Murdered - Audition Event Cover.png


April 15th and 16th | 6:00pm-8:00pm

Stop by the Philadelphia Street Playhouse at any time on either audition date. No prior experience is necessary. Auditions will consist of readings from the script.

Ideally, accents will be used for the performances. A generic British accent is encouraged, but not required for the audition, with the exception of Pierre, who typically speaks with an exaggerated French accent.


Please come prepared with a list of all conflicts from April 20th through May 30th. Rehearsals will be held on weeknights after 6pm, and likely some weekends, times TBD. Auditioners must be available for all performances.


Performance Dates:

May 31, June 1, 2, 7, 8, 9

Fridays and Saturdays at 7:30pm and Sundays at 2:30pm

A mystery/spoof set in England in the 1930s. The inept and bungling Inspector Pratt must battle against the odds and his own incompetence to solve the murder of the owner of an English country house. It soon becomes clear that the murderer isn’t finished yet; will the miscreant be unmasked before everyone else has met their doom or will the audience die laughing first?
