Christmas is getting closer and Prattville’s Way Off Broadway Theatre is gearing up for their holiday performances. WOBT is proud to present two plays this year, A Laura Ingalls Wilder Christmas and The Mice and The Manger. These two plays will be performed back to back. Performances will be two weekends, December 8-11 and December 15-18.
Auditions are set for, Sunday, September 25, and Monday, September 26, from 7:30-9:00 p.m. at the Prattville Cultural Arts Building in the Way Off Broadway Theatre.
The Mice and The Manager, by Karen Jones through Pioneer Publishing, will have a cast of eight children, with parts for four boys and four girls of any age. This play is about the greatest story ever told, only you’ve never heard it told this way before! The traditional Nativity scene plays out as you would expect, but it happens through the eyes of the mice who were there on that very first Christmas. Witness the story of the Christ child’s birth from a whole new perspective.
A Laura Ingalls Wilder Christmas, by Laura Brooks through Dramatic Publishing, will have a cast: of two males (a boy ages 6-12 and a man ages 30-50) and five females (three girls ages 6-14 and two women ages 30-50). This story is told with period songs, humor and depth of character, and tells a story of “healing that celebrates the importance of enduring family bonds.”
