A Mystery Thriller

An Act of the Imagination

Auditions: Tuesday, November 26 and Wednesday, November 27
3 men, 4 women – all British
Show Dates: March 13 – April 5, 2020
Director: Curt Arnold

Place:  Arthur Putnam’s home outside London, 1964
Arthur Putnam – 40s/50s, mystery writer
Simon Putnam – 20s/30s, Arthur’s son
Fred Burtchitt – 40s/50s, police detective
Julia Putnam – 40s/50s, Arthur’s wife & Simon’s stepmother

*Note: Brenda and Brooke are small but crucial roles, about 10 pages each and will NOT be doubled.

The Story:  This masterful suspense tale involves a successful mystery writer whose latest work has strangely turned into a romance – a vivid and adulterous romance. His son, his second wife, and his editor marvel at the truthfulness of the work, remarkable since it is inconceivable that he could ever have had such an affair. Enter a woman intent on blackmail: it appears that Arthur has been trysting away from home. Death stalks: the other woman disappears and evidence incriminates Arthur in her murder. There is a conspiracy to do Arthur in, a conspiracy that entails cunning, deceit, and ingenious plotting.

A Musical Comedy

Pump Boys and Dinettes

Auditions: Tuesday, February 11 and Wednesday, February 12
4 men, 2 women
Show Dates: May 8 – 31, 2020
Director: TBA
Music Director: TBA

The Story:  The “Pump Boys” sell high octane on Highway 57 in Grand Ole Opry country and the “Dinettes”, Prudie and Rhetta Cupp, run the Double Cupp diner next door. Together they fashion an evening of country western songs that received unanimous raves on and off-Broadway. With heartbreak and hilarity, they perform on guitars, piano, bass and, yes, kitchen utensils.
