This is a very ensemble-driven piece, there are a lot of smaller roles that will be assigned after casting. If you are cast in this show, expect to be busy! The music style of this show is pop-rock, and there are many choreographed fights.

What to prepare: Please let us know if there are specific roles you want to be seen for. Please prepare a 32 bar cut of an up-tempo pop/rock song - high energy is great - we want to see you rock out! And don’t be afraid to make big comedic choices as well.

Sign up: Please signup using the google sheet, and add your name, email, and phone number in your preferred time slot.

How to prepare your sheet music for the audition: Please bring photocopied sheet music of the song you would like to sing in the key of your choice – your music should be double sided, three hole punched and in a 3-ring binder. A tip for double siding your music: for every 2-pages of music, place the pages back-to-back and clear tape the edges together, then 3-hole punch the pages, and put them in a 3-ring binder. This helps your accompanist turn the pages while playing for you.

What to do if you love to sing but you don’t have sheet music? Sign up anyway and come to the audition. You will be asked to sing a song of your choosing acapella.

Submitting a Virtual Audition: Please film yourself performing a contemporary musical theatre or rock and roll song (2 minutes or less) with accompaniment – karaoke track is fine. Then upload your audition to youtube or vimeo and send the link to Theatre Program Director Nick Anselmo at before 12:00 pm on Sunday, August 13th for full consideration.

Seeking a Cast of Characters (see below):
• WADSWORTH, a traditional British butler in every sense: uptight, formal and "by the book." He is the driving force in the play.
• YVETTE, a loyal and sexy French maid.
• MISS SCARLET, a dry, sardonic D.C. madam, more interested in secrets than sex.
• MRS. PEACOCK, the wealthy wife of a senator. A bit batty, neurotic, and quick to hysteria.
• MRS. WHITE, a pale, morbid, and tragic woman. Mrs. White may or may not be the murderer of her five ex-husbands.
• COLONEL MUSTARD, a puffy, pompous, dense, blowhard of a military man.
• PROFESSOR PLUM, an arrogant academic, easily impressed by himself.
• MR. GREEN, a timid yet officious rule follower. He's awfully anxious.

ENSEMBLE ROLES (actors will play multiple roles):
• THE COOK, a gruff woman with a threatening presence. (Alive and Dead.)
• SINGING TELEGRAM GIRL, a tap dancer with a heart of gold. (Alive and Dead.)
• AUXILIARY SCARLET, the back of Miss Scarlet during a scene of theatrical trickery.
• BACKUP COP, backup for the Chief in the very final Cop entrance.
• MR. BODDY, a slick, Frank Sinatra, film noir-esque type fella. (Alive and Dead.)
• THE MOTORIST, a professional driver. (Alive and Dead.)
• CHIEF OF POLICE, a cop who helps to save the day.
• THE UNEXPECTED COP, a regular Joe. (Alive and Dead.)
• BACKUP COP, backup for the Chief.
