Illinois actors called for as Christie auditions begin

October 30, 2013 by  

The audition call for ‘And Then There Were None’ is offering experienced or budding actors the opportunity to try out for a part in this classic Agatha Christie Mystery production. Some actors will no doubt arrive with digital business cards in tow as they look to sell themselves as the right people to play a part in the performance

The casting call has been issued by the Wheaton Drama group and there are several parts open that need to be filled.

The story behind this well-known mystery involves the characters William Blore, Dr. Edward Armstrong, Anthony Marston, Emily Brent, General John Macarthur, Philip Lombard, Vera Claythorne, and Lawrence Wargrave, all of whom are invited to a mansion to enjoy a lovely dinner on a fictional island called Soldier Island.

The guests are to await the arrival of their hosts, Mr. and Mrs. Owen, and soon they realized they are marooned on the island and the guest begin to die, one at a time. Soon, they realize they are dying as described in the nursery rhyme ‘Ten Little Soldiers’, and begin to accuse each other for the deaths.

There is no charge to audition for any of the parts, and auditions will be happening on Sunday, November 10, at the Wheaton Drama located at 111 North Hale Street in Wheaton, Illinois, just down the road from Warrenville.
