"Audition For A Murder" hit the boards again and again

When the theatrical tallies are posted at the end of the year for "Most Produced Play", per my records "An Audition For A Murder" has to be on top. Off the top of my head, I know its production this year and last year is way into the double digits. Of course, no one keeps track of produced work by independent playwrights except for the independent playwrights. At the end of the year, I'm sure a tired old musical of some type will be listed at the "most produced." 

So let me once again plug another production of "An Audition For A Murder". 


For Vacaville’s Gaslighters Theatrical Company, their stock in trade has always been ... well, stock characters played for laughs.
As it has for years, delivery of their product, melodramas to whodunits, wrapped in period costumes and often overworked English phrases to comedic effect, is what consumes the troupe today, as they prepare and rehearse their latest effort: “An Audition for a Murder.”
“We’re happy to be presenting another Lee Mueller murder-mystery,” Mary Cornelison Muehlenbruch, the Gaslighters’ president and producer of the show, said in a press release. 

“We’ve done a number of his plays over the years. They’re smartly written, funny, and our audiences have always enjoyed his storylines, and we always add our own comedy touches to make the story even funnier!”



Performances are at 8 p.m. March 31, April 1 and 7; at 7:30 p.m. April 8 (a dinner show); and at 3 p.m. April 2 and 9. All shows will be in Harbor Theater’s Nove Cabaret Theatre, 720 Main St., in downtown Suisun City.
Tickets for non-dinner shows are $20, and $39.50 for the dinner show, available by calling 628-3737 or by visiting www.vacavillegaslighters.com.
