Seeking engaging, confident and outgoing youth actors perform in the professional production of A Christmas Story the Musical at Suncoast Broadway Dinner Theatre in Hudson, FL. Actors will
be expected to sing, dance, and tap dance within the production. High levels of training are a bonus but not a necessity. Actors must be able to take direction and have a willingness to learn and try new things.

Synopsis: This classic holiday tale centers on a mischievous, bespectacled boy, Ralphie, who dreams of getting a BB-gun for Christmas. In the weeks before the big holiday, Ralphie, his friends, and his family get into all kinds of situations: including run-ins with a bully with “yellow eyes,” a tongue stuck to a flag pole, a bar of soap in the mouth, a garish leg lamp, a major award and a Chinese Christmas dinner. Based on the humorist Jean Shepherd’s novel “In God We Trust, All Others Pay Cash,” this is a tribute to the Original, Traditional, One-Hundred-Percent, Red-Blooded, Two-Fisted, All-American Christmas.
