The story centers on the young but poor couple of Della and Jim. Their love for each other is unquestionable and their only desire is to see to the other’s happiness. Christmas is approaching and neither have the money to buy a proper gift. Unbeknownst to each other, Della and Jim both make great personal sacrifices in order to procure the money needed. A special and memorable lesson is learned by all when they realize that the gift of love is more valuable than anything money can buy.
Actors, singers and crew. Experienced theater performers and newcomers are both welcome.
Roles include the leads of DELLA and JIM and a supporting cast of up to 8 characters.
The show can be adapted for music and so we are also looking for CAROLERS/NARRATORS.
A director and creative team for this show. This project is being designed as a complete open call and we highly encourage anyone with an interest in theater to participate. Nagoya Players will handle administrative, budgetary and production elements so the creative team can focus on making a memorable and entertaining show.
Auditions will be held beginning February 2018.
Rehearsals will begin on or about March 2018.
Performances will take place December 2018.
