Auditions for "Death in High Heels"

  • Theater an der Marschnerstraße (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

Saturday 17 November, 2pm to 5pm at Theater an der Marschnerstraße

Production dates: 13 to 23 February 2019

Director Mathilde Berry is looking for for 7 women (age range 18 up to 50ish) and 3 men (30ish to 60ish).

The play is set in a 1937 fashion house: it's a big day at Christophe et Cie, a small couture house off Regent Street. Mr Bevan will announce which of his staff he is sending to France to be general manager of a new branch in Deauville. Will it be the talented and elegant Miss Doon or the loyal and long-serving Miss Gregory? Perhaps senior saleswoman Irene or showroom manager Dorian will get the job. Events take a dramatic turn over a lunch of rabbit curry when Miss Doon collapses and dies, poisoned by the oxalic acid crystals that another employee, Rachel, has been using to clean her hat. Inspector Charlesworth and Sergeant Wyler have a murder enquiry on their hands.

Behind the glamour and gossip of a 1930s fashion house, secrets and lies are rife and more than one person may have harboured resentment towards Miss Doon.

Richard Harris's thrilling play is based on Christianna Brand's debut crime novel.

Auditions for The Ladykillers

For our June production (6 to 16 June): "The Ladykillers", a classic black comedy, directed by Trevor Ferdy, we are looking for:

5 to 6 male and 3 to 2 female actors as well as 4 to 6 extras playing old ladies who watch a music concert.

About the play: Mrs Wilberforce, a sweet, but strict old lady, is pitted against a gang of criminal misfits posing as amateur musicians renting rooms in her lopsided house. The villains plot to involve her, unwittingly, in their brilliantly conceived heist job. This 2011 stage adaptation from the comedy film of the mid-fifties was penned by Irish television writer Graham Linehan, who is renowned for such sitcoms as "Father Ted", "Black Books" and "The IT Crowd".
