Auditions for the annual Christmas special at Hawkeye Community Theatre will be 5 to 8 p.m. Tuesday and Wednesday at the theater.
Dave Stokesbary will cast and direct the show, which calls for 18 people, 10 with speaking parts- four female and six male - and eight nonspeaking parts.
The show will be "Joy: A Christmas Rock Musical," which shows what happens when a group of seniors arrive to prepare for an annual Nativity play only to find no director, no script and no set. With the help on one student who learned the story in Sunday school, the troupe puts together a show.
This show will be presented at 7 p.m. on Dec. 16 and 17 and 2 p.m. on Dec. 18.
