Newburgh Community Theater Holding Auditions for Upcoming Murder Mystery July 30-31
The Newburgh Community Theater will be staging a performance of the murder mystery, You Have the Right to Remain Dead later this Fall, and they'll be looking to fill the roles during auditions coming up next week (July 30th and 31st, 2019).
The play is a classic "whodunit" that allows the audience to play along to determine who committed the crime. Here's the complete synopsis from Dramatic Publishing:
You've just settled down in a theatre to solve an audience-participation murder mystery. The narrator comes out and gives you a few "ins and outs" on what to look for in the play. The show starts and you meet Fat Daddy, a rich but vindictive southern gentleman with an equally conniving and scheming family. So you know who's going to die, right? But who will the murderer be? Will it be Sweet Mama, Daddy's pandering wife; Hyacinth, the daughter who's always cleaning the family firearms; Earl the worm, or his overly amorous wife, Savannah; or Clete, the sullen handyman who, for some reason, is in the will? Then Fat Daddy is discovered, dead as a hammer. Except the corpse isn't Daddy's—it's the narrator's! The director comes on stage and the police arrive. Now you have to figure out which of the actors murdered the narrator. And not only are you questioning the cast, but they are questioning you! Yes, you are a suspect as well! This frantic mystery-comedy will have audiences guessing until the last clue is dropped and the last ham overacts.
There are spots for 10 actors and actresses, six of which will play dual roles within the play.
Auditions will take place at the Newburgh Library on Bell Road from 6:30 - 8:00 p.m. on both Tuesday, July 30th and Wednesday, July 31st. The show will run September 27th and 28th and again October 4th and 5th.
Break a leg!
