About the Play: The most beloved Christmas carol, "Silent Night," was written almost by accident. A young priest, an Austrian village and a damaged organ all took part in the creation of this classic hymn. With a bit of embellishment, some memorable characters, and favorite holiday tunes, this staging of the almost catastrophe will be a delight for the whole family!

Thank you all for auditioning! I'm looking forward to seeing this play come to life with this great cast!

Our cast could really use a couple more adults, especially women. They would sing with the whole cast but not have any lines. Any interested parents, please let me know.

Please email silentnight@salineareaplayers.org to accept or decline your role. Once the cast list is finalized, we will send out an email with forms for membership, t-shirts, and script information. Since we have a few weeks before our first rehearsal (Tuesday, Oct. 24th, 7 p.m. at Fifth Corner), we'd like to get the scripts to you as soon as possible so you could learn your lines even before we begin rehearsing!

Hope to see you at the Oliver performances, October 20-22 at Saline High School!
