A Christmas Carol meets The Government Inspector meets Noises Off in this hilarious hit from Seattle. A man who asks to audition at a small theater is mistaken for an informer for the National Endowment for the Arts. Everyone caters to the bewildered wannabe actor, and he is given a role in the current production, A Christmas Carol. Everything goes wrong and hilarity is piled upon hilarity. Perfect anytime, this delight is particularly appropriate at Christmas.

Roles to be cast: 

4f, 8m. ​


Zorah Bloch - Founding director of the The Soapbox Playhouse. In her 40's. Extremely self-concerned.


Sidney Carlton - In his 60's. A ​founding member of the Company. Kind but somewhat addled.


Dorothy Tree Hapgood - Sidney Carlton's wife. In her 60's. English and unable to lose her accent. A founding member.


Larry Vauxhall - In his 40's. Tough, intellectually vain child of the 60's, still looking for a turn-on. A founding member.


Phil Hewlitt - In his 40's. Small, obsessive - usually plays the ineffectual character in any Soapbox production. A founding member.


Walter E. Parsons - African-American in his 30's. Recently taken up acting again after a stint in the armed forces. Good natured, excitable.


Luther Beatty - A large eleven year old. He's been playing Tiny Tim two years too long. Extremely friendly.


Kevin Emery - A nervous man in the impossible position of managing director. In his 40's. Afraid of Zorah.


M.J. (Mary Jane) McCann - In her late 40's. A realist. She long ago realized the Company has hit bottom. She looks on now as a bemused observer. Founding member.


Betty Andrews - In her 40's. An inspector for the National Endowment for the Arts. A forbidding appearance. Bright red hair.


Bart Frances - A pleasant youth. Dresses in motorcycle jacket and torn jeans.


Wayne Wellacre - In his 30's, in search of a new career in acting. No training, less talent, affable, eager to please.
