GRRC Presents Auditions for

A Murder Is Announced
by Agatha Christie.
Audition: Sunday September 28 2-5 pm; Monday Sept 29 6-9 pm
GRRC is proud to announce that Dr. Allan O’Grady Cuseo has agreed to direct another Agatha Christie mystery. Dr. Cuseo is known as an Agatha Christie expert, having directed almost the entire body of her work. Performances will be at RAPA’s East End Theatre November 14-22 2014. Rehearsals begin in October weekend days and Monday/Tuesday evenings.
A murder is announced in the newspaper Gazette in the dizzy town of Chipping Cleghorn. Someone must be putting an invitation for a game in the paper. Naturally, a murderer would not place an ad in the paper announcing their murder, right? However dangerous as it might be, it sparks the interest of the people in town. With a specific date and time announced in the paper, the neighbors arrive at the home of Miss Blacklock (“Little Paddocks”). At 6:30, the lights cut out. After gunshots ring out, the people at Little Paddocks quickly realize that announcement was NOT a game. When the lights come on, Miss Blacklock has an ear grazed by a bullet, and an unknown man lays breathless on the floor with a gun next to him.
A full on investigation takes place. The detectives must consider everybody a possible suspect. Who is the man dead on the floor? Did anyone know him? Was he trying to shoot at anyone in particular? Did he die from a suicide or an accident? Did anyone have anything worth killing for? Is everybody what they seem?
Some roles have been cast from the GRRC Repertory Company. Open roles include:

Julia Simmons 20-30’s (brother and sister)
Patrick Simmons 20-30’s (brother and sister)
Mitzi (the Maid) any age – must do an accent
Miss Marple 50-80’s
Phillipa Haynes 30-40’s sophisticated
Inspector Craddock 40-70’s
Sergeant Mellors 20-40’s

Prepare a 2-3 minute monologue. Please bring a head-shot and resume, if available.
