Auditions will take place Saturday, Dec. 17, from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. at Split Vision Studios (300-A Aspen Road). For audition time and sides, please email your pics and résumés to director Holly Adams at For more details, go to

Idiot Box: “I Double Dog Dare Ya!”

Still getting into the holiday spirit? I’ve got the ticket for you. KiMo Theatre is hosting a screening of the classic comedy A Christmas Story on Friday, Dec. 16, beginning at 7:30 p.m. Based on the short stories of humorist Jean Shepherd and directed by Bob Clark ( Porky’s … no, really), the wickedly funny film about bunny suits, scary Santas, turkey-scarfing dogs and “a Red Ryder BB gun with a compass in the stock and this thing which tells time” has become something of an annual holiday tradition. Tickets are $5 to $10, and proceeds will go to help fund next year’s Albuquerque Film Festival. Bring a toy for the Toys for Tots drive and you’ll get free popcorn at the KiMo concession stand.

Idiot Box: Lawyer Up

Sure, you’re a well-paid lawyer … but what you really want to do is be on TV. Am I right? Good news. An Emmy Award-winning producer will be shooting a pilot for a docu-reality show featuring real lawyers, law students and private investigators right here in New Mexico. The show will be based around “fascinating real criminal cases in and around New Mexico.” The cast will be divided into two teams—prosecutors and defense—who will present and defend their positions. Producers are on the lookout for “lawyers, law students and private investigators who are enthusiastic, passionate about the law and want to make a difference.” Proposed cast members would “work either side of the case while engaging in spirited competition and fully exploiting the drama of the criminal process.” Sounds like “Law & Order” meets “Operation Repo.” If you’re interested, email your bio and photo to Lia Friesem an and JD Herrera at
