Audition Notice -- The Game's Afoot

Audition Notice -- The Game's Afoot

Spend Christmas with “The World’s Greatest Detective!”

Auditions for The Adobe Theater’s 2015 Christmas Show The Game’s Afoot! (or Holmes for The Holidays), by Ken Ludwig, will be held October 10th & 11th, 2015 at The Adobe Rehearsal space in The Unser Racing Museum (1776 West Montano). When entering the Museum grounds, the rehearsal space will be in the building to your right.

Auditions are from 2pm to 5pm both days, and will consist of cold readings from the script and other materials. An English accent is used is the first part of the show.

Named the “Best Mystery Play of 2012” by The Mystery Writers of America, The Game’s Afoot (or Holmes for The Holidays) is a fast-paced ensemble piece filled with great roles, and keeps everyone guessing "who done it?" right up the very end of the show!

Set in December, 1936, Broadway star William Gillette, acclaimed the world over for his portrayal of ‘The Great Detective’ in the play Sherlock Holmes, has invited his fellow cast-members to spend the holiday weekend at his home. Things start off well enough, but quickly turn sour when one of the guests is stabbed to death! Who did it? Hard to say, since everyone there has motive, means, and plenty of opportunity! Isolated and unsure who he can trust, Gillette adopts the character of his beloved Sherlock Holmes to try and solve the mystery. Accusations abound! Alibis crumble! Secrets are revealed! And then a real detective shows up!

Director Kathleen Welker is looking to fill the following roles:

William Gillette (Sherlock Holmes) – Able to play late 40’s to early 50’s.
Martha Gillette (William’s Mother) – Able to play early to mid-70’s.
Felix Geisel (Moriarty) – mid-to late 30’s.
Madge Geisel (Marian) – late 20’s to early 30’s.
Simon Bright (Zerlinsky) – mid to late 20’s.
Aggie Wheeler (Alice) – mid- to late 20’s.
