AUDITIONS

Come enjoy a jazz filled 1940’s Christmas in the middle of New York City! Follow the pick-pocketing adventures of a little band of homeless children who steal the hearts of all while discovering the true meaning of belonging and love.The drama and music ministries at Graceway Baptist Church are excited to announce our Christmas 2018 production called, Jingle in the City. It will be the BIGGEST production in the history of our church, and we can’t wait to get started.


Auditions are being held on Sunday, April 22nd at 3:00 p.m. You don’t have to be a member of the choir or drama ministry to audition. Prepare a 1-2 minute vocal selection, and be prepared to do a cold reading of the script. Children and teenagers will need to stay longer to learn a dance routine as a part of their audition process.
