Red Curtain's holiday show is the heartwarming play "My Three Angels" by Sam and Bella Spewack.
It is Christmas Eve in the tropical prison colony of Cayenne. Felix Dulay, a hapless storekeeper, is fearfully awaiting the owner, Gaston. Providence has given the Dulays three guardian angels — three convicts hired for roof repair! In no time they have cooked Christmas lunch — and Felix's books — and will loose their own executioner on Gaston for his cruel behavior!
Directed by Eric Bischoff, "My Three Angels" offers a non-traditional look at the Christmastime tenets of good will and peace on earth ... with a little murder thrown in for good measure.
To reserve an audition slot, please email your headshot and resume to firstname.lastname@example.org. Actors should prepare a 2-minute monologue. Auditions and performances will be held at the Red Curtain Arts Center at 9315 State Ave, Suite J in Marysville.
