MIRACLE AT BAYOU BOWL takes place on the 24th of December 1959. One month after the poorest excuse for a hurricane “Mavis” had flooded the area around the Bayou Bowl. The whole town has been without power for weeks. So today, Christmas Eve, a lot is going on. Electricity will be turned on, there is a ceremony to honor Uncle Cletus (of all people) for bravery. The Christmas show which was canceled at the school is being performed here. Crazy Captain Aunt Addie is putting on a wildlife show with her “triplets” and a some unexpected guests also drop by. All the while, Bo Dupree is lost at sea and hopefully Aunt Maddie won’t put a curse on the whole thing. God help us!

Sunset Players is holing open auditions on:

  • Sunday, October 2 at 6:00pm
  • Tuesday, October 4th at 6:30 pm

The Arts Center at Dunham.
(Casting will be limited to young actors ages 8-18)

The children’s show at Sunset Players is a great way for children with little to no acting experience to gain some experience performing live theater.

The cast consists of 16-27 roles. Crew members and set builders are also needed. All ages and experience levels are welcome.

Actors must be able to read.

Auditions will consist of reading selections from the script.

As this show takes place during the school year, and during the holiday season, rehearsals are kept as short and few as possible and will be based upon the availability of those auditioning. Please be prepared to supply a list of any known conflicts from October through the close of the production.

If you are interested in auditioning and can’t make the two dates listed, please email the director Bob Kelley at or text him at 513.828.9839
