The audition reading for Agatha Crusty and the Village Hall Murders will be on Tuesday, 21st October in The Little Theatre from 7.00pm.
It should be a good laugh, even if it’s not quite Checkov. Production dates are 8th – 13th June, 2015, so there’s plenty of time to learn lines.
Parts are as follows:
Harry – the village hall caretaker, cynical, worldly-wise, down-to-earth
Agatha – crime novelist, unassuming, but very smart
Alice – Agatha’s sister-in-law, pleasant, unpretentious
Olivia – upper crust, landed gentry type, with less land than she’d like
Eleanor – chair of the hall committee, mother superior type
Twigg – Detective Inspector of extraordinary incompetence
Maisie – cleaner, pleasant, but not afraid to call a spade a spade
Toby – vicar, generally genial and a little naive, but can be forceful
PC Lockett – village bobby, cousin to Harry
Isabella – pub landlady, mumsy type, with definite pretensions
Oliver – Olivia’s brother, who, except for the hair, looks the same
Mandy – model, young, streetwise girl
