If you don’t have a short comedic monologue prepared, please email the director and you will be sent character sides you can record in place of a monologue.

If you have any other difficulties with submitting a video monologue or character sides, feel free to contact the director at cmb164@zips.uakron.edu and we can work to make other arrangements.

 

Callbacks

Callback will be held virtually by appointment via ZOOM on Monday, December 7th , between 7:00 PM to 10:00 PM. If you are called back you will receive an email from the director on either December 5th or December 6th.

 

Rehearsal & Performances

Rehearsals and filming will primarily be held virtually starting the week of January 4th, 2021. Although, expect that we will have a read-through/informational meeting during the week of December 14th. While it is our intention that all filming will be able to be done from home via the Zoom app, however some limited filming may need to take place at the theatre depending on the needs of the production. Any on-site filming would be limited to a single performer, the director, and a representative from the theatre, would be dependent on the individual actors comfort level. Cast members will also be asked to pick up any costumes, props, or small set pieces (expect something similar to a picture frame, or small furniture piece) at Cassidy Theatre in January. If you have any difficulties with picking up items from the theatre, contact the director and he will make reasonable accommodations for you.

Electronic Requirements

All performers must have a device with a web camera and reliable internet access.

 

Available Roles

MISS SCARLET – a dry, sardonic DC Madam, more interested in secrets than sex.

MRS. PEACOCK – the wealthy wife of a Senator, a bit batty, neurotic, and quick to hysteria.

Show Synopsis

Based on the iconic 1985 Paramount movie which was inspired by the classic Hasbro board game, Clue is a hilarious farce-meets-murder mystery. The tale begins at a remote mansion, where six mysterious guests assemble for an unusual dinner party where murder and blackmail are on the menu. When their host turns up dead, they all become suspects. Led by the butler Wadsworth, Miss Scarlet, Professor Plum, Mrs. White, Mr. Green, Mrs. Peacock and Colonel Mustard race to find the killer as the body count stacks up. The characters and the audience must try to figure out...WHO did it, WHERE, and with WHAT!
