The Off Broadway Theatre & Laughing Stock Improv
The Off Broadway Theatre is holding a Virtual Audition for our Christmas Production called “Muffets Christmas Carol” which will be running this November!
This timeless story is presented by Little Miss Muffet and features life-size puppets who walk, talk, and present a classic story of redemption, forgiveness, and super-scary ghosts. The miserly Scrooge endures several spectral visitations that remind him of the errors and evil ways of his lonely life. This lighthearted comedy will get you into the Christmas spirit while making you laugh out loud in the process. Come enjoy this time-honored classic with the entire family!
