Seeking Actors for Fun Murder Mystery Theater (The Reserve Restaurant and Others)

Thanks for all the interest! I had some trouble with email getting through so am listing this again. We have a bunch of shows coming up so would definitely love to hear from you. (FYI, here's a listing of upcoming shows at The Reserve, we also have other gigs coming up including birthday parties, etc. and there will be more shows added to this list soon: http://www.grimprov.com/murder-mystery-dinners/or/portland/info )

Our current theme is called Crime and Pun-ishment and has a 20's mobster theme, with plenty of campy silliness thrown in. We are auditioning for a Femme Fatal (ideally someone who can either sing magnificently or be funny trying), a Mob Sub-Boss, and a Detective (gotta have a mind for lots of layers of information and rules). You've gotta be confident, fun, hard working, and really love people. This is a lot like a giant, interactive game of Clue.

Please respond through link above and I'll send the detailed info, including pay, what specifically is involved, what we're looking for, etc. Please read all that carefully and then let me know if you are interested and/or have further questions. Resumes (need not be formal, but should include the relevant experience and education) and headshots are appreciated. Next is a phone interview and then auditions following.

1 PM to 4 PM

Sandy Actors Theatre
39181 Pioneer Ave. (behind Ace Hardware)
Sandy, OR 97055



Directed by Berta Limbaugh

A classic by the king of Broadway comedy.   Two aging vaudevillians who haven’t spoken for 40 years, attempt a grudging reunion for a TV special.  The upshot is a flood of memories, miseries, and, most of all, laughs.

         “Another hit for Simon in a shrewdly balanced, splendid and rather touching slice of the show biz life.” – New York Daily News

All roles available:

1. Willie Clark – Cantankerous, but lovable, former vaudeville and radio entertainer.           Shabby, scattered, stuck in his ways, but at the same time, hilarious and endearing.          Age: 70’s

2. Al Lewis – Willie’s former vaudeville partner; estranged from Willie because he left the          “act” for family, solitude, and “normal” society.  Age: 70’s

3. Ben Silverman – Willie’s nephew, agent, and only relation.  Caring and faithful, but          frustrated with Willie’s obstinacy.  Age: 30’s--40’s

4. Young Nurse – Attractive and voluptuous, but a little slow on the uptake.  Age: 20’s

5. Older Nurse – No-nonsense, sharp-tongued, and full of “attitude”.  Willie has met his          match in her.  Age: 40’s-60’s

6. Eddie/Patient  – Assistant Director for Willie and Al’s TV reunion show.  Frazzled and          overwhelmed.  Doubles as Patient in TV comedy sketch.  Age: 20’s-40’s

7. Voices (offstage) – TV Director, Announcer, TV Voice– Strong, commanding, and          able to vary for characterization       

Callbacks (if necessary): Monday, March 11, 2013

Rehearsals begin the week of April 14, 2013

Performance Dates:  May 31, 2012 – June 23, 2013

Auditions will be cold readings from the scripts.  Headshots, resumes, and/or monologues are welcome, but not required.  All are welcome and no experience is necessary.

We also are recruiting crew positions.  If interested, please attend the auditions.

Sandy Actors Theatre provides limited stipends to all cast and crew to cover expenses for travel, etc.
