"RENTED CHRISTMAS: THE MUSICAL" HOLIDAY MUSICAL
By Norman C. Ahern, Jr. and Yvonne Ahern
A middle-aged bachelor and prominent businessman has a challenging job for a proprietor of the local rent shop. He wants to rent a Christmas, not just with a tree and Christmas carols, but complete with a wife, a family, and all of the happiness for which he has been secretly longing. The proprietor believes she has creatively solved the problem of a Christmas family by calling the actors guild, but when the young actors come down with the measles, her last hope is to turn to the local orphanage. Still, the guild can't locate a mother for the part, so she plays the role herself. A 'rented' Christmas soon turns into a new life for all concerned, which makes this a very warm and special holiday treat. Set in the late fifties, beautiful medleys of popular Christmas carols along with delightful original music are the perfect accompaniment to convey the sentiment of the season.
Auditions will consist of cold readings from the script. Be prepared to sing a Christmas carol or song of choice. No accompaniment will be provided, but you may bring your own CD if you choose.
