Open Auditions for DIAL M FOR MURDER at Town Players
NEWTOWN, CONN. (March 12, 2012) - Town Players of Newtown announces auditions for its 2012 season opener, the thriller DIAL M FOR MURDER.
A scheming Tony Wendice has married his wife, Margot, for her money and now plans to murder her for the same reason. Using blackmail to use the services of a scoundrel from his past, Tony plans the perfect murder and arranges his own brilliant alibi. But the plan goes awry when the murderer gets murdered and Margot survives. Tony schemes once again to have his wife framed for the crime – but will he succeed?
Written by Frederick Knott, DIAL M FOR MURDER was first presented onstage at the Westminster Theatre, London, on June 19, 1952. It was later adapted for the 1954 silver screen version by the one and only Alfred Hitchcock and starred Ray Milland, Grace Kelly and Robert Cummings.
Directed by Gene Golaszewski of Brookfield, DIAL M FOR MURDER calls for the talents of four men and one woman. Auditions will take place at the theater, 18 Orchard Hill Road in Newtown, on March 26 & 27 from 7:30 to 9 pm. No appointment is necessary. All roles are open, and auditions will consist of cold readings from the script.
Rehearsals will begin at the end of March. The production run is Friday and Saturday evenings May 4 through the 26, with two Sunday matinees on May 13 & 20. Town Players is a non-profit community theater.
Auditions are 3/26 & 3/27 from 7:30-9pm at the theatre.
