Welcome to The Roaring Twenties and The Shanghai Club!
Prohibition rules the land!
Gangsters & Speakeasy owners rule it!

Grab some friends and join in the fun this weekend at
Portland's notorious Speakeasy, The Shanghai Club,
where the gin is cold & the piano's hot!

Grab a cup of 'giggle-water' gals and fellas &
have a blast, but watch your backs!
Somebody's going to get bumped off over dinner!
(otherwise it's just dinner and how fun is that?)

Can YOU figure out WHODUNIT?
You'll have a killer time trying to!

Looking for energetic, friendly performers for Mystery Dinner Theatre.

Combination of script and improv, this is interactive Dinner theatre, where characters
mingle, chat and give clues to "Whodunit?!". Singers, dancers, comedians, jugglers,
acrobats and artists of all types shapes and sizes encouraged to audition!
Performances are booked private and public shows for regular dinner goers, birthday
parties and corporate parties.


Each show comes with $50 stipend, and at private parties you get fed the tasty catered
food too! We're looking to expand and provide backup for our core ensemble, to cope with
increasing production needs as we head into our busy Fall/Winter Season for the murder
mystery dinner and variety show series and need performers NOW. Lots of fun, and a great
group to work with!

Auditions will be held Monday -Wednesday October 8th-10th. If cast, come see the show

Friday the 12th, and start performing the following week! We need strong, confident,
flexible and energetic performers who are ready to hit the ground running. And have no
fear- our cast is super supportive and helps each other at every turn!

Performances are typically Friday or Saturday evenings, 6-10pm, with occasional weeknight
private shows.

Casting for Short Film

Hey there actor-people, Bryan here. We're about to start shooting an epic (46 page) short
revenge-comedy film entitled LET'S BURY THE HATCHET! (DEEP IN YOUR FACE) and I suddenly find myself having to fill some key roles that have opened up.

This movie has about 15 lead roles; it's the story of Vic Craven, a raging beast of a
man, who seeks revenge on a local theater director for a perceived slight toward his
(Vic's) daughter. Vic enlists a team of half-ass secret agents to enact his crazy plot.
Since there are two days of shooting where we have almost all the actors in a single
scene, it's been very very hard to align availability... and a couple actors have had to
drop out as a result.

This posting is for the role of Susie Craven, our main character's teenage daughter.

Susie is "going through a phase", dabbling in transcendental mediation but mainly listening to a lot
of punk rock and getting piercings.

I'm looking for a teenage girl who looks punk rock and can exude that apathetic-punk
attitude. Shaved head a big plus, but any punk hairstyle would be great. Tattoos and
piercings are big pluses as well.

NO PAY for this role unfortunately (or for any of the roles); it's that sort of uber
low-budget production. It is, however, a crazy-unique project with a lot of fun scenes,
and you'll have great fodder for your reel if you take this on.

NOTE: You must have the following availability for this role...

(1) Shooting time on 1 of the following days: the evening of Friday 10/5 or anytime on
Saturday 10/6
(2) A few hours of availability in the afternoon/evening on Friday 10/12 and Saturday
(3) One hour of availability on Friday 10/26 or Saturday 10/27
(4) A few hours of availability for the pickup days, Saturday 11/3 and Sunday 11/4

The full script is available upon request. Below are links to Rich Cashin's reel (he will
be playing the main character, Susie's father Vic) as well as a link to the previous no-
budget short we did, a link to a teaser for a short film to be released on Halloween, and
a link to the trailer for my sci-fi feature film (which is in post-production now).
