BERKELEY SPRINGS, W.Va. — The Morgan Arts Council’s Ice House Theater Project will hold open auditions for “The Bold, The Young and The Murdered” Jan. 21 and 22 at 6 p.m. at the Ice House, Mercer and Independence streets.
Show dates are March 2 through March 22 and March 27 through March 29.
The show, directed by Brice Williams, is a comedy murder mystery on a soap opera set. The long-running soap opera “The Bold and the Young” is in its last days: its hunky hero has self-esteem issues, its villainous old man is more interested in soup, and its heroines are slightly psychopathic. The executive producer gives the squabbling cast an ultimatum: Complete one episode overnight or the show dies. But when the director ends up murdered, and other cast members start dropping like flies, it seems like his threat might actually come true. Can these misfits discover the murderer before the show is literally killed off?
There are parts for 13 adult actors, a few of the parts could be played by older looking teens. No prior experience is required.
