BPI_logoAuditions will be at 1 p.m. Sunday, July 10, and 7:30 p.m. Monday, July 11. Auditions will be held at the Anderson Center – Community Room B (7850 Five Mile Road, Cincinnati).

Ten guilty strangers are brought together on an isolated island by invitations from an unknown host. One by one they are accused of murder; one by one they succumb to an unseen, diabolical avenger. A nursery rhyme foretells how each of the ten will meet their death until finally there are none.

Headshots/resumes are welcomed/encouraged, but not necessary. Auditions will consist of readings from the script.
