Seeking the following roles:
SANTA CLAUS (male) -At first glance, he’s the jolly, bearded gent of yore with a belly full of jelly. But he’s now at a turning point: after a century in the sleigh, he doesn’t quite have the passion for the grind he once did. Might it be time to pass the reins?
MRS. CLAUS (female) -The bespectacled, white-haired matron of The North Pole, she’s always been satisfied as the “woman behind the Big Man.” When she’s forced to step up and save Christmas, she realizes she likes calling the shots! And she’s great at it.
STRONG POP/ROCK BELT
JACK (male, 20s/30s)- Ambitious. Charismatic. Cynical. Great hair. With a chip on his shoulder, Jack is a high-powered advertising executive gunning for his next score. Smooth with the ladies and emotionally distant, he’s not the guy you’d peg to don a red velvet suit and pass out toys to girls and boys. (Must be good dancer)
TOPHER (male, 20s/30s)- Unflinchingly kind and warmhearted. Almost “too nice,” Topher runs Kringlez Kidz, a children’s charity. If Santa were a socially awkward young professional in mid-century Manhattan, this jovial square is how you’d imagine him.
RHUBARB (female, ageless)- Santa’s no-nonsense, upbeat Head Elf with an aggressively “cheerful” demeanor. Loves Christmas with a chipper, adorable intensity heretofore unknown in the mortal world.
ENSEMBLE: The ensemble plays a number of roles, including various children, diner denizens, a sparkle of elves (including Cinnamon, Juniper, Gingersnap, Glitterpants, Becky and others), Annie, Beverly, Carol, Hildy, Chester, Operator, bar patrons, Naughty Girl, Accountant Elf, Postmaster Elf, Santa’s Workshop Elf, Air Traffic Control Elf, Rusty (The Coal Miner Elf), Mrs. Callaway, Businessman, Kringlez Kidz Dancers, partygoers, security guards and others.
