Buddy (male, 25-40) Born a human but raised at the North Pole as a Christmas Elf, Buddy is eager to find his place in the world. He is a child at heart and that child-like curiosity makes him both endearing and gets him into trouble.

Jovie (female 25+) Buddy’s girlfriend. She works at Macy’s and has a bit of a cynical outlook on life and love because of the men she’s dated. She is caught off guard by Buddy’s genuinely big heart.

Walter (Male 40+) Buddy’s workaholic father. He is a Children’s book writer, but lacks any of the childlike spirit that Buddy has. He is selfish, tense, and generally angry with life.

Emily (female 35+) Walter’s wife. Though she is sweet and willing to take him in, she thinks Buddy is crazy at first. Wishes her husband would spend more time with the family.

Michael (male, plays 12) Buddy’s stepbrother who is excited to have a new friend and brother. Unlike his mother, he doesn’t take much convincing to have Christmas spirit, but like his mother, he wishes his father would spend more time with the family.

Deb (female 25+)
Walter’s secretary. Takes an instant liking to Buddy simply for the novelty of it. Though she aims to please and is a bit of a suck-up, she feels under appreciated.

A manager at Macy’s just trying to do their job and get by.

Greenway (Male, 45+)
Walter’s boss. He is what Walter will become if he continues down the path he is on. A tyrannical, workaholic who cares nothing about the people around him or who work for him.

Santa (male, 50+)
Just another workingman. Loves his job and Christmas, but also likes to kick-back and watch the game when a rare opportunity arises. A natural storyteller.
Gender: male

Chadwick  One of Walter’s right-hand workers. They are desperate to keep their job, and perhaps the dumber of the two.

Audition information

Auditions are held at Muncie Civic Theatre located 216 E. Main St, Downtown Muncie, Ind. unless otherwise noted above.

If you have any more questions, please email us at

  • You will be asked to read from the script. Non-musical productions will either provide sides from the script or ask you to prepare a monologue, do not prepare anything unless it is stated. 
  • For musicals you will be audition with music from the show usually posted online 2 weeks prior to show. Do not prepare anything else unless it is stated to do so.
  • Wear comfortable clothes. We encourage you to look your best, but also come prepared for some dance or movement exercises for bigger dance musical auditions (not all shows have dance portions).
  • Call Backs will be scheduled for later in the afternoon or the next day. Using the email address you will provide in your audition form or with a physical posted list, we will contact you for your callback. Just because you’re not on the callback list does not mean you are not in the show.
  • Character Breakdowns are listed above for each show. There is some flexibility in requirements within reason (such as age) and some are non-negotiable, so please plan accordingly. You have the ability to indicate which role you are interested in on your audition form, along with whether or not you would accept an ensemble role. Please be honest in your willingness to participate, as this helps the casting process go more smoothly.
  •  Get your calendar out – you need to share your rehearsal conflicts. Every rehearsal is important and while every actor may not be called in for every rehearsal, when you are needed, you are needed! The fewer you have the better, but above all, be honest when filling out the audition form and listing any conflicts you might have.

Rehearsals are typically Sunday – Thursday, 6:30 – 9:30 pm, beginning the week after auditions.

Mainstage Shows run for three weekends (Studio 2 weekends) including a week of technical rehearsals prior. You must be available for all of the show/tech dates.

Anyone who has signed up to audition will receive an email notice the first business day after auditions with the full cast list.
