Auditions for Nicolet Players? The Game?s Afoot
A murder mystery filled with hilarity is next up for the Nicolet Players, and anyone interested in being part of the production filled with tomfoolery is invited to attend an audition at 7 p.m., Monday, Sept. 15, and Tuesday, Sept. 16.
The Game’s Afoot is set in 1936 and centers around Broadway star William Gillette, admired the world over for his leading role in the play Sherlock Holmes. He’s invited his fellow cast members to his Connecticut castle for a weekend of revelry. But when one of the guests is stabbed to death, the festivities in this isolated house of tricks and mirrors quickly turn dangerous. Then it’s up to Gillette himself, as he assumes the persona of his beloved Holmes, to track down the killer before the next victim.
“This is the perfect play for anyone who has little or no acting experience and has always wanted to be in a play,” said Jim Nuttall, Nicolet College Theatre director. “It’s brilliantly written, which makes it great for first-time actors, and the storyline is hilarious, which makes rehearsals a whole lot of fun.”
There are roles for three men and five women ranging in age from the late teens to early 70s.
“Auditions are open to everyone,” Nuttall explained. “You do not need to be a Nicolet student. All you need is enthusiasm and the desire to be in a highly entertaining production.”
All auditions will be held in the Nicolet College Theatre in the Learning Resources Center. The campus is located one mile south of the city just off of Cty. G.
Scripts are available for three-day check-out from the Nicolet College Library.
