Arsenic and Old Lace Auditions

Arsenic and Old Lace auditions. Sunday, Jan. 7, 3 - 5. Tuesday, Jan. 9, 6 - 8. CAST Headquarters. Show dates are March 8 - 11. Those wishing to audition should prepare a 1-2 minute contemporary comedic monologue. You will also do a cold reading from the play script. Anyone unable to attend auditions that may need special arrangements or anyone with any questions can contact the director, Dylan Hurst, directly at The play is a farcical black comedy revolving around the Brewster family, descended from the Mayflower, but now composed of insane homicidal maniacs. The hero, Mortimer Brewster, is a drama critic who must deal with his crazy, homicidal family and local police in Brooklyn, NY, as he debates whether to go through with his recent promise to marry the woman he loves.

His family includes two spinster aunts who have taken to murdering lonely old men by poisoning them with a glass of home-made elderberry wine laced with arsenic, strychnine, and "just a pinch" of cyanide; a brother who believes he is Theodore Roosevelt and digs locks for the Panama Canal in the cellar of the Brewster home (which then serve as graves for the aunts' victims; he thinks that they died of Yellow Fever); and a murderous brother who has received plastic surgery performed by an alcoholic accomplice, Dr. Einstein (a character based on real-life gangland surgeon Joseph Moran) to conceal his identity, and now looks like horror-film actor Boris Karloff.

Age range, please. Any kids/teens?
