With everyone streaming shows now, Charlie Brown is having an existential crisis (again): no one is watching his show anymore. He and Linus set off on a quest to discover the true meaning of the holidays, and discover the cast of Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer in a similar spot. Can these two TV classics join up and save the holiday TV specials?

An original panto Written by Steve Noll and Directed by Heidi Hakseth & Maddie Dooher. Running Dec 15-Dec 30, 2023 at the Bartell Theatre.

Auditions will start at 7pm each night and will consist of cold-reads from script, comedy improv, singing, and/or dancing. Dress to move and bring water. As this is a panto, you may be cast in a role different from your gender. All roles are open to all, including any ethnicity and gender expression. Actors under age 18 must be accompanied by their parent/guardian. Please prepare 30 seconds or 16 measures of an acapella Holiday/Winter song.
