Auditions for The Murder Room (5/30/2012)
This is a FREE Event
New Direction Community Theater announces Auditions for The Murder Room". It is billed as a fast-paced British comedy that mixes elements of farce and a good old-fashioned whodunnit. Playwright Jack Sharkey uses words and clever repartee like "Noises Off" uses doors. The characters throw one-liners and confusing questions back and forth with ease and when they are comfortable with letting the script be funny, the audience receives the benefit. "The Murder Room" has also been described as Abbot and Costello meets Agatha Christie, with a little Monty Python thrown in. One of the funniest aspects of the production, in fact, are the "Who's on First Base"-like bits of banter that are sprinkled throughout the comedy. If you are interested in auditioning for Murder Room- Auditions will be held : May 30th from 7pm-9pm at Southern Community Center May 30th also will hold a workshop on how to Audition!!!
