Kirk Players is excited to announce auditions for Murdered to Death by Peter Gordon. This hilarious spoof of the best of Agatha Christie traditions is set in a country manor house in the 1930's, with an assembled cast of characters guaranteed to delight—Bunting, the butler; an English Colonel with the prerequisite stiff upper lip; a shady French art dealer and his moll; the bumbling local inspector and a well-meaning local sleuth who seems to attract murder wherever she goes—they’re all here, and all caught up in the side-splitting antics which follow a mysterious death. And it soon becomes clear that the murderer isn’t finished yet, but will the murderer be unmasked before everyone else has met their doom, or will readers and audiences die laughing first?
Auditions for the Kirk Players production of Murdered to Death are on Monday, July 24 and Wednesday, July 26 at St. Andrew Church in Mundelein (10 S. Lake St.). You will be assigned a time slot on or before Saturday, July 22. Callbacks (if needed) will be on Thursday, July 27.
Please complete the audition form including all conflicts. This will be a cold reading. You will be assigned a time slot for a small group audition between 7-10 PM on Monday and/or Wednesday.
Rehearsals are from 7-10 on Monday, Wednesday, and Thursday from July 31 through September 21. Performances are Friday-Sunday, September 22-24. There may be a sneak preview on September 10.
If you are not cast, we welcome you to join us as a crew lead or member. We are looking for a Stage Manager, Assistant Stage Manager, Tech Director, Set Designer in addition to lights, sound, costumes and props.
The show is being directed by Anna Lieberman. This is going to be a very fun show. Looking forward to seeing you at auditions!
