On November 17-19, Madison Thespians present A Christmas Chaos, a hilarious backstage comedy that pokes fun at the classic novel and everything that can go wrong with a theatrical production.
Gadzooks! The Royal Shakespeare Company hasn’t arrived as promised to perform their stirring rendition of “A Christmas Carol.” So our intrepid band of hapless actors and technicians must put together their own production in only seven hours! What a pity that they are not quite up to the task, even though they give it their all.
Have you ever experienced backstage mayhem? Well, you haven’t seen anything yet! The play focuses on these poor but dedicated thespians doing their best while chaos is all around them: an out-of-control director, thrown together props and costumes, ridiculous scenery, and tons of flubs and confusion.
Audition dates and materials will be posted in the Madison Drama App in August.
