AUDITIONS TONIGHT FOR FARNDALE COMEDY AT THEATRE 29

No sooner does one play get on the boards at Theatre 29, then it’s time to gear up for the next production. Dan Stork has the audition call for “Murder at Checkmate Manor”…
Director Marty Neider has announced auditions are set for Theatre 29’s second show of the 2014 season. A Farndale Murder Mystery, “Murder at Checkmate Manor.” Auditions are on Monday, January 13, at 6 p.m. at Theatre 29 at 73637 Sullivan Road, Twentynine Palms. This play is a fast-paced (at times) comedic farce about 5 British ladies who fearlessly take on big plays and then struggle with everything from costume changes, injured actors, missed lines, missed cues and sets falling down, but in the tradition of the British, “Stiff Upper Lip and all that,” they carry on and manage to get through the process. There is a fashion show in the middle of the play, not to mention the home movie that starts out the show, and a prize for the patron who pays close attention to what is going on in the play and answers the most questions correctly, and a surprise twist at the end. There are four female roles and one male role, for actors from mid-20’s to their 60’s. The roles that are being cast and selected sides are available at theatre29.org. The director is looking for English accents, good comedic timing, and the ability to play the role of a “bad” actor. All roles are open for casting. Rehearsals run from January 14 to February 27. Opening night is February 28, and will run until March 27 with two Sunday matinees. People interested in volunteering for set building, lighting and sound, and backstage support, are also invited to come to the audition session.
