Auditions will soon take place for a production Diamond Theatre of Ligonier owner Leigh Ann Rice-McCulty has written for the holiday season.

“‘The Christmas Storm of the Century’ is a funny and heartwarming play about Christmas Eve shenanigans that take place when a family get-together turns out to be longer than expected because of the storm,” Rice-McCulty says.

The family is stuck together, with a storm brewing on the outside and personalities clashing inside the home, she adds.

The storm also is causing havoc at the North Pole. The elves are in a tizzy because Christmas may get canceled, and their only hope of fixing Santa’s sleigh is calling the dreaded Boris.

Will the storm let up? Will Christmas indeed be canceled?

“The Christmas Storm of the Century” show dates are 6 p.m. Dec. 6, 3 and 6 p.m. Dec. 7 and 3 p.m. Dec. 8 at the theater, 210 W. Main St.

Auditions will be held from 4 to 6 p.m. Sept. 29 and 6 to 8 p.m Oct. 1. They are expected to last only 5 to 10 minutes, Rice-McCulty says. 

Rehearsals will begin Oct. 8 and will be held thereafter from 6 to 8 p.m. Tuesdays and Thursdays.

Producers are seeking actors age 8 and up, with no experience required.

“We have big parts and small parts as well,” she says.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
