Auditions for ‘Deathtrap’ begin Jan. 22
St. Charles Community College’s Center Stage Theatre will hold open auditions for the upcoming production of “Deathtrap,” a thriller by Ira Levin.
Director Jeff David will hold auditions at 7 p.m., Tuesday, Jan. 22 and Wednesday, Jan. 23, in the theater of the Donald D. Shook Fine Arts Building on the SCC campus in Cottleville. Center Stage Theatre invites SCC students and community residents to audition.
There are roles for two women and three men. Those auditioning will be expected to do readings from the script, which is on reserve in the SCC Library. Monologues are encouraged but not required.
“Deathtrap” is a highly successful play that tells the story of an acclaimed playwright, famous for his theatrical thrillers, who has had a recent string of flops and misfires. He is ready to try anything to reverse his fortunes even if it means bringing the killing off the page. He begins to collaborate with a young student who has written the beginnings of a top-notch thriller. Through a series of twists and turns, the characters’ real intentions all begin to shine through. The trap is set. Not everyone will make it out alive.
The performances will be held in the theater of the Fine Arts Building, March 6 through March 10.
