as we near production time.

ABOUT THE SHOW

Winner of the 2009 Tony Award for Best Play, God of Carnage relates an evening in the lives of two couples, residents of a Brooklyn neighborhood, who meet to discuss a playground fight between their children. The four of them agree to discuss the incident civilly, but, as the night wears on and drinks are imbibed, the polite veneer breaks down.
