ROLES:
Looking for four actors to fill the "ACTOR" slots below. Note: Some of the "ACTOR" categories have two characters.
Ages are suggested by the script and director. The director will cast actors who can believably play the ages suggested.

The roles of Britannia, Mulch, and Calliope have been cast.

ACTOR #1:
UNCLE BRIERLY (50s – 60s): A bit of a portly man with a hearty laugh and a charming smile. Brierly is the kind of man who is everyone’s uncle and is just the kind of man you want to be around at Christmas time. The actor playing Brierly will also play Sir Guy of Gisbourne.
SIR GUY OF GISBOURNE: An ex-elf who is too wicked for the North Pole to handle. "The fallen Angel."

ACTOR #2:
EMILY (10 – 15): A little girl with a zest for living. Her passion, energy, and playful nature shine brightly, making her the perfect addition to a Christmas family. Casting Note: We will consider teenagers and young adults.

ACTOR #3:
AMOS (10 – 15): A mouse who is calm, cool and collected... on the surface! Underneath, he is the embodiment of a nervous mouse. The actor playing Amos will also play Amos of Kansas. Casting Note: We will consider teenagers and young adults.
AMOS OF KANSAS: The Western twin of Amos. He is philosophical and very relaxed.

ACTOR #4:
WENDELL SNEED (20s – 40s): A wacky friend of Uncle Brierly’s. The ideal candidate will be able to experiment with different dialects.
SANTA CLAUS needs no explanation!
