A Theatre group is holding auditions for a Murder Mystery called “Death of A Disco Dancer”. All of the typical actors show up to audition:

There is Mia Monahan – the militant method actress,

Amber Frost- the ditzy Drama queen,

Chad – the energetic actor who never seems to get a part in anything,

Alan- the accomplished Theatre Major who works at a fast food place in the mean time,

Troy May – the ego-centric actor who always gets a role and his gorgeous assistant Tantanya who holds his imported bottled water and carries his Portfolio,

And last but not least, Mrs. Needleman and her precious daughter Julie , fresh from the Little Miss Pumpkin Pageant finals.

The auditions get underway without too many problems, well a few.. Well, all right, you see, the thing is.. the Director Vivian Vinderlou and assistant director Reed Moore have a bit of the problem with “script”. The problem is they don’t have enough copies for everyone. And the bigger problem is they don’t actually have a finished script.

Jim Culter- the playwright arrives in the nick of time with a few more copies and a few more finished pages just as one of the actors mysteriously dies. As luck would have it, Jim has brought Inspector Bonnie Brauvera along to the auditions to serve as Technical advisor for the play. Perhaps the investigation into this “mysterious death” will inspire the playwright and help him finish the play. After all, there is a read-through on Monday.

An Audition for a Murder by Lee Mueller will be performed Thursdays through Sundays from June 7th to 10th and 14th – 17th at the Hearn Stage at the Kress Theatre.  Thursday through Saturday performances begin at 7:30 PM, and Sunday matinees begin at 2:30 PM.

General Admission tickets are $15, Senior (60+) & Military tickets are $12, Students tickets are $7, and Thursday night tickets are only $5.
