Inspecting Carol runs on the Mainstage through December 2, 2012: A Christmas Carol meets Waiting for Guffman meets Noises Off in this hilarious comedy. A man who asks to audition at a small theatre is mistaken for an informer for the National Endowment for the Arts. Everyone caters to the bewildered wannabe actor and he is given a role in the current production, A Christmas Carol. Everything goes wrong and hilarity is piled upon hilarity. By Daniel J. Sullivan. Directed by Joan Atwood. Performances are Friday and Saturday nights at 7:30 pm, and Sunday afternoons at 2:30 pm. Tickets are $12-$22 and are available online, by phone or in person at the Box Office.
The Santaland Diaries runs December 13-16, 2012: Asheville’s favorite holiday tradition is back for an 11th encore production with a new director, new star, new everything! Betsy Puckett takes the reins in her Mainstage directorial debut, and Daniel Hensley slides in the striped stockings of Crumpet the Elf. The Santaland Diaries is David Sedaris’ hilarious comedy commenting on the best and worst of people from a retail employee’s point of view. Performances are Thursday, Friday, and Saturday night at 7:30 pm and Sunday afternoon at 2:30 pm. All tickets are $15.00 and are available online, by phone or in person at the Box Office.
Saturdays at ACT returns with The Gift of the Magi & Other Tales: On December 15, 2012, Bright Star Touring Theatre returns to headline Asheville Community Theatre’s Saturday family series. In O’Henry’s tale The Gift of the Magi, the focus is on putting others first. The Indian folktale The Drum is a story of generosity and the power of giving. And Bright Star’s rendition of Stone Soup stresses the value of sharing and helping others. A great trio of stories wrapped together just in time for the holidays! Performance begins at 10:00 am. Tickets are $5.00 and are available at the door.
Auditions for BARK! on December 18-19, 2012: It’s the North Carolina premiere of David Troy Francis’ smash hit musical BARK! This small musical is directed by Eric Mills with musical direction by Brad Curtioff. Please prepare to sing 16 bars of music and bring your sheet music to the audition in the key in which you will be singing. We will provide an accompanist.
