Audition Reminder / Casting Call – Bloody Murder

Mystery/Comedy by Ed Sala
Directed by Lori Thul
AUDITIONS: Jan 23/24, 6-8pm, at Hutchinson Center for the Arts

Performances at Hutchinson Center for the Arts, March 30-April 1, and April 6-8, 2017.

A group of the usual British murder-mystery types gather for a weekend retreat at the sumptuous country estate of the esteemed Lady Somerset. There’s the major who served in India; the inebriated, fading actor; the innocent ingénue; the exotic lady in red; the mysterious Chinese gentleman; the rich dowager aunt; and her faithful maid and worthless nephew. Suddenly, one of them dies of poison! Well, of course. Oh what fun! But wait…Her Ladyship refuses to summon the police! She says she won’t go through all this, again. All what, again? And why were they all invited here in the first place? Is this actually just another formulaic, all-too-predictable mystery story? Or is it something diabolically different? Agatha Christie meets Pirandello, as characters rebel against their author. It’s bloody murder!

This is sure to be a fun play for both seasoned actors and those wanting to give theatre a try. There are several smaller parts besides the characters mentioned above. We need 6-12 actors, men and women, a variety of ages, all adults.

Auditions will be held January 23 & 24, 2017, at Hutchinson Center for the Arts, from 6-8pm. Come ready to read and have some fun! Bring your calendar to provide possible conflicts for rehearsals.
