Auditions for "Get Thee Behind Me, Santa"

An Inexcusably Filthy Children's Time-Travel Musical for Adults Only

"...I leaned back in my chair and tried to wash away the uncomplicated flavors of shame, bile, and monkey spit..."


It’s December 21st, 2012, and something’s gone terribly wrong with the timeline. Now it’s up to Saint Nicholas, a soft-boiled detective, and an unknown carpenter’s son named Jesus of Nazareth to set things right in this giddily blasphemous collection of musical and literary parodies!
