The Astor Street Opry Company announces auditions for their fall production “The Farndale Housing Estate Townswomen's Guild Dramatic Society Murder Mystery or Murder at Checkmate Manor” written by David McGillivray and Walter Zerlin Jr. and produced with permission by Samuel French Ltd.
Directed by Edward James with Production Management by Kay Beitzel this hilarious tribute to amateur theatre everywhere is a play-within-a-play as we meet the ladies who will perform before the play itself begins and see their rivalries. Once the opening night comes almost everything that could go wrong, does, with collapsing scenery, missed cues, forgotten lines and quick costume changes misfire, as the ladies try to present their cunning whodunit, "Murder At Checkmate Manor."
The challenging and fun parts include one man and four women ages 18 and up playing 14 different roles! Rehearsals begin September 3rd the ASOC Playhouse.
The show runs Fridays and Saturday evenings October 11th to 26th with one Sunday Matinee on the 20th. Tickets are only $15.00 to 8.00. All proceeds go towards helping ASOC Production Committee to fund new productions and activities! And don’t forget! All tickets are only $5.00 on Friday nights!
