LANCASTER — Lancaster Community Players will hold auditions for their fall production in the City Hall Senior Citizen Room Monday, Aug. 19, and Wednesday, Aug. 21 from 7 to 8:30 p.m.
LCP will present “Let’s Murder Marsha,” a fast-paced comedy about a housewife whose secret indulgence is reading murder mysteries. Her devoted husband thinks they’re silly and insists she give up her obsession.
Marsha overhears her husband and an interior designer talking about how they are going to surprise her the next day, and Marsha thinks they are planning to murder her. The maid tries to help Marsha, and they get the neighbor man involved — just as any good heroine would. Marsha’s mother shows up, aware of the husband’s “plan.” Misinterpretation and innocent fun lead to outrageous comedy.
The play offers roles for four women and three men. Scripts are available for checkout at Schreiner Memorial Library, Lancaster, until audition time.
“Participating in LCP is a great opportunity to indulge in something for yourself while giving the Tri-State area a quality live theatre experience in a historic venue,” said director Eileen Dushek-Manthe. “Aside from acting, LCP welcomes people to share their talents with set design, costuming and props, and a variety of behind-the-scene activities.”
Contact Dushek-Manthe, firstname.lastname@example.org, 723-4913 for information about the show or LCP.
“Let’s Murder Marsha” will be presented at the Grantland Theatre in Lancaster Oct. 18–20. Tickets will be available in September.
“Let’s Murder Marsha” is written by Monk Ferris and is produced by special arrangement with Samuel French, Inc.
