Set at "Second Chances" thrift shop, the production is a quirky, heartwarming tale of friendship, courage and second chances. Thrift shop employees and eclectic shoppers breather life into the treasures that are within the walls, connecting to each other through their precious "finds"... while employees work their hardest to make the thrift shop profitable to keep the creditors away from their door!!
This musical comedy will touch souls uniquely; filled with love, laughter, and tears brought about by a cast of characters who frequent and shop in this fictional place that, like with all families, face trials and tribulations. Can the staff, while figuring out the changing world, save their thrift shop from being closed?
"Thift shop" on stage with items for sale! Go shopping before & after the show and intermission! Silent auction might be in the mic too!

The Nutcracker: A Christmas Play
John T. Hanaway, Director
Bethany Haitsma, Assistant Director
Regional Performing Arts Company’s production of The Nutcracker: A Christmas Play is slated for December 13-15, 2019. Auditions for this play are October 13, 2019 from 3PM to 5PM, at Trinity United Methodist Church in Hobart (3561 Randolph St, Hobart, Indiana 46342).
The legend of the wonderful Nutcracker is now available in this captivating play. At a gala Christmas Eve party, Clara’s godfather presents her with an amazing Nutcracker in the form of a wooden soldier. Too excited to sleep, she suddenly finds the Nutcracker brought to life. He tells her he is a prince under the wicked enchantment of the Mouse King, and she joins him in a series of adventures in strange lands as he seeks to regain his throne. When she wakes, she finds the Nutcracker gone. Was it a dream or not? Then her godfather returns with his nephew—who just happens to look exactly like the prince!
From the Directors
This version of the nutcracker is not the ballet; but rather a play version. We find that this is equally as fun and keeps with the tradition in the same way as the ballet and has a wonderful story that some may not have picked up on. There will be some light movement/dancing in the production but not all characters will need to dance, and there will also be stage combat for this production as well.
To prepare for the auditions we have prepared audition sides that we will be using so you can get prepared. Please read through them for all the characters as you may be asked to read more than one. It is strongly recommended that you be able to read in order to audition for this production.
At auditions come prepared to read from these sides. We will have copies available at auditions so do not worry about providing your own. Also please come with clothes that you can move in and be prepared to do some follow along with movement for us.
We are extremely excited about this holiday production and can’t wait to get started!
