KP Announces Open Auditions for Oscar Wilde Comedy
Mundelein-based Kirk Players, entering their 54th season, is excited to announce open auditions for Lord Arthur Savile’s Crime, a comedy based on the short story by Oscar Wilde, adapted for the stage by Constance Cox.
Open auditions will be held Monday, August 5, and Wednesday, August 7 from 7-10pm at St Andrew’s Lutheran Church, 10 S. Lake Street in Mundelein. The play offers roles for 5 men and 5 women. Callbacks, if needed, will be on Thursday, August 8.
Lord Arthur Savile’s Crime is a high-brow, frolicsome comedy, set in Victorian England. It centers on the ill-conceived and farcically mis-executed plot of slightly dim-witted Lord Arthur to commit murder, as foretold by his palm reader, before he marries the lovely Sybil Merton and enjoys a blissful life.
Show dates are Friday, October 4 and Saturday, October 5 at 7:30pm, and Saturday, October 5 and Sunday, October 6 at 2pm at Mundelein High School Theatre.
