UPCOMING AUDITIONS

It Happened One Christmas

Auditions for It Happened One Christmas will be held on Friday, August 21st, 2015 from 12:00-4:00 p.m.  

It Happened One Christmas is a new concert-musical revue being created by Karen Azenberg and Kenneth Jones specifically for the Pioneer Theatre audience. Set in an abandoned vaudeville theatre in downtown Salt Lake City, we learn of a (fictitious) legend that says if Salt Lake City has snow on Christmas, it's because of what happens in that theatre. They say that every Christmas Eve, ever since this theatre shut down, the Ghosts of Past Shows reappear here for a midnight frolic - a revue, a concert - to relive their heyday, to celebrate the season and to urge Father Christmas to cover the world with snow. If Santa Claus approves of this show, the city gets some of that fabled white stuff. The evening will be comprised of traditional songs, with less traditional arrangements, musical theatre and pop favorites, dance, spoken word segments - and who knows what else - we are still creating this thing!

First rehearsal begins November 9, 2015, and the performance dates are December 4 - December 19, 2015. Directed and Choreographed by Karen Azenberg. Tom Griffin is Musical Director.
