Auditions for PAG Christmas Show

Bill Entwistle

The QC Performing Arts Guild (PAG) has been busily preparing for their annual Christmas Show, which will be performed on Dec. 9, 10, 11. Audition dates for the show are Sept. 19 and 20 from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. in the Clubhouse Ballroom. No preparations are required for auditions, as music and scripts will be provided. For further information, please call or text Bill Entwistle at 815-257-2279 or email [email protected]. If you are not a performer or singer, PAG is also looking for people to help behind-the-scenes with props, stage management, costumes, makeup, and more.

The show’s storyline is about a group of people getting stranded at O’Hare International Airport during a blizzard around Christmas. As the storyline opens, you will find that one of the couples who get stranded happens to have with them some fruitcake. But, it’s a special fruitcake—fruitcake laced with marijuana! As you would suspect, mayhem takes place. With Christmas music entwined in the story, one could call this show a Christmas musical. If all goes as intended, this one-act show will be broken up into sections to allow for a wonderful dinner prepared by our fabulous chefs of Quail Creek. To conclude the festivities, the PAG Chorus will also provide a few songs of Christmas music to enhance your evening’s experience.

Director Bill is looking for all who are interested in auditioning for the show. There are speaking parts, with no singing required. There are singing parts, with no speaking required. And as always, a combination of both! Anyone interested in auditioning for the show does not have to be a member of PAG. However, to be in the show, those people are required to join the organization.

For those who have an interest in the arts but are not yet a member of PAG, this is a great opportunity to come and meet the people involved, and then hopefully, make a decision. If you are not available to attend on the audition dates, Bill is very flexible, and will work with you so that you can audition—even Zoom audition from another state.
