Bumbles’ Big Christmas Adventure – AUDITIONS
We are looking for performers for our upcoming production of Ingrid Hansen Smythe’s Bumbles’ Big Christmas Adventure, produced in partnership with Bert Church Theatre in Airdrie.
It’s an exciting time in Santa’s workshop as the elves get ready for Christmas day. Bumbles – the happy, snappy, never-nappy elf – is especially excited as he helps to make the toys and clean the workshop in preparation for Santa’s big arrival. It’s a thrill for elves and children alike when Santa arrives, and all is well until that fateful moment when Santa entrusts Bumbles with the all-important jar of Christmas magic. When everything goes awry it appears that Christmas is doomed, but Santa has confidence in Bumbles’ ability to fix his mistake. The question is, can Bumbles get the magic back in time to save Christmas? Join Santa and his elves (plus the Easter Bunny and Tooth Fairy!) for a gripping adventure, in which Bumbles learns that the key to big success is found in just one little word – persist!

(Actors ages 10 and up are invited to audition)
