TheatreTBD is holding auditions for their upcoming production of The Eight: Reindeer Monologues by Jeff Goode. A wickedly dark....dark comedy that gives you a glimpse into what happens when an institution of joy comes crashing down. Eight reindeer dish about the real Santa. All those rumors you've heard about him and the elves? About Rudolph's little secret? About Vixen's story that was leaked to the press? All true. Yes, the reindeer finally speak up and - believe us - they do not hold back!
"A dark, dark Christmas comedy. Scandal erupts at the North Pole when one of Santa's eight tiny reindeer accuses him of sexual harassment.
As mass media descends upon the event, the other members of the sleigh team demand to share their perspectives, and a horrific tale of corruption and perversion emerges, which seems to implicate everyone from the littlest elf to the tainted Saint himself.
With each deer's confession, the truth behind the shocking allegations becomes clearer and clearer. ...and murkier and murkier."
