The Telltale Heart Auditions

Avenue Arts Marketplace & Theatre announces auditions for THE TELLTALE HEART

Located at 324 Cleveland Ave. NW Canton, Ohio 44702

SYNOPSIS: In comfortless surroundings, a young man plans and commits the "perfect crime." When a detective stops by on a quite different matter, it becomes apparent that the young man has little to fear. The only trouble is, he can't stop the pounding of the dead man's heart. Why can't the detective hear it? As the pounding grows louder and the tension increases, the audience realizes that they are watching the very madness of a murderer.

The Telltale Heart is presented by special arrangement with Dramatic Publishing Company

Directed by: Joe Soriano
