Those interested in auditioning should be prepared to do readings from the script. Final choices will be made after the Thursday auditions.
There are already several people who have asked to be a part of the production but it is the policy of the theater not to actually cast the play until all those interested in acting in the roles mentioned above, have an opportunity to try out for the parts.
The owners of the theater wish to remind individuals who want to play the parts that rehearsals will take place in evenings and sometimes on weekends and there will be 6 performances of "Deathtrap" on 2 successive weekends, Fridays and Saturdays at 7:00 PM, the 4th, and 5th - 11th and12th and on Sundays at 2:00 PM the 6th and 13th of April.
