The Cast of "White Christmas"

Director Eddie Harbert sends along the cast list for 5th Avenue Theatre's White Christmas (and a talented group it is), along with some other information:
The principal cast of White Christmas has been chosen for 5th Avenue Theatre Company's production to be performed December 3-5 and 10-12 at the Jean C. Stephenson Auditorium at City Hall.

The principal cast is as follows:

Bob Wallace: Josh Janotta
Phil Davis: Greg Kiser
Betty Haynes: Angela Wolfe
Judy Haynes: Jessica Maier
Martha Watson: Jane Modlin
Rita: Kerri Easter
Ezekiel Foster: Erik Weingardt
Mrs. Snoring Man: Susan Rawn

We are still looking for someone to fill the role of General Henry Waverly. He is a gentleman in his 50s to 60s. He is a retired U.S. Army General adjusting to returning to civilian life in post World War II America. Beneath his curmudgeonly, military exterior lies a warm, compassionate man in need of family and love. With the exception of one line, this is primarily a non-singing role.

We are also auditioning for the role of Susan Waverly, the General's granddaughter. She is a lovable, outgoing kid ranging between the ages of 9-12. She is smart and wise beyond her years. She must have an excellent belting voice and be able to move well.

There are also several small reading parts for the ensemble to perform. Ensemble auditions will be held on Sunday, August 15 from 1-5 p.m. at the Jean C. Stephenson Auditiorium in City Hall. We will also be auditioning for the roles of the General and Susan at that time.

There will be a children's pre-show prior to the start of the show each evening. Children interested in being in the pre-show should also come to the auditions on August 15.

For more information about White Christmas or the auditions, please call Eddie Harbert at 304-412-8738.

5th Avenue is part of the City of Huntington Foundation. Tickets may be purchased by calling Maxine Loudermilk at the City of Huntington Foundation at 304-696-5522.

Come join us for a spectacular show!
