WOH auditioning for murder-mystery spoof

By From page A11 | October 23, 2013

Auditions will be held for the murder-mystery spoof “Something’s Afoot” at 7 p.m. Sunday and Monday, Oct. 27-28, at the Woodland Opera House, 340 Second St. in Woodland.

WOH is seeking a company of inventive and fearless actors-singers with strong comedic abilities. Roles are available for six men and four women.

Set in England in 1935, this murder-mystery musical spoofs detective stories. The cast is a set of British stock characters typically found in the works of Agatha Christie.

Actors should be prepared to sing 16 to 32 measures of a musical selection of their choice. An accompanist will be provided. The musical style of the show touches on many influences of the 1920s and ’30s, from torchy to vaudevillian and on. There will be readings from the script and a movement portion of the audition.

Rehearsals will be at 7 p.m. Sundays through Thursdays, beginning the second week of November. The show opens Jan. 10 and runs through Feb. 2, at 7:30 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays and 2 p.m. Sundays, with an additional matinee on Saturday, Jan. 25.

There will be rehearsals surrounding, but not including Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Year’s Day.

The show is directed by Jason Hammond, with vocal direction by Deborah Hammond, and music direction by Jia-Min Rosendale. For information, contact the director at [email protected].
