A Christmas Carol meets The Government Inspector meets Noises Off in this hilarious hit from Seattle. A man who asks to audition at a small theater is mistaken for an informant for the National Endowment for the Arts. Everyone caters to the bewildered wannabe actor and he is given a role in their current production of A Christmas Carol. Everything goes wrong and hilarity is piled upon hilarity.
The cast of characters includes 8 males and 4 females.
Zorah Bloch -- In her 40's. Founding director of The Soapbox Playhouse. Extremely self-concerned.
Sidney Carlton -- In his 60's. A founding member of the Company. Kind but somewhat addled.
Dorothy Tree Hapgood -- In her 60's. Sidney's wife. English and unable to lose her accent. A founding member.
Larry Vauxhall -- In his 40's. Tough, intellectually vain child of the 1960's, still looking for a turn-on. A founding member.
Phil Hewlitt -- In his 40's. Small, obsessive, usually plays the ineffectual character in any Soapbox production. A founding member.
Walter E. Parsons -- African-American in his 30's. Recently taken up acting again after a stint in the armed forces. Good-natured, excitable.
Luther Beatty -- A large 11 year-old. He's been playing Tiny Tim two years too long. Extremely friendly.
Kevin Emery -- In his 40's. A nervous man in the impossible position of managing director. Afraid of Zorah.
M.J. (Mary Jane) McMann -- In her 40's. A realist. She long ago realized that the Company hit bottom. She looks on now as a bemused observer. Founding member.
Betty Andrews -- In her 40's. An inspector for the National Endowment for the Arts. A forbidding appearance. Bright red hair.
Bart Francis -- A pleasant youth. Dresses in a motorcycle jacket and torn jeans.
Wayne Wellacre -- In his 30's, in search of a new career in acting, no training, less talent, affable, eager to please.
