WILMINGTON — It’ll soon be time for locals to audition for the annual Murphy Theatre Christmas Show!

Auditions will be held on Sunday, Oct. 3 from 1 p.m. until about 5 p.m. and Monday, Oct. 4 from 5 p.m. until about 8 p.m. on the Murphy Theatre stage.

Please only audition if you will be able to commit to rehearsals (dates to be determined) and show dates — Friday, Dec. 3; Saturday, Dec. 4; and and Sunday, Dec. 5. Masks are required for auditions.

This year’s show will have a “generational gathering” theme and the setting will be the grandparents’ home on Christmas Eve through Christmas morning.

This is a great opportunity to join our community in celebrating the holidays on the historic Murphy Theatre stage. This year’s performance is co-directed by Diane Murphy and Dean Feldmeyer.

Also, specifically, we are looking for:

• 3-4 year-olds to be mice

• Ballet dancers (bring shoes)

• Teens that can inline skate (bring skates)

• Teens and adults to sing and/or dance
