HIT AUDITIONS (article first published : 2003-05-15)

The amateur (non-professional, ie performers receive no remuneration) theatre organisation Highway Intimate Theatre is calling for auditions for their next play. This will be Murder By Appointment by Frank Williams to be directed by Anne Petersen.

Set in 1970, this play cleverly manipulates modern trends and conceptions of behaviour to the murderer's advantage. Building on present psychological ideas of heredity and sexual tendencies the author has designed such a plot that not only is the murderer's identity concealed right to the end but the audience is lured into condemning the wrong person, not once, but twice. Using only six characters, each a definable "type", red herrings abound to make this into an exciting and devious thriller.

The characters needed for the auditions are as follows: David Langford, elder son (quiet type); Joan Langford, his mother (protective and more perceptive than the average mother - quite a large part); Richard Langford, his father (a "solid" type); Charles Langford, his younger brother (quite worldly-wise public schoolboy); Detective Sergeant Bradley and Celia Masefield, young (still at school - small, character part).

Auditions will be held at The Pinetown Library Functions Room on May 22 at 19h30 for 20h00.

For further information, contact Anne Petersen after hours on 031 705-1251.
