Jeff Goode's The Eight: Reindeer Monologues

Once Christmas has passed, and the cheer subsided,
A nasty rumour has the public divided.
At the North Pole all hell breaks loose,
When accusations fly, of sexual abuse.
Find out if all this is just slander,
Or if the reindeer really do have some candor.
As Vixen speaks up, and so does Donner,
It seems that Santa is finally a goner.
But Comment stands to his defence,
The atmosphere becomes most tense.
Hear Blitzen, Cupid, Hollywood and Dancer,
And Dasher, their leader, each give their own answer.


Would you like a chance to perform at the Theatre Royal Winchester? Come and audition for our (anti) Christmas Show, The Eight: Reindeer Monologues!

TUESDAY 18TH NOVEMBER
15:00 - 17:00, PAS 4 (University of Winchester)

We are looking for 5 male and 3 female actors to portray Santa's reindeer in a dark comedy, telling the real story behind Christmas. Quick wit, improvisation skills and the ability to learn lines really really fast is a must! For your auditions, please prepare a 1-2 minute interpretation of any of the following characters:

DASHER - Militaristic leader, proud of his job and won't take any shit from anyone.
CUPID - Flamboyantly camp sex addict.
HOLLYWOOD - Exactly what his name suggests. (Originally Prancer)
BLITZEN - Opinionated and straight to the point, mildly pessimistic.
COMET - Rehabilitated drug addict who think Santa is the greatest thing since sliced bread.
DANCER - Gretschen Weiner from Mean Girls, a gossip queen who makes herself seem dumber than she really is.
DONNER - Rudolph's father, typical 'I accomplished nothing and therefore my child has to be the best' kind of parent.
VIXEN - Femme fatale accusing Santa of sexual assault.

Good luck, and hope to see you all at the auditions!

Charlotte Mackenzie speaks to the Bogotá Anglo Theater director Tigre Haller about the company’s latest spine-tingling production: The Turn of the Screw

Written by Henry James in the 1800s, The Turn of the Screw is, in Tigre’s words: “A classic psychological ghost story.”

For those of you expecting a large cast, in this adaptation all the parts are played by two actors – Nathalia Franco and Tatiana Ronderos – leaving a lot to the audience’s imagination.

Tigre has certainly risen to the challenge of putting on a classic thriller. Regarding the casting, he tells us: “Part of our mission at the BAT is to cast English-speaking Colombian actors in lead roles where possible”. It is just one aspect that adds to the BAT’s charm, and a key element behind the company’s well-executed productions.

“It’s been very interesting, working with a smaller cast the dynamic is much more heightened. Here with just the two of them up on stage, their relationship off stage has to be extremely solid. They work extremely well together.”

The Turn of the Screw will be staged in El Pepino restaurant, meaning a daily reshuffle of the space: “We reconfigure the space to our needs each night – and then we put it all back for the lunch service.

“Pepino is a very intimate space, it works very well for The Turn of the Screw because the production needs to be in a smaller venue so that everyone feels that they are being told a ghost story around the fireplace – it certainly lends itself to that.”

And for all you Christmas lovers, the BAT are already well into rehearsals for their 2015 production: The Eight Reindeer Monologues. Featuring a larger cast, and a plot involving sexual allegations against Santa Claus, the production will be staged during December.

Showing at El Pepino, Carrera 14 #87-71 from October 20 – 29. Performances on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays (No performance on October 27). Tickets $45,000 on the door or at www.biciq.com (price includes a drink).

The BAT, Bogota's English-language theater company, brings to life high-quality and dynamic classics, contemporary plays and new works.

Leave the kids at home, grab a drink and come and help us kick off the holiday season right as Neptune Sushi Productions presents: The 8.

Christmas is in jeopardy. Santa Claus has been accused of sexual harassment by one of his reindeer causing some of them to go on strike. Which reindeer are genuinely concerned and which are out for themselves? Who's telling the truth and who's hiding what they know? Are the allegations true? Will Christmas even happen this year? Each reindeer, with a personality as different as their take on what really happened, take to the stage to speak their mind as the truth is slowly revealed. Join us for this R rated, dark humored Christmas extravaganza that skewers Christmas, commercialism, politics, religion, celebrities, and the media all in one fantastic and hilarious show.

Seeking male or female for R Rated Xmas play (Derry NH)

I am seeking either a male or female to portray the role of Hollywood (AKA Prancer) in a production of The Eight: Reindeer Monologues by Jeff Goode. Show dates are Friday, November 20 and Saturday, November 21 at 8 p.m. at the VFW, 18 Railroad Avenue in Derry, NH.

The role is a straight comedic monologue that's less than 10 minutes, where Prancer is nicknamed Hollywood because of the film made with his/her name. The role is a narcissistic, ego oozing, self promoter. Think Matthew McConahay or Colin Ferrell for a man or a divaesque Kardashian type for a girl. Rehearsals are underway with th rest of the cast so we want to fill this spot quickly.

Seeking between 18 and 40 yo, fit or thin body type and a quick study. Flexible schedule on the director's end makes it easy to work with your schedule. Please send headshot, resume or link to your acting profile page. Rehearsals to take place in Manchester and Derry, NH.

THIS IS NOT A PAID POSITION.

NAUGHTY AND NICE for the Holidays

A CHRISTMAS STORY (Nice)
By Jean Shepherd, Bob Clark, Leigh Brown, Philip Grecian
November 27 – December 20, 2015 – Christel DeHaan Main Stage
Director: Lori Raffel

Humorist Jean Shepherd's memoir of growing up in the Midwest in the 1940s follows 9-year-old Ralphie Parker in his quest to get a genuine Red Ryder BB gun under the tree for Christmas. All the elements from the beloved motion picture are here, including the family's temperamental exploding furnace; Scut Farkas, the school bully; the boys' experiment with a wet tongue on a cold lamppost; the Little Orphan Annie decoder pin; Ralphie's father winning a lamp shaped like a woman's leg in a net stocking; Ralphie's fantasy scenarios and more. A Christmas Story is destined to become a theatrical holiday perennial.
"The stage version lightens up a little on the cute, smart-alecky asides … allowing the story mostly to speak for itself…." — NY Times
"The stage adaptation plays like a heart-tugging, best-of version of the movie." –EW "No coal in the Christmas stocking for this entertaining family show!" —Hollywood reporter

Yo' Santa! Jingle this!! In this delightfully dark holiday comedy, scandal erupts at the North Pole when one of Santa's reindeer accuse him of sexual harassment. Charges are brought against ol' St. Nick and, as all eight tiny flyers give their depositions, we learn that the fellow isn't quite as holly jolly as we thought.

Due to the adult nature and language of this play, no one under 17 will be admitted.

Jersey City, NJ 07302
Merseles Studios
Friday @ 7:30 p.m.

What an awesome year of creating art that brings people together, heals broken spirits and celebrates life!! We want to share it with you!!!

A musical about war and gun violence, another about an Eyeball kid and the power of Art, a comedy about Santa Clause and Rape, an esoteric monologue that everyone can identify with about pain and suffering and if we start feeling really saucy we might sing about drunk pianos.

APP does not present your typical theater and we are not your typical artists but we love what we do and hope you will too!!

Featuring Joe Bowen, Ben Curtis, Camila Camilo, Robbie Frost, Amy Fulgham, Kenny Jaworski, Stacey Haughton, Erik Parillo, Stephen Tenner, and Anthony Wills Jr.

Co-directed by Lila Stromer and Anthony Wills Jr.

Come join us in an evening of art, music and monologues from APP's 4th season and previews of new works to come!

A great evening of networking between artists of all genres.

Well our little troupe was going to take a year off from reindeer-ing but the community wouldn't have it!
At the last minute, due to demand, we licensed two performances.
Reindeer Monologues has become a community tradition here in conservative, Bible Belt Tullahoma, TN.-- a respite for the holiday-weary cynic.
Thanks for the great text and fun characters.
We have performed in a very high class French Restaurant, a local arts center's parlor, a local theatre's black box and this year in the local Mexican restaurant.
Merry Christmas from some of your loyalest fans in TN.

THE EIGHT:
Reindeer Monologues
by Jeff Goode

Are you looking for something different for Christmas this year? Tired of A Christmas Carol and Gift of the Magi? Well, this is the show for you: eight reindeer dishing 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! (Not for the kiddies!)

Board Member Jill Fay Pace then announced the upcoming children's programs, including the two TWKids productions for 2015: Dear Edwina Jr. and Shrek Jr. Continuing the tradition of bringing lesser known or more complex pieces to the stage, Secretary Joseph Russo announced the Page2Stage selections for the next season, which include Tom Eyen's Women Behind Bars, Terrence McNally's Master Class, Israel Horovitz's My Old Lady and the return of Jeff Goode's The Eight: Reindeer Monologues, which was produced on the TheatreWorks stage in 1998. Russo also informed the audience that in the summer, TheatreWorks will be introducing a Workshop Series for Connecticut Playwrights.
