The Winters Theatre Company in Winters California will present “An Audition for Murder” on Friday, May 17, Saturday, May 18, and Sunday, May 19. “An Audition for Murder,” a comic parody of both “who-dun-it” murder mysteries and amateur theater play auditions.
The plot of “An Audition for Murder” deals with an acting company which is holding auditions for its forth coming production of “Death of a Disco Dancer.” As the hopeful actors read for roles in the play, one of their members is suddenly found dead under suspicious circumstances. Is the death caused by medical problems or is it a homicide?
Does the curse of Shakespeare’s “Macbeth” haunt the premises? An intrepid police inspector must deal with these questions and also with ham actors, dim witted divas, stage mothers, loud mouthed liberals and theater majors – all of whom have inflated egos. The laughs come even faster than the clues as the plot unfolds.
Doors will open at 6:30 on Friday and Saturday nights, with the dinner at 7:00 and the play at 8:00. The Sunday performance is an earlier evening presentation with doors open at 5:30 pm, dinner at 6:00 and the play at 7:00.
