SOAP Theatre will be hosting open auditions for their pre-Christmas production of Bob's your Elf at the following times:

  - Wed. September 4 at 7:00 pm - Big Blue Building - 5840 Airport St. Oliver
  -Thu. September 5 at 7:00 pm  - Arts Centre, Upstairs - 8713 Main St. Osoyoos


“You’re bringin’ us down Bob. You’re bummin’ us out…and that’s why I’m sending you away,” said Santa. Where does he send Bob? What does Bob do? What will be Bob’s future as an elf?

Written by Norm Foster, one of Canada’s more prolific playwrights, Bob’s Your Elf is the perfect comedy for the holiday season. You will recognize The Christmas Carol, Rudolph the Red Nose Reindeer, The Night Before Christmas, and even the Nativity, as the Thithleville Thespians try to put on a Christmas play that needs some serious work. In comes Bob, a real live Elf, sent by Santa to save the day.

​Unfortunately, Bob is one miserable, incompetent Elf who first needs to learn a lesson or two about the Christmas spirit. A play full of laughs and just in time for Christmas; suitable for all ages.​


The script calls for six actors: 4 male and 2 female. No preparation is necessary for these auditions. Just come on out!

Bob's Your Elf is booked to play five performances at the Venables Theatre between November 29 and December 7, 2019.

Rehearsals will begin as soon as cast is selected in September.

Bob's Your Elf
November 29 to December 7
     Bob the Elf is banished from the North Pole for his bad attitude. Santa sends him to help with a small-town Christmas pageant, where he meets a group of bumbling actors trying to put on Christmas show.
     Of course, undecided on a theme, they combine the Nativity, A Christmas Carol, Rudolph The Red-Nosed Reindeer and The Night Before Christmas into one show.
     This is a hilarious family comedy filled with holiday spirit.

Born Yesterday
February 7 to February 15
     Just when politics has lost its sense of humour, in rides Billie Dawn on a breath of fresh air. Her smarts are buried under layers of satin and showgirl sass but are highly combustible. When her powerful and shady boyfriend, Harry Brock, sets out to buy a senator, he decides Billie needs a bit more class and he hires journalist, Paul Verrall, to make her appear more intelligent.
     But a little education can go a long way, and Billie may be smarter than her “friends” give her credit for. A hilarious and (though written and set in 1946) a timely parody of politics and perceptions in today’s society.
     Suitable for ages 13 and older.

Flaming Idiots
April 24 to May 2
     Carl and Phil aren’t moving up at the post office and believe that big money is waiting for people with entrepreneurial spirit and sound business judgement. They have lots of the spirit but little of the judgement, and their new restaurant flounders.
     Zippy’s, a popular crosstown spot, has been crowded ever since a notorious mobster was shot there over 20 years ago. What if someone could get murdered in their restaurant?
     A farce, suitable for all ages.
