ACME Theater Announces Auditions

Audition notice for Fit to Kill!
Greetings from Acme Theater!

Acme Theater is proud to announce auditions for Fit to Kill by Victor L. Cahn, directed by Nancy Curran Willis!

Audition dates are:
Saturday, September 6th at 1pm; and
Saturday, September 13th at 3pm

***Sign up for your preferred date by contacting Kathy Campbell at Auditions will consist of cold readings from the script.***

Show Description:
Fit to Kill is a masterful black-comedy murder mystery in the tradition of Wait until DarkDeathtrap, andSleuth - a scheme of strategy, betrayal, and deception. Adrian, a charming but self-indulgent chess master, enjoys a life of luxury thanks to his marriage to Janice, an older, sexy and vibrant woman who has made a fortune as CEO of an exercise empire. The arrival of Amy, a reporter with her own agenda, unleashes a whirlwind of deadly schemes that will keep audiences guessing until the final seconds. A wonderful psychological thriller and a tantalizing game of cat-and-mouse.

The director is looking for a tight ensemble of actors capable of playing both the mounting tension and the humor of the play. It's a psychological thriller with lots of twists and turns where characters play an ever evolving game of cat-and-mouse that takes the audience on a wild ride through the Connecticut countryside. Local composer Valerie Forgione is creating a musical underscore for the piece reminiscent of the great thrillers of Alfred Hitchcock.
Roles for 2 Females (20's to young 50's) and one Male (35+).

The ages above are relative as the director is flexible to final casting. The play needs an "older" attractive, successful woman married to a "younger" chess player husband and a "younger" female reporter.
Adrian - Charming, handsome, professional chess player who is kept by his older yet beautiful wife, Janice.
Janice - Older wife of Adrian, a wealthy Connecticut CEO of a fitness empire with a history of questionable business ethics.
Amy - A young reporter sent out to interview Adrian who inserts herself into their lives. Who is she really and why is she there?

Begin Oct. 6 and will be held 3 nights per week between Monday and Thursday (depending on cast preference) with Sundays added starting Oct. 26.

November 21 - December 13 (Fridays & Saturdays at8pmSunday 11/30 at 3pm)
