Join Santa, Frosty, Rudolph and friends for a 25-minute holiday extravaganza, formerly known as Santa’s Frosty Follies. Although we have decided to change the title of our holiday show, to better suit the creative direction of the show, this holiday tradition continues! With a brand new number added each year, this Broadway style revue is a favorite for many and is a holiday performance we are delighted to share with our community each year. Auditions will be held Friday, September 6th from 8:00 p.m. to 10:30 p.m.
Eligibility: Main Ensemble: Ages 8+ and enrolled in MSA Jazz Level 2+ and an MSA ballet class. Please note that due to stage size limitations at certain venues, we need to limit cast size. We will not be able to cast everyone who auditions.
