Theatre Tuscaloosa to Hold Auditions for The Great Christmas Cookie Bake-Off on October 1 & 2


TUSCALOOSA, AL – Theatre Tuscaloosa will hold auditions for The Great Christmas Cookie Bake-Off on October 1st and 2nd at 2:00 p.m. in the Bean-Brown Theatre on the Martin Campus of Shelton State Community College (9500 Old Greensboro Road, Tuscaloosa, AL 35405).

In this festive, family-friendly musical, eight young cookie chefs from across the country battle it out for first prize at the Cookie Coliseum. As three celebrity judges eliminate the chefs one by one, tension mounts and rivalry begins to give way to charity, family, and forgiveness. Meanwhile, the chefs learn what really makes for a winning Christmas recipe.

Roles are available for all genders, races, and ethnicities, and for children and adults, ages ten and up. A full cast of characters and their descriptions can be found on the Theatre Tuscaloosa website. Those interested in auditioning should prepare 16 bars (measures) of a Christmas song that best shows off their range, bring appropriate shoes and attire for the dance portion, and be prepared for cold readings from the script. Auditionees must bring a complete calendar of any potential conflicts with the rehearsal schedule.

Theatre Tuscaloosa strongly encourages all auditionees to be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 to protect themselves and the integrity of the production. A perusal copy of the script is available to read in the ticket office during normal office hours, Monday through Thursday from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. and Friday from 9:00 a.m. to noon.

Rehearsals are planned to begin on October 24 and will generally run Monday through Friday evenings, 6:30-9:30 p.m., and Sunday afternoons 2:00-5:00 p.m. until closer to performance weeks.

The Great Christmas Cookie Bake-Off will be presented December 9-18 in the Bean-Brown Theatre.
