New Edgecliff Theatre will hold auditions for their upcoming production of THE SANTALAND DIARIES on Sunday September 20 from 3:00 to 5:00 at Urban Artifact, 1660 Blue Rock St, Cincinnati, OH 45223. The production is directed by Missy Whitis and will run December 3 through 19.
We are casting the role of Crumpet. Out of work, our slacker decides to become a Macy’s elf during the holiday crunch. At first the job is simply humiliating, but once the thousands of visitors start pouring through Santa’s workshop, he becomes battle weary and bitter. Taking consolation in the fact that some of the other elves were television extras on One Life to Live, he grins and bears it, occasionally taking out his frustrations on the children and parents alike. The piece ends with yet another Santa being ushered into the workshop, but this one is different from the lecherous or drunken ones with whom he has had to work. This Santa actually seems to care about and love the children who come to see him, startling our hero into an uncharacteristic moment of goodwill just before his employment runs out.
