By Melisa Ferris
The Mantorville Theatre Company will hold auditions for its 2014 October All Hallow's Feast Murder Mystery Dinner Theatre production of David Landau and Nikki Stern's Murder at Cafe Noir. Auditions will be held on Sunday, July 13, and Sunday, July 20, 2014, at 7 p.m. at the Mantorville Opera House. The play features four men and three women, ages 20-70. Actors who are older and younger than the target ages are also encouraged to audition.
The most popular mystery dinner show in the country, Murder at Cafe Noir has enjoyed weekly productions coast to coast since its premiere in 1989.
This forties detective story come to life features Rick Archer, P.I., out to find a curvaceous runaway on the forgotten island of Mustique, a place stuck in a black and white era.
The owner of the Cafe Noir has washed ashore, murdered, and Rick's quarry was the last person seen with him. He employs his hard boiled talents to find the killer. Was it the French madame and club manager, the voodoo priestess, the shyster British attorney, the black marketeer or the femme fatale?
The audience votes twice on what they want Rick to do next and these decisions change the flow of this comic tribute to the Bogart era.
No singing or prepared material is necessary, as actors will read from scripts provided at the audition. Directed by Jeremy Kittleson, the show will open on October 3, 2014.
