Well, since it's a Christmas play, I was thinking, um ........ Christmastime??
If that's too short notice, we could do it on Three Kings.
Hey Rikita -- do you know this "response" Christmas song? I'm pretty sure it's originally German, although I don't know the German words. It starts out, "Who knocks so loud?" response: "Oh, two poor travelers we." then: "What seek you here?" response" "A lodging for the night."
That's all I can remember. It's lovely when done well.
I never got to tread the boards, but was busy making sets, helping actors learn lines and acting as prompt during shows. My city, Adelaide has a major Arts Festival or Fringe Festival each year so there is always something happening if I have time.

This is a good opportunity to bounce this thread to the top, as any anyporters who've arrived in the last couple of years surely want to share their board treading experiences with us.
Oh, I don't know what to say. It's what I do/have done professionally for over 30 years. I'm performing a concert of a new opera next month. That's got me scared. I don't profess to be a classical singer, but I like a challenge.
Oh my goodness! In a thread listing mostly greasepaint triumphs of past, now we have a committed production/staff member and a real pro. (not forgetting Lola's continuing contribution to dance productions).
Questa, it's people like you who allow the usually under-funded troupes to participate in arts festivals, Fringe, etc. Kudos!
Lizzy, I had no idea. Admittedly, after your vague reference to professional make-up in a video thread, I've been wondering. I understand your not wanting to reveal your identity on a public forum, but if you ever decide to let the veil drop, we'll be eager to hear you.
Ach, I'm a theatre actor in Canada, which means that pretty much no one has either seen or heard of me. The singing is just an extension of my jack-of-all-trades approach to employment. I was in one Hollywood movie in my youth which put me off the film/television world for life, really. So, no veil to drop. Just one more anonymous worker in the tower of song.
