Springfield Theatre Centre
Auditions for STC's Murder Mystery Dinner Show, The RatTrap will take place on February 2nd, 2018 at the Hoogland Center for the Arts. There are 4 one hour long auditions slots, and callbacks will be that afternoon at 3:30 pm.
The Rattrap is centered around the idea of a “play-within-a-play” meaning you will not only be playing the character in the show – you will also be playing the actor in the show as well. For your audition, you will perform a monologue with a character break purposely written in. For example, you might be delivering Shakespeare’s “To be or not to be” soliloquy and then mid-way stop to ask the director “what’s my motivation?” The goal is to see two distinct characters and to also shake up your “typical” auditions. There will also be some cold readings.
Synopsis: Mr. Arnold has been murdered after hosting a cruel event called the RatTrap in which he turns his guests into mice as they race around his house trying to find an amulet worth 1 million dollars. As they spit and spat with each other, Mr. Arnold pushes them to their extremes, leading one to become a murderer. It’s the audiences job to decipher Whodunit? The only problem – these actors can’t seem to get their lines right, can’t stop breaking character, and can’t stay out of the liquor cabinet. And because the audience gets to vote on what scenes they want to watch, no performance will be the same. Interactive theatre has never felt so murderous.
