 College sets open auditions for annual Christmas show

PASADENA, Texas — San Jacinto College Central’s theatre and film department will hold open public auditions for adults and children to be cast in the annual holiday production “Santa’s Christmas Magic: The Musical.”

Auditions will be held Monday, Oct. 10 and Tuesday, Oct. 11 at 7 p.m., in the Powell Arena Theatre on the Central campus, located at 8060 Spencer Hwy. in Pasadena.

The auditions are open for anyone in the community and enrollment at the College is not required. “Anyone interested in acting, those who have little or no experience, or those who are seasoned professional, may audition for the show,” commented Dr. Jerry Ivins, Central campus theatre department chair. “There is even an entire elf chorus of children ages 5 and up that will be cast in mid-November. All are encouraged to come out and audition for this increasingly popular event.”

“Santa’s Christmas Magic: The Musical” is a fantasy about a sinister plot to steal Santa’s magic. The cast will include 30 male and female actors, singers and dancers from ages 5 to adult.

Rehearsals for the holiday show will begin on Oct. 24 and will continue Monday through Friday until the show opens on Dec. 1. For more information about the rehearsals or the play, please call 281-542-2039, or e-mail
