Auditions for “Who’s Who?” at Red Rock Books

(by) Daniel Stallings Master Mystery Productions is reuniting with Red Rock Books for a new live comedy play, an interactive costume party caper titled “Who’s Who?,” and we need performers. We welcome actors of any and all levels of experience to help us put on this show. Wealthy and eccentric Great-great Aunt Gladys Honeypot has finally moved on to a better place...to Las Vegas where she can live it up in her golden years!

There’s a family legend that she gave a priceless treasure to her favorite bookstore as “a token of her boundless appreciation” ...which then turns several not-so-honest eyes on the bookstore as a target. When the store hosts a special “Who’s Who Come-as-You’re-Not Costume Party,” a ragtag collection of people decide it’s the perfect occasion to come as they’re not to liberate the store of this priceless treasure. But in a world where nothing is as it seems and no one is who they say they are, finding the treasure will be one wild, madcap adventure.

Alliances will be made and broken, and someone might just double-cross the double-crossers. Who are these people? Where is the treasure hidden? And just what is the treasure? These are the mysteries you get to solve as you tangle with screwball secrets, slapstick suspects, and hilarious hijinks, because in this costume party caper, everyone has something to hide.

At auditions, performers will read selected passages and scenes from the original script by writer/director, Daniel Stallings. There are 7 roles. Actors must be thirteen or older, and anyone under eighteen must have parent/guardian permission and a parent/guardian present at rehearsals. Auditions will be Friday, July 30 and Saturday, July 31 from 4 to 6 p.m. at Red Rock Books. “Who’s Who?” will be performed November 5, 6, 12, and 13, and rehearsals dates will be finalized after auditions based on actor availability. We ask that all performers adhere to current CA Dept. of Public Health guidelines for COVID and wear a mask if unvaccinated or show proof of vaccination at auditions.

If you are interested in auditioning, but are unable to make the audition dates, email Master Mystery Productions at mastermysteryproductions@hotmail.com to set up an outside audition. For more information, visit mastermysteryproductions.com or Master Mystery Productions on Facebook.
