Holmes for the Holidays – Auditions Dates TBA

Information for all those interested in auditioning for Ken Ludwig’s “Holmes for the Holidays – The Game’s Afoot.” This script is smart and funny and will require a talented cast to pull off.  The show dates are December 9-12.  All 8 parts are for adults.  The setting of the play is December 1936 (except for 1.1 which is a Sherlock play with in the play moment). No auditions have been set yet. 

Here is the elevator pitch on the back of the book:  “Broadway star William Gillette, admired the world over for his leading role in the play Sherlock Holmes, has 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 appears.  The danger and hilarity are non-stop in this glittering whodunnit set during the Christmas holidays.”

Here are the director’s descriptions of the characters.  Warning: I do reveal who has an affair with who, so… spoilers.

1.  William Gillette (Sherlock in 1.1)– actor, handsome and good humored, full of irony and life.  He owns the castle in which the play takes place, and he is having an affair with Aggie.

2.  Felix Giesel (Moriarty in 1.1)– actor, can be melodramatic or overly theatrical.  He is husband to Madge, having an affair with Daria.

3.  Madge Giesel (Marian in 1.1)– actor, wife to Felix, wry and smart aleck.

4.  Aggie Wheeler (Alice in 1.1)– actress, beautiful, young, bright-eyed, and full of spunk. She is wife to Simon and having an affair with William.

5.  Simon Bright (Zerlinsky in 1.1)– actor, handsome, young, sweet and enthusiastic, but plays dumb a lot. He is husband to Aggie.

6.  Daria Chase– reporter who is having an affair with Felix. Believes she can channel the dead and leads a seance. 

7.  Martha Gillette-William’s mother who lives with him and can be somewhat flighty.

8.  Inspector Goring (Broadcaster in 1.2)-any gender, British, quirky character.
