Dashing Through the Snow Auditions
Directed by Anne Johnson. In the tiny town of Tinsel, Texas, a colorful parade of eccentric guests arrive at the Snowflake Inn. Tina, the innkeeper, has more than she can handle coping with these nuttier-than-a fruitcake lodgers. Hoyt and his sister try to end a 30-year feud between their aunts, Ainsley and Lenora, actors from a lower-than-low-budget touring production of A CHRISTMAS CAROL, come to fulfill a promise. Add a romantic rendezvous between Mrs. Claus and one of Santa’s elves, a demanding guest who refuses to leave, a tipsy housekeeper, and a spur of the moment Christmas Eve wedding that brings together the Futrelle sisters and their best friend, Raynerd, and you have a delightfully funny show for the season.
Show runs November 5-21, 2021
