Twelve Days of Christmas

Twelve Days of Christmas for Stage West for Kids, Adapted by Chris Stockton

This production is fun for all ages.

Birnton Productions is excited to announce the auditions for their upcoming holiday production.

Birnton Productions mandate is to produce theatre and offer educational programming that introduces kids and young adults to the power and magic of live theatre and drama. Our goal is to not only foster the development of beginning artists but also to excite a young generation into becoming life long patrons of the arts.

Birnton Theatricals has a responsibility to create work spaces where people are comfortable in a creation process and can be themselves in every capacity. With this in mind we encourage submissions from those who identify as Indigenous, Black or POC as well as 2SLGBTQ, disabled/people with disabilities and/or neuro-divergent people.

The Twelve Days of Christmas is a modern look at the classic Christmas Carol of the same name. Siblings Britt and Jon are always getting on each other’s nerves. However, after getting a challenge from their Mom to be nice to each other for once, the siblings enter into a pact to try to find the best Christmas present possible for each other in the 12 days leading up to December 25. Recruiting their friends Rhianna and Mark, Britt and Jon set out to out gift the other in an imaginative way that leads to bizarre interpretations of the traditional 12 days of Christmas. A slapstick comedy with lots of audience participation, this new spin on a traditional song will leave audiences believing in the power of giving and the real meanings of Christmas

Auditions will be done by video submissions.
