Holiday Hullabaloo is looking for the following cast members:

Suzy Snowflake:


Ages:17 -36

Suzy is a snowflake with a playful personality. She is childlike and celebrates the fun of winter.  The Holiday Hullabaloo Suzy will need to be full of the winter spirit, happy, cheerful, and ready to twirl and dance as she greets our guests.

The Sugar Plum Fairy:


Ages: 17-36 

The Sugar Plum Fairy is a small and beautiful Fairy (sprite) of flora and fauna. She brings candy and sprinkles sugar (fairy dust) graciously over the kingdom of Holiday Hullabaloo. The Holiday Hullabaloo Sugar Plum Fairy will need to be oh-so-sweet, playful, and ready to spread Holiday Cheer.

Mrs. Claus:

Mrs. Claus is the legendary wife of Santa Claus, the Christmas gift-bringer in Christmas tradition. She is known for making cookies with the elves, caring for the reindeer, and preparing toys with her husband. The Holiday Hullabaloo Mrs. Claus will need to be a grandmother figure, always joyful and ready to help our littlest of guests decorate her special Holiday Hullabaloo cookies.

Santa Claus:


Ages: 30+ 

Santa Claus is said to live at the North Pole with his wife, where he spends the year making toys with the help of his elves. There he receives letters from children asking for Christmas gifts. On Christmas Eve he loads his sleigh with toys and flies around the world, drawn by eight reindeer, stopping at each child’s house; he slides down the chimney and leaves the gifts, refreshing himself with the milk and cookies left for him by the household’s children.  The Holiday Hullabaloo Santa Claus will need to be the jolliest Santa in town, ready to listen to the wishes of our all special guests and pose for that traditional Holiday photo with Santa.

Toy Soldier:

Male or Female

Ages: 20+

The Toy Soldier is made of wood but has come to life with the help of fairy dust from the Sugar Plum Fairy in the magical kingdom of Holiday Hullabaloo. The Holiday Hullabaloo Toy Soldier must be courageous, and protect the kingdom of Holiday Hullabaloo and all of the children who enter from those who do not believe in Santa.

Jack Frost:


Ages: 17-36 

Jack Frost is a personification of frost, ice, snow, sleet, winter, and freezing cold. He is a variant of Old Man Winter who is held responsible for frosty weather, nipping the fingers and toes in such weather, and leaving fern-like patterns on cold windows in winter. The Holiday Hullabaloo Jack Frost is a sprite-like character, and a mischief-maker, ready to make our guests laugh, despite the cold.
