January 10 – 19, 2020
Mandate For Murder
Written By Pat Cook | Directed by Mike Box
Agatha Christie's Black Coffee
Sunday, December 8th & Tuesday, December 10th at 7pm
A wealthy scientist dies unexpectedly — just after he reveals that his latest discovery has been stolen and while all his staff and family are with him in the pitch-dark room. Yes, it’s murder. And the murderer has outsmarted the family and the authorities — until Hercule Poirot shows up, solving the puzzle and unmasking the culprit. Black Coffee is a classic Agatha Christie whodunit.
The cast requires three women and seven men, and it has several parts that can be played either by a man or a woman. Characters range in age from about 20 to about 75. No special preparation is required for auditions. We’ll do cold reading from the script. You’re welcome to come to either or both auditions. If you cannot come to either, contact the director to make other arrangements. Although auditions are in early December, we will not rehearse until January. Rehearsals are generally three evenings a week until close to production time.
Show dates: February 28 to March 8, 2020
