Center Street Community Theatre Announces Auditions for Agatha Christie’s The Mousetrap

WARSAW— Center Street Community Theatre announces plans for the Spring 2018 production of The Mousetrap by Agatha Christie. Performances are scheduled for April 19-22 at the Wagon Wheel Center for the Arts. The show will be directed by Emilie Judy.

Auditions will be held from 6:30 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. January 8 and 9, in the basement fellowship hall of the Warsaw First United Methodist Church. Callbacks will be scheduled if necessary on January 11, at the same time and location.

The cast of The Mousetrap will include five men and three women of varying ages. The audition format will be “cold reading,” in which participants read directly from the script, rather than preparing monologues. Theatrical resumes are welcome, but not necessary, and background forms will be available.

“The Mousetrap is a wonderful show with exciting twists and turns,” stated Judy, “I am thrilled for the opportunity to bring this to the Wagon Wheel stage.” Center Street Community Theatre is also looking to fill Assistant Director, Stage Manager, lighting design, and hair and make-up positions.

The Center Street Community Theatre is the most recent addition to the Wagon Wheel Center for the Arts’ initiatives. The community theatre’s past productions include, “You Can’t Take It With You,” “Almost Maine,” “M*A*S*H,” “The Foreigner,” “Over the River and through the Woods,” “The Curious Savage,”  “Off the Wagon: A Night of Unpredictable Comedy,” and “Steel Magnolias.” Plans are also underway for the second annual “Off the Wagon” event as well as a fall production.

Those interested in finding more about the upcoming production and auditions can visit the group’s Facebook page or email them at CScommunitytheatre@wagonwheeltheatre.com.
