Second Street Players has announced auditions for their fall play, “Strictly Murder”

Second Street Players announces auditions for Brian Clemens’s play, “Strictly Murder.”

Director Mike Amory has announced open auditions for Second Street Players’ production of “Strictly Murder.” Auditions will be held from 6-8 p.m. on Monday, July 3rd and Wednesday July 5th at the Milford Senior Center, 111 Park Ave, Milford. Casting will be for 5 people: a woman 22-35 years of age, a man 25-40 years of age, 2 men 40+ and 1 woman 40+. SSP notes that the ages are set as guidelines for the parts and not exact for the person to audition. Those auditioning will participate in cold readings from the script. A prepared monologue is not requested.

Taking place in 1939, an English couple, Peter and Suzy, who are living in Provence in idyllic isolation, far, it seems, from the rumblings of the coming war. Their peace is shattered from within when Suzy discovers she has been betrayed: Peter is not the man he claims to be. Suzy’s life is thrown into turmoil as the possibility arises that Peter may in fact be a ruthless killer on the run. Then a Scotland Yard detective arrives, and events become even more complicated and frightening.

Please have your calendars to note any potential conflicts on your audition form that you may have between the auditions and the close of the show. Show dates are September 8, 9, 10 and September 15, 16, 17, 2023. Auditioners MUST be available for all performances.

Additional questions may be sent to the director, Mike Amory, at [email protected].
