Auditions: Lucky Stiff

February 13, 2018 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm The Empress Theatre

The Empress Theatre is pleased to announce auditions for;
“Lucky Stiff”

Based on the novel, The Man Who Broke the Bank at Monte Carlo by Michael Butterworth, Lucky Stiff is an offbeat, hilarious murder mystery farce, complete with mistaken identities, six million bucks in diamonds and a corpse in a wheelchair. The story revolves around an unassuming English shoe salesman who is forced to take the embalmed body of his recently murdered uncle on a vacation to Monte Carlo. Should he succeed in passing his uncle off as alive, Harry Witherspoon stands to inherit $6,000,000. If not, the money goes to the Universal Dog Home of Brooklyn… or else his uncle’s gun-toting ex!

Featuring a tuneful Flaherty and Ahrens score, an ensemble cast of zany characters and small rock combo orchestra, Lucky Stiff is an audience charmer.

Please come prepared with 16 bars of a song in the style of the show. Please prepare a minus track or provide an accompanist.
No a capella singing will be permitted.

Please also come with a list of conflicts from February 13th to May 19th. No conflicts will be permitted after April 23rd 2018.
