At the annual meeting of Union Street Players, the general members agreed to make a change to the final show of the 2009 season. "Sabrina Fair," a romantic comedy on which two Hollywood films was based, will be postponed until a future date. In its' place, USP will present "A Little House Christmas at Plum Creek," directed by Arvin Van Zante.
"A Little House Christmas at Plum Creek" is based on the popular Laura Ingalls Wilder series. In the play, the Ingalls family is preparing for Christmas in the harsh Minnesota prairie. It is cold and lonely with few people around save the Norwegian family nearby. When Pa leaves for town and a blizzard bears down, the women must wait and pray that he is safe and will return in time for Christmas.
The show has parts for 2 adult males, 3 adult females, 3 girls and 1 boy (ages 7-12). Audition dates have not been set and perusal scripts are not yet available. Please check back at www.unionstreetplayers.com for updated information as it becomes available. Production dates will be Dec 3-6.
The members of USP decided to make the change, feeling that "Little House Christmas at Plum Creek" would be more suitable for traditional family audiences in the Christmas season. "Sabrina Fair," it was decided, would be more suitable for a Spring or Summer audience. USP's 2010 season is already set, so the earliest "Sabrina Fair" would be produced is 2011.
