The Wonders of Christmas magic show tryouts on November 1st and 2nd

Mark your calendars.  Auditions for FCT’s original magic production ‘The Wonders of Christmas’ will be held Tuesday, November 1st and Wednesday, November 2nd at 7pm in the Ross High School Little Theatre (not at FCT as the facility is in use for the upcoming production of ‘On Golden Pond’).  We will be looking for the following cast:

Host:  adult…minimal lines

Jingles: Male or Female elf with quite a bit of memorization.  Jingles has left the North Pole to bring a troupe of dancers to Broadway.  Preferential casting will be given to older FCT Youth Camp participants and teens.

Elsy: A snow princess.  Medium amount of memorization.  Sings in show.  Please be prepared to sing a Frozen or Christmas song at auditions.  Teen or young adult.

Ann: A snow princess.  Medium amount of memorization.  Sings in show.  Please be prepared to sing a Frozen or Christmas song at auditions.  Teen or young adult.

Snowman: no memorization…will need to be small enough to fit into illusion build.  

Mice:  low memorization, looking for children aged 8-12

  • Mouse 1: A pesky mouse that is a bookworm, considers him/herself to be very intelligent the leader of the mice and is a theater buff.
  • Mouse 2: A romantic mouse, always looking for love. (Male Roll)
  • Mouse 3: A clumsy mouse him/her always falling down and getting into trouble and is obsessed with cheese.

Ushers/Stage Hands:  no memorizing but will be involved in helping volunteers to and from the stage during the show.   We will need one stage hand to also be a swing actor for Noel’s Cameo: Minimal lines

As this is a bonus show for FCT, those cast will be expected to memorize their parts during the two and a half week time period prior to the first practice on Monday, November 21st.  This is a VERY short three week practice schedule with performances on Friday, December 9 through Sunday, December 11 so those cast must be ready to hit the stage running.

Capture - TUNA Square

Fremont Community Theatre and Director Pete Lowry are pleased to present RED, WHITE AND TUNA by by Ed Howard, Joe Sears and Jaston Williams.

The much anticipated third installment in the Tuna trilogy takes the audience through another satirical ride into the hearts and minds of the polyester–clad citizens of Texas’ third smallest town. Along with Tuna’s perennial favorites, some new denizens burst into the 4th of July Tuna High School Class Reunion. This sets the stage for a show full of fireworks and fun from the land where the Lion’s Club is too literal and Patsy Cline never dies.

The show is a two-man show with the 19 different characters assigned per the list below:

Amber Windchime – Flower child, former Tuna resident
Arles Struvie – A disc jockey at radio station OKOK, now in a relationship with Bertha Bumiller
Petey Fisk – Employee of the Greater Tuna Humane Society
Charlene Bumiller – Daughter of Bertha Bumiller and brother to Stanley; now a military bride
Stanley Bumiller – Taxidermist, now residing in Albuquerque
Vera Carp – Town snob and leader of the Prayer Posse
Didi Snavely – Owner of Didi’s Used Weapons (“If we can’t kill it, it’s immortal”)
Helen Bedd – co-owner of “Helen & Inita’s Hot-to-Trot Catering”
Garland Poteet – Soda dispenser and one of Helen’s many boyfriends

Star Birdfeather – Flower child, former Tuna resident
Thurston Wheelis – A disc jockey at radio station OKKK
Elmer Watkins – spokesperson for Free White Texas
Bertha Bumiller – Housewife and mother to Jody, Stanley, and Charlene, now in a relationship with Arles Struvie
Pearl Burras – Aunt to Bertha, whose potato-salad recipe is prize-winning
Joe Bob Lipsey – the “not-the-marrying-kind” director of the Tuna Little Theater
R.R. Snavely – UFOlogist and husband to Didi, now returned to Tuna
Inita Goodwin – co-owner of “Helen & Inita’s Hot-to-Trot Catering”
Leonard Childers – Entrepreneur and radio personality on OKKK
The Reverend Spikes – Now out of prison

The cast is Michael PJ Foos and Tim Bolton, who will be reprising many of their roles from A TUNA CHRISTMAS and will be adding some new ones for this production!

RED, WHITE AND TUNA will be presented on January 29-31 and February 5-7, 2016 with special permission from Samuel French.

This show has a suggested rating of PG-13.

Tickets are $15.00; Student/Senior tickets are $12.00 and will go on sale in January. For a HUGE savings on adult and senior tickets, it’s not to late for a Season Ticket purchase!


TODAY is the Day!: December 1 is #GivingTuesday!


Thank you to all who chose to give to FCT on #GivingTuesday 2015!

“We have a day for giving thanks. We have two for getting deals. Now, we have #GivingTuesday, a global day dedicated to giving back. On Tuesday, December 1, 2015, charities, families, businesses, community centers, and students around the world will come together for one common purpose: to celebrate generosity and to give.

It’s a simple idea. Just find a way for your family, your community, your company or your organization to come together to give something more. Then tell everyone you can about how you are giving. Join us and be a part of a global celebration of a new tradition of generosity.”

Last year, we set a goal of $1,500.00 last year, and raised more than $1,600.00 in less than 24 hours, with a $500.00 matching employer payment coming in the following month.  This was by far the most successful fundraising drive FCT has had in years.

So we’re doing it again!  This year, on December 1, 2015, we ask that you please consider donating to FCT as part of your way to give back.  We are proud to be “more than a stage in your life” and hope that we can continue to be so in the future!  All donations dated December 1, 2015 will count toward our fundraising efforts that day, whether by check or credit card.  We’d like very much to at least match last year’s giving!

Feel free to donate using the button below, or by sending a check made out to Fremont Community Theatre (Fremont Community Teen Theatre or Fremont Community Youth Theatre, if you wish to support the kids), dated December 1, 2015.  We appreciate your giving!
