Dust off your detective hats and get ready to dazzle us at our next round of auditions!

Something’s Afoot is a zany, entertaining musical that hilariously satirizes Agatha Christie mysteries and the musical styles of the English music hall of the 1930s. Ten strangers are stranded in an isolated English country house during a raging thunderstorm. One by one, they fall victim to cleverly fiendish devices. As the bodies pile up in the library, the survivors race against time to unmask the cunning culprit.

Auditions will be held Sunday and Monday, July 28 and 29 at 7:30 PM. You only need to attend one evening of your choice. Individuals 17 and up should prepare a song (less than one minute) that best showcases your voice. Bring sheet music (an accompanist will be provided) or bring accompaniment on a device that can connect to our speaker via Bluetooth. There may be some brief movement for characterizations. Depending on time, those auditioning may be asked to participate in some improvisation exercises or those may take place at callbacks at a later date.

Please complete this audition form and bring it with you to auditions.

The play made its Broadway debut at the Lyceum Theatre in New York City on May 27, 1976.

Something’s Afoot later graced the West End stage at the Ambassadors Theatre in London in 1977.

All roles are available. A list of characters, ranges and descriptions is below. Note: All of the characters are British stereotypes. Two of them, Lettie and Flint, are cockney. The situation is farcical, but, because the plot is a murder mystery, the characters should play the play for real.

LETTIE – The saucy maid

FLINT – The caretaker

CLIVE – The butler

HOPE LANGDON – The ingenue

DR. GRAYBURN – The family doctor
