Two Male Actors Required For Amateur Agatha Christie Production

Our next production is A MURDER IS ANNOUNCED by Agatha Christie.

PLEASE NOTE – THESE ROLES ARE UNPAID

THE SYNOPSIS

An announcement in the local paper states the time and place when a murder is to occur in Miss Blacklock’s Victorian house. The victim is not one of the house’s several occupants, but an unexpected and unknown visitor. What follows is a classic Christie puzzle of mixed motives, concealed identities, a second death, a determined Inspector grimly following the twists and turns, and Miss Marple on hand to provide the final solution at some risk to herself in a dramatic confrontation just before the final curtain.

Due to our younger male members being unavailable for this production, we are looking to fill the roles listed below.

We will be performing the play over 4 nights during the May/June 2018 half term holidays from Wednesday 30th May until Saturday 2nd June.

Auditions and casting for the other roles have already taken place but if you are interested in a part, please do get in touch and we will invite you along to our next meeting (these take place on Wednesday evenings) in Charlton.

Please send through the appropriate criteria – a picture and phone number – along with any links to videos you may wish to share with us of yourself performing (though this is not essential).

If we are happy with your submission, you will be invited to attend our next meeting.
