Four Tickets to Christmas, A Christmas Musical

The Salvation Army Kroc Center is proud to announce auditions for their upcoming Christmas Musical, Four Tickets To Christmas. This landmark dramatic musical grows out of a captivating story set in 1905. When a touring musical family finds no place to go for Christmas, they return to their grandparents’ farm in northern Ohio. There they are forced to deal with longstanding conflicts. The cast consists of four major characters and six supporting characters plus various ensembles and soloists, with the choir becoming part of the story. All roles are available! Children must be able to read, memorize, and sing.
