Using your Ticket for a Future Show
To use your ticket for a future show you must let us know via email by October 31st at email@example.com We will send you back a gift certificate which will expire at the end of 2024. When you want to use your gift certificate you can go to our website www.brunswicklittletheatre.com log into or create an account and choose the play and performance date you want to attend. Instead of a credit card you will use your gift certificate number.
We apologize for this unforeseen inconvenience. We explored many options to ensure that our audiences could enjoy this show. However, our main priority is the health and welfare of our actors, crew and audiences while continuing to provide quality entertainment for Brunswick County. Thank you for your understanding.

Time to audition for Brunswick Little Theatre’s final production of 2023!
Once again BLT is presenting a holiday show that is extremely humorous and full of heart. The roles are all challenging and will be a ton of fun to perform. The show is “Almighty Bob” by Tom Mula and will be directed by John D’Amato
Synopsis: Bob is being checked into a nursing home. Sometimes he thinks he's God. And sometimes he's right. Bob has become too much of a handful for his daughter Karen, so they're trying a trial period at Dr. Wally's nursing home—with miraculous results!
Character Breakdown: (Ages listed are the characters appearance so if you can play that age, you will be considered):
Bob: 70 + man, charming, funny, powerful with a huge heart. Older than he wants to be. Is he God?
Karen (Bob’s Daughter): 30- to 50-year-old businesswoman. Is efficient and nice.
Dr. Wally: 30- to 50-year-old male doctor who runs the assisted living home. Is a good person but not very assertive.
Colleen: 25- to 60-year-old female social worker. She is fun! She sings a little also. Could she be an angel?
JoeyJoJo: 18 + female or male: Threatening looking person but isn’t. Is this person the “Angel of Death”?
Claire: 65 + female. At one point she uses a walker but was a fireball in her time. She sings a bit and does a little dance (could be a soft shoe and maybe a few Motown moves)
Mr. Carmichael: 30- to 65-year-old male. Never raises his voice. He’d make a good undertaker. Underneath, he is not a very nice man.
One actress (30 +) will play the following: Gladys (larger role) – the crusty cook who was probably a marine, Mrs. Parrish (Cameo) –residence of the nursing home and Nurse Ann (Cameo)
