‘A Murder is Announced’ auditions coming to Community Players

August 17, 2018

Community Players, in Beatrice, will hold auditions for the Agatha Christie mystery “A Murder is Announced,” Aug. 27 and 28 beginning at 7 p.m. Auditions will be held at the Players Theater, 412 Ella St., Beatrice.

The show requires a cast of 5 men and 7 women. Those auditioning will be asked to read from the script. Anyone interested in auditioning is encouraged to sign up for an audition slot on-line (beatricecommunityplayers.com). The show will perform Oct. 12-14, 19-21 in Beatrice, and Oct. 26-28 in Lincoln at the Lincoln Community Playhouse.

When an announcement in the local paper states the time and place when a murder is to occur in Miss Blacklock’s Victorian house, what follows is a classic Agatha Christie puzzle of mixed motives and concealed identities, with Miss Marple on hand to provide the final solution just before the final curtain. Jamie Ulmer, Community Players managing artistic director, will direct the production.

Community Players auditions are open to anyone, and there is no charge to participate in the cast or crew of a show. Individuals interested in participating in a production crew, such as set painting, lights, set construction, costume, or makeup are encouraged to contact the theater or fill out an online volunteer application form at the theater’s web site.
