The Brevard Little Theatre will conduct auditions for Agatha Christie’s mystery, “The Mousetrap” on Saturday and Sunday, April 24 & 25, from 2 to 4pm. The auditions will be held in the American Legion hall in Brevard. Michael Wilson will direct the show.  Performances are June 18-27, 2010.

The story is about a young couple, Mollie and Giles Ralston, who
have started up a new hotel in the converted Monkswell Manor. They
are snowed in together with four guests and an additional traveller,
who ran his car into a snowdrift. Detective Sergeant Trotter arrives
on skis to inform the group that he believes a murderer is on his
way to the hotel, following the death of Mrs Maureen Lyon in London.

When one of the guests – Mrs Boyle – is killed, they realise that the
murderer is already there. The suspicion falls first on Christopher
Wren, an erratic young man who fits the description of the supposed
murderer. However, it quickly transpires that the killer could be any
one of the guests, or even the hosts themselves.

Roles are available for 5 men and 3 women. Bring a resume and a head shot, if possible. Auditions will consist of cold readings from the script.

Performances are scheduled for two weekends, June 18-27, 2010. For more information, email Michael Wilson at identifymichael@gmail.com.

All of the characters have troubled pasts that will make them multi-dimensional and fun to interpret.

FEMALE ROLES:

Mollie (late 20s,) She is a newlywed who, along with her husband, Giles, has just decided to open a guest house. While she seems pretty much with it, something unfortunate happened to her several years ago and it still haunts her to this day.

Mrs. Boyle (40s-50s) is a former Magistrate, thoroughly pompous and irritating. She finds fault with everyone and everything. In her eyes, she’s perfect.

Miss Casewell (around 30) She is cool, standoffish, very reserved, seems to look down her nose at everyone. Seems to have her undies in a bunch!

MALE ROLES:

Giles (late 20s) He is married to Mollie. While he seems pleasant and accommodating enough, apparently he had a negative experience as a child that still weighs on him.

Major Metcalfe (40s-60s) He seems to have it all together, but he’s definitely hiding something!

Christopher Wren (18-19) is a college freshman. A thoroughly interesting character who never quite fits in, he is bright, nerdy and can be annoying to many!

Detective Sergeant Trotter (mid 20s) He has an official investigative manner. Troubled past? Maybe!

Paravacini (mid 40s – 60s) He’s the only one at the guest house who didn’t make a reservation. His car ended up in a snow bank (yes, there’s a blizzard out there) in front of the guest house. Fortunately (or unfortunately) there is a room available for him. He is an Italian visitor who loves his carbs and pasta (a jolly old elf).  This character offers plenty of room for interpretation.
