Homegrown Productions presents Holiday Channel Christmas Movie Wonderthon at the Wilson Center Auditorium

Next up at the Wilson Center Auditorium: The Holiday Channel Christmas Movie Wonderthon!

Christmas is a time for magic. A time for the traditions we cherish. A time to watch as many original TV movies as a human being can possibly endure.

But now with the Holiday Channel Christmas Movie Wonderthon, you can enjoy the sugar rush of six Christmas movies all at once!

Welcome to Hopewood Falls, Vermont, where singles in adorable sweaters converge to look for love. Can disguises help royalty and/or movie stars find the down-to-earth connections they crave? Will evil city slickers destroy charming inns and/or Christmas tree farms?

Isn’t it a little creepy for a meet-cute to depend on one person being in a coma?

Grab a hot chocolate and your favorite wise single friend to find out in this wildly entertaining parody of holiday rom-coms, presented in script format on the stage of the historic Wilson Center Auditorium by Homegrown Productions.

Friday, December 2nd7:30pm

AUDITIONS FOR THE MUSICAL COMEDY MURDERS OF 1940

It’s not a musical, it’s a comedy. There isn’t a single murder, but there might be four. The action begins at midnight, in a mansion not too far from Broadway, in a blizzard, with a power failure. If you’re ready for a fast moving, satiric romp, in classic (think Casablanca) costumes, you’re encouraged to audition.

Homegrown Productions is holding auditions on August 22 and 23 at 7 pm at the Wilson Center Auditorium, 101 W. Cass Street, St. Johns. Performance dates are October 6-9. For more information, email susanderosa@msn.com or tomwebb73@gmail.com.

Hope to see you there!
