Ten-year-old Violet is determined to show the world, not to mention the cool kids at school, just how special she is. With the help of her assistant Freddy, she sets out to break a world record, but becomes accidentally extraordinary when she’s struck by lightning–twice–and gains control over all things electric. Under the name Miss Electricity, Violet zaps her way through circuits, bullies, and tests, but could lose everything when the power goes to her head.

Adult Ralph Parker recounts the Christmas he celebrated as a nine year old living with his parents and younger brother in northern Indiana. This particular Christmas was special: his contest-obsessed father won a prize and the never-ending battle with the house furnace. Ralphie faced challenges of his own: clashing with the town bullies and discovering a new relationship with soap. But most memorable was what he wanted more than anything for Christmas: an official Red Ryder carbine action 200-shot range model air rifle, aka a BB gun. Retold with a touch of childhood fantasy, these Christmas stories remind us all why we love the holidays.
Auditions are October 23 and 24, 2017 at 7:00 p.m. at Weber Center for the Performing Arts.
Beezus, our narrator, introduces us to the Quimby family and friends in this collection of vignettes that trace her little sister Ramona’s tumultuous passage through third grade. Ramona is usually either aggravating her older sister, getting into trouble, or “making a big, noisy fuss” when things don’t go her way. Although Ramona and Beezus don’t always get along, they come to realize that amazing things can happen when families stick together.
