Center Theatre Players (CTP) is pleased to announce The Mystery of Edwin Drood as their 2018 summer production.
The Mystery of Edwin Drood is a hilarious, interactive “whodunit” mystery musical that allows the audience to become the ultimate detectives. The show is based on Charles Dickens’ last, unfinished novel. Set in the small town of Cloisterham, England, the young and charming Edwin Drood has been mysteriously murdered. But by whom? Dickens passed away before he was able to reveal the culprit. Now only the audience can decide! This charming and inventive musical is sure to intrigue and entertain any musical or mystery lover.
Drood will be performed on July 26, 27 and 28, 2018 at the Rochester Borough Theater Complex located at 350 Adams Street, Rochester, PA 15074. More information on show times and ticket sales will be announced soon. CTP will be holding auditions for the summer show on April 8th and 9th, and welcomes actors ages 16+ to audition for this exciting murder mystery of a musical.
Auditions will be held on from 2 to 4PM Sunday, April 8th and from 6:30 to 8:30PM on Monday, April 9th at the Rochester Borough Theater. Interested individuals can sign up online (https://bit.ly/2IVsgQd) to reserve a 10 minute audition time slot. In addition to completing the online form, actors must prepare a Broadway style song, up to a minute and a half in length. Those that are interested in a leading role may sing a song from the show, though it is not required. Auditioners may bring their own accompanist (a keyboard is available onsite) or a digital recording without lead vocals can be used as an accompaniment.
