Two New Shows
or the Holiday Season!
Instead of performing Charles Dickens' beloved holiday classic for the umpteenth time, three actors decide to perform every Christmas story ever told -- plus Christmas traditions from around the world, seasonal icons from ancient times to topical pop-culture, and every carol ever sung. Join us for this madcap romp through the holiday season! The play accomplishes the small miracle of making all Christmas myths seem both utterly ridiculous and absolutely essential.  *Dec. 3,4,5,9,10,11,12,16,17,18,19, 22,23
Chautauqua Children’s Theatre
Saturdays at 1 pm
Dec. 3 - 18
Santa's Christmas Caper or Who Stole the Star?
A sparkling new play written especially for Chautauqua Playhouse!
Join Santa, Mrs. Claus, Rudolph and the Elves as they accompany a young girl in a round-the-world search for a missing star.  Explore the holiday customs of Austria, Italy and Mexico in this fun, interactive production.

Warp and Woof - Dogs in Space

Sunday Dec 12 at 5pm in the theatre and Monday Dec 13 6:30pm in the hallway.

Need 6 actors (gender not a consideration) ages 16+ to play 3 galatic cats and 3 interstellar dogs. Definitely a comedy, so expressive faces and physical comedy skills a plus. Rehearsal schedule to be set after casting, but looking at Mon- Thurs 5:30-6:45 Jan. 3-27. Run is 3 matinee performances on Jan. 29 and Feb. 5 & 12.

Actors must be vaccinated to be considered for a role.

Auditions will consist of cold readings from the script.

What is Chautauqua doing about Covid?
We are very concerned about the spread of this virus, so we take precautions to keep our patrons, actors, crew and staff safe.
Before each performance, the auditorium and lobby areas are sprayed with a virus killing solution.
Actors are required to be vaccinated before they may accept a part in a production.
Patrons are required to be masked from the time they enter the theater, except when eating and drinking.
If a show (especially Children's shows) includes participation, any properties that they may touch will be sanitized prior to performance.
Patrons may be required to show proof of vaccination or negative recent Covid test.  Temperature check may be administered.

Our aim is to keep our theater as safe and virus free as possible.  We thank you for your cooperation.
