This Production is fun for all ages.

Our goal is to not only foster the development of beginning artists but also to excite a young generation into becoming life long patrons of the arts.

The Adventure of Frosty the Snowman
Karen has her eyes set on winning the Santa Claus Extravaganza but only her nerves and lack of self- confidence stand in her way. With the help of her friends, Frosty, the lovable snowman and Jingle Belz, one of Santa’s favorite elves, she may be able to make her dreams come true.
But she is not the only person who is looking for the prize at the Extravaganza, so is Professor Hunkle and his niece, Mary. Who knows that they are willing to do to be the person who wins?

ROLES
PROFESSOR HINKLE is a magician and toy maker who is trying to make his fortune. He loves doing magic tricks but he is not very good. Things like pulling a mackerel out of his hat rather than a rabbit. The performer needs to be able to do a variety of magic tricks some successful but some bad.

MARY HINKLE is Professor Hinkle’s niece. She is an orphan her parents were killed in a car accident and lives with he uncle but he is too busy with his work to really pay much attention to her so she tries to find ways to make him notice her. She is jealous of Karen and tries to steal the snow seeds for her uncle so that he might be successful in the Santa Claus Spectacular.

JINGLE BELZ is one of Santa’s favorite elves. He has a great personality and is the Ryan Seacrest of the North Pole. He is also the keeper of the snow seeds. He is good friends with Frosty. They met after that first year when Frosty came to the North Pole after being awakened by the magic hat. He introduced Frosty to the snow seeds, which help to keep him from melting when he is away from the cold of the North Pole. He is the announcer for the Santa Claus Spectacular.

KAREN JONES is the young girl who helped Frosty find his way to the North Pole. She is now a young woman who has big plans for her life but she does not have a lot of support. She wants to be a teacher and teach music but doesn’t have the money to support herself and if she wins this contest will be able to put herself through school so that she can help others do what she has always wanted to do… sing. She thinks that Frosty is helping her be a better performer by sprinkling her with snow seeds… in reality she has lots of talent just not much confidence.

FROSTY THE SNOWMAN is a very happy soul, with a corncob pipe and a button nose and two eyes made out of coal. He is everyone’s friend and is always there to lend a hand. He is Karen’s friend and is trying to support her in her performance. He knows she has lots of talent she just needs to find the confidence.

Note all performers have to be comfortable singing and being able to move (dance).

Roles are not age specific but actors must be over 18.
