Welcome Back, Valley Rep!



After the success of the world premiere of Glenn Reese’s Stories From Sweater Season this November at Asnuntuck Community College, Valley Repertory Company is thrilled to announce auditions for the Spring 2023 show, Holidazed written by Bailly Morse. The Valley Repertory Company will hold open auditions for this two-act comedy Tuesday February 7th starting at 6:30pm.

It is the story of Francine, who discovers her two children will not be coming home from college for any of the holidays, so she decides to host a year’s worth of holidays in the week before they leave for school. To add to her mayhem, her rebellious octogenarian mother keeps sneaking out of the house, her ex-husband arrives unexpectedly with his girlfriend, and she starts having feelings for her handyman. As Francine’s holiday celebrations escalate into the absurd, she ponders the question: What will she do with herself when her children are gone, and the holidays are over?


The cast of eight includes roles for three adult women, three adult men, and two teenagers (1 male, 1 female). Auditions will be held in the Asnuntuck Community College Auditorium, 170 Elm Street, Enfield. Performance dates are May 12, 13, 19, 20. Please direct all inquiries via email to director Glenn Reese at reesetheatricals@gmail.com.
