Performance Dates: December 5-8, 2019


Director: Marsha Vermilion


An original show by Marsha Vermilion


It's the 1920s in Grant County, Indiana, and gangster Bootsy Branson is getting ready to pull off the greatest Christmas Eve caper ever. Meanwhile, his girlfriend Judy is trying to believe Bootsy has turned over a new leaf in time for the holidays and a mysterious speakeasy piano player is trying to create a Christmas miracle of his own. With plenty of Grant County references, holiday tunes, and colorful 1920s slang, SHEIKS, SHEBAS, AND SPEAKEASY SANTAS will bring a tap to your toes and a smile to your face.

Audition Information

Auditions will take place Monday, October 14th at 6:30 pm and Wednesday, October 16th at 6:30 pm at the James Dean Memorial Theatre. Please enter through the alley.


There are roles for 20+ people of various ages (evenly divided male and female roles) plus a children's choir. Not all roles sing and dance, but some do, so you may be asked to show those skills. The script will be available to read the weekend before. Lots of local references! It's a play set in 1920s Grant County at Christmas time.


It is recommended that you complete the audition form before arriving.
