It’s that time of year again! EF Productions presents the 29th annual ‘Celebration of Christmas.’ This spectacular Christmas production is a Broadway style musical production where a little angel named Lucy is sent to earth to help show Eliza, a lonely and hopeless young lady, the true meaning of Christmas. It is a cross between Dickens's ‘A Christmas Carol’ and ‘It’s A Wonderful Life.’ There will be four shows running Dec. 1-3. It is the largest theatrical Christmas production in Northern Arizona.

Produced by Mikel Swank & EF Productions, Celebration of Christmas requires a cast and crew of over 100 people in addition to the live orchestra.

There will be an open casting call to the community for anyone interested in being in the cast or crew. Auditions include speaking parts, non-speaking parts for extras, singing, and dance. Participants should come prepared for their audition for acting, singing, and dancing. For those interested in participating in the many technical crews, they should also stop by during the casting call times to meet with the directors and producer.
