The Ultimate Santa
The kids and I have roles in Rosetown Playhouse’s upcoming production of The Ultimate Santa. It’s very exciting for me as I have a named role, “Stocky” – a stock-broker and contestant in the Ultimate Santa television reality show.
So what's it all about?
Is Santa irrelevant? Perhaps? An unscrupulous television network, trying to boost ratings has decided to cash in on questions circulating about the continued relevancy of Santa Claus by hosting a reality TV show to find a replacement, a “new” Santa. Twelve people are put forward to compete for the title of The Ultimate Santa – including the real Santa Claus, and Mrs. Claus – along with a cast of characters with little or no experience to actually be Santa.
We’ve had two rehearsals so far – concentrating on lines and blocking. Dancing starts Thursday! Yipee!
It’s a busy time in our household with Maria getting ready to open Roseville Area High School’s production of Urinetown: The Musical.
