Seeking Actor Submission for Sheer Madness! - (posted 1/6/17 by Palace Theater in the Dells)

The Palace Theater in the Wisconsin Dells is seeking ACTORS for ALL roles in its upcoming production Sheer Madness!

This unique comedy-whodunit takes place today in the "Shear Madness" hairstyling salon and is chock full of up-to-the-minute spontaneous humor. During the course of the action, a murder is committed and the audience gets to spot the clues, question the suspects, and solve the funniest mystery in the annals of crime. The outcome is never the same, which is why many audience members return again and again to the scene of the mayhem.

CASTING BREAKDOWN

NICK ROSSETTI
(or NICK JOHNSON or TOM OBRIEN depending on his ethnic background)
(Age 30-45) is a hard-working New York "gumshoe" detective responsible for keeping the investigation at "Shear Madness" on track. A personable character actor who can also be an excellent comic straightman. Must be an actor not intimidated by a boisterous audience. Requires a nice looking, masculine actor with a solid voice and solid acting skills who can learn the dynamics that will keep the play moving forward. Although he sometimes plays dumb, this actor must be very bright.
TONY WHITCOMB
(Age 25-40) is the likable, flamboyant, irrepressible proprietor of the "Shear Madness" salon. He is fun, devilish, and interested in everything and everyone, but never jaded in any way. His "shoot from the hip" comedy must endear him to all. Should be good at physical comedy and love "playing to an audience". Enjoys sharing gossip, swapping recipes and dramatizing moments of his life. He is rapid fire fun.
BARBARA DEMARCO
(Age 35-55) is the wisecracking, gum-snapping, nail-polishing hairdresser cum manicurist. She keeps "Shear Madness" running, answering phones, taking appointments and restocking shelves. She's well put together, though on the cheap side and with a push-up bra. She is likable, ambitious and streetwise and can spot a bad dye job from 20 paces.
EDDIE LAWRENCE
(Age 35-55) is a well dressed nice-looking confidence man who covers a dangerous interior with a smooth, suave, and occasionally charming exterior. Often the "villan" of the piece he must have a great sense of comedy as well.
MRS. SHUBERT
(Age 55-80) is an old-money Park Avenue socialite of impeccable breeding and manner. She can really turn on the charm when she needs to and at her finest is a real class act. Good looker and good mover. Must have her hair cut to specifications and then washed and blown out at every performance,
MIKEY THOMAS
(Age 23-30) An eager-beaver high energy preppy/geek who is a capable, earnest, younger partner to Nick. Fresh out of a local junior college studying criminology he is a likeable go getter. Has his hair washed and blown dry every performance.

Please submit your headshot and resume to
dellspalacecasting@gmail.com

Rehearsals begin Monday, 2/6/17, opening Friday, 2/17/17 and closing Sunday, 3/12/17. Must be available for all rehearsal and performance dates. Please see performance schedule at www.dellspalace.com
