Auditions for PAG’s A Christmas Story are Aug. 9-10

MT. MORRIS — The Performing Arts Guild will hold auditions for its fall performance of A Christmas Story on Tuesday and Wednesday, Aug. 9 and 10 from 6:30-8 p.m. at the Pinecrest Grove Library, 500 Evergreen Lane, Mt. Morris.

The cast consists of two men, two women, five boys and two girls.

Performances will be Friday, Saturday and Sunday, Nov. 4-6 and Nov. 11-13 at the Pinecrest Grove Theatre.

This beloved holiday story is humorist Jean Shepherd’s memoir of growing up in the Midwest in the 1940s which follows 9-year old Ralphie Parker in his quest to get a genuine Red Ryder BB gun under the tree for Christmas.

All of the elements from the well-known motion picture will be in this performance.

Materials will be provided at the audition, so those interested in auditioning should come early to review the readings.
