A.C.T. Christmas Drama 2017

Christmas in July?
Yes, it may be a little early to be thinking about Christmas—but not for ACT Drama Group. We are already thinking about our Christmas Production for this December. We were unable to have a production last year and would like to start planning for this year by seeing who is interested in participating in a large Christmas musical production.
ACT has scheduled the Christmas Production for December 9 & 10, 2017. Lots of help will be needed on stage and behind the scenes in order to continue this annual Christmas Production. We need adult actors, (singers and non singers), children actors and chorus members. If you would like to be a part of the cast or help behind the scenes this Christmas, please sign up online (link below) or see Gail Grubb (ACT Committee President)
A commitment for the ACT Christmas Production consists of (stage actors and chorus) about 10-12 weeks of rehearsal (usually one day a week/Sunday afternoons) starting late September and (Cast and Stage Crew) help with set construction, props and costumes on a few scheduled Saturday work days in October and November.
ACT is open to all ages and open to our community. You do not need to attend CVZ Church to participate. Sign Up online through the month of July to join ACT Drama Group’s Christmas Production and be a part of this unique outreach ministry.
