Waterworks set Rehearsal for Murder auditions

Published 8:16 am Thursday, September 3, 2015

The Waterworks Players next production is Rehearsal for Murder.  Adapted to the stage by D.D. Brooke, Rehearsal for Murder was originally a television play by Richard Levinson and William Link. This is a thrilling “theatrical” mystery in which the playhouse becomes the set for the production.

When Monica is found dead from an apparent suicide after the opening night of her Broadway stage debut, playwright Alex Dennison is left heartbroken. She was not only the beautiful leading lady of his production, but also his fiancée.

On the first anniversary of Monica’s death, Alex gathers the cast and crew from that ill-fated night in the same Broadway theatre. Ostensibly Alex reads a new play he is working, a mystery in which a famous actress is killed. As the reading progresses, the scenes seem to be uncomfortably close to actual encounters they might have had with Monica. When pressed, Alex finally reveals that he believes his fiancée was murdered and that someone at the theater is her killer.

Auditions will be held at 7:30 p.m. on Sunday, Monday and Tuesday at the Waterworks Theater.  Auditions will consist of readings from the script.  Waterworks Players are looking for nine actors and six actresses age 18 and up.  The show runs October 16, 17, 23 and 24 at 8 p.m.
