Actors wanted for ‘Sherlock Holmes Mystery’
TORRINGTON — The Warner Stage Company will hold open auditions for its upcoming production of Ken Ludwig's “Baskerville: A Sherlock Holmes Mystery,” Jan 7 and Jan. 9. Auditions are by appointment only. Callbacks, if needed, will be held Jan. 9 at 8:30 p.m.
The production is directed by Katherine Ray and will be staged at the Warner Theatre's Nancy Marine Studio Theatre beginning March 23 for five performances.
All roles are open to audition. The company is seeking four men and one woman for this production. Auditioners are asked to prepare two short monologues from the materials provided, with the audition appointment confirmation. Auditioners will also be asked to read from the script — reading copies are available from the production office — as well as participate in several improvisation exercises. Dress comfortably for movement.
Rehearsals will be held three nights a week on Sundays, Tuesdays and Thursdays from 7 to 10 p.m., starting Feb. 3.
Audition appointment spaces are limited and filled on a first-come, first-served basis.
Anyone who is unable to make the mandatory tech week rehearsals and/or midweek pickup rehearsal, cannot be cast in this production.
