RASA summer theater production auditions upcoming


Fri, May 9th, 2014
Posted in Peterson Arts & Culture

Rushford Area Society of the Arts will be holding auditions for this summer’s community theater production of ‘The Butler Did It”, on Thursday evening, May 15, at 6 p.m., and Saturday, May 17 at 9 a.m. in the Rushford Peterson High School Theater. There are roles for five men and five women – all adult. This is strictly a comedy with no music. The play will be directed by Kathleen Bryant of Winona. If you have any questions regarding the auditions or the production, please call Brenda at 507 864 7525. The production will be held July 16, 17, 18, 19, & 20 at the Rushford Peterson High School Theater, with rehearsals to begin on May 25, 2014.

This comedy parodies every English mystery play ever written: but it has a decidedly American flair. Miss Maple, a dowager with a reputation for “clever” weekend parties, invites a group of detective writers to eerie Ravenswood Manor on Turkey Island where they are to impersonate their fictional characters. The hostess has arranged all sorts of amusing incidents: a mysterious voice on the radio, a menacing face at the window, a mad killer on the loose. Who is that body in the wine cellar anyway? Why do little figurines keep toppling from the mantle? Then a real murder takes place, and Miss Maple is outraged. She offers an immense reward to the “detective” who can bring the killer to justice. And what an assortment of zany would-be sleuths! When they’re not busy tripping over clues, they trip over each other! Laughs collide with thrills, and the climax is a real seat-grabber as the true killer is unmasked, and almost everyone turns out to be someone else!
