Are you interested in auditioning for a murder mystery play with lots of suspense? Or perhaps you just want to help the Richmond Community Theatre put on its next play, “Dial ‘M’ for Murder” by Fredrick Knott.
Auditions will be held tonight and Wednesday at 7 p.m. at the Richmond Community Theatre on East Washington Street in downtown Rockingham.
In the play, Tony Wendice marries Margot for money and for the same reason plots her murder. He arranges, he thinks, the perfect murder. But the hired murderer is the one who ends up dead and Margot is accused. Will Margot be convicted? Or will Scotland Yard discover the truth and free Margot? This play has been described as “a feast for suspense lovers.”
The play has roles for five male actors, from ages 25 - 70 and one female, age 25 - 50.
“We may be able to cast two women in the men’s roles if needed, as Scotland Yard detectives,” said Theatre Director Shelly Walker.
