OPEN CALL!! So, y’all git yerselves on down to The Pearl Theater!
Christmas Belles by Jessie Jones, Nicholas Hope and Jamie Wootn.
Directed by: Vince Tortorice
Sunday, October 9 & Monday October 10, 7:00pm to 10:00pm
A church Christmas program spins hilariously out of control in this Southern farce about squabbling sisters, family secrets, a surly Santa, a vengeful sheep and a reluctant Elvis impersonator.
It's Christmas-time in the small town of Fayro, Texas, and the Futrelle Sisters—Frankie, Twink and Honey Raye—are not exactly in a festive mood. A cranky Frankie is weeks overdue with her second set of twins. Twink, recently jilted and bitter about it, is in jail for inadvertently burning down half the town. And hot-flash-suffering Honey Raye is desperately trying to keep the Tabernacle of the Lamb's Christmas Program from spiraling into chaos. But things are not looking too promising: Miss Geneva, the ousted director of the previous twenty-seven productions, is ruthless in her attempts to take over the show. The celebrity guest Santa Claus—played by Frankie's long-suffering husband, Dub—is passing a kidney stone. One of the shepherds refuses to watch over his flock by night without pulling his little red wagon behind him. And the entire cast is dropping like flies due to food poisoning from the Band Boosters' Pancake Supper. And when Frankie lets slip a family secret that has been carefully guarded for decades, all hope for a successful Christmas program seems lost, even with an Elvis impersonator at the manger. But in true Futrelle fashion, the feuding sisters find a way to pull together in order to present a Christmas program the citizens of Fayro will never forget. Their hilarious holiday journey through a misadventure-filled Christmas Eve is guaranteed to bring joy to your world!

Cast of Characters

Twink Futrelle, middle Futrelle sister, 40’s. The “black sheep,” loud and the toughest of the sisters.

Frankie Futrelle Dubberly, youngest Futrelle sister, 40’s. Pregnant with her 2nd set of twins, the most normal of the sisters and full of wit.
Rhonda Lynn Lampley, 50’s. Flashy manager of The Dairy Dog, a cross between Martha Stewart and Paula Dean.
Justin Waverly, 20’s. Interim Pastor at the Tabernacle of the Lamb, very sweet and innocent.
Raynerd Chisum, adult male. Part-time employee at The Dairy Dog, very simple and earnest, always speaks from the heart.

Illusionist needs helpers for fun gigs!
Level : 1; EXP : 0
HP : 0 / 0
MP : 0 / 0
I'm Curt Miller, a professional Illusionist based in Houston. I perform a large-scale magic show for Corporate Events, and I'm looking for a few helpers with upcoming shows. The first upcoming show is in September 28 at the Houston Hyatt downtown. The gigs pay $200 each.
This is a fun and relatively easy gig! Here's a typical scenario: We meet at the venue in the afternoon, unload a few things from the trailer and set up the pipe & drape, spotlight, sound system and props. We have a lovely dinner with the clients, do the show, then pack up and that's it! Sometimes I'll ask you to meet me at my house first to help load or unload props. It's a comedy show, and we are very easy to work with.
I book quite a few of these gigs (especially around the Holidays), so I'm looking for a collection of great people I can put on my list. You need to be extremely trustworthy, hardworking, reliable, and have integrity. If you don't have these four qualities, please don't contact me. If this is you, I'd love to hear from you. I'll promise you'll have fun!
