Auditions Announced for THE MUSICAL COMEDY MURDERS OF 1940 at Lebanon Theatre Company

LTC_logoAnnouncing auditions for THE MUSICAL COMEDY MURDERS OF 1940.

Directed by Kurt Percy
Produced by Abby Smith

Audition dates: January 5th and 6th at 7:00pm at LTC.

Synopsis
The creative team responsible for a recent Broadway flop (in which three chorus girls were murdered by the mysterious “Stage Door Slasher”) assemble for a backer’s audition of their new show at the Westchester estate. The house is full of sliding panels and secret passageways. As the composer, lyricist, actors, and director prepare their performance, and a blizzard cuts off any possible retreat, the infamous “Slasher” makes his reappearance and strikes again. Bodies start to drop in plain sight, knives spring out of nowhere, masked figures drag their victims behind swiveling bookcases, and accusing fingers point in all directions. However, the mystery is solved in the nick of time and the Slasher unmasked—but not before the audience has been treated to a sidesplitting good time and a generous serving of the author’s biting, satiric, and refreshingly irreverent wit.
