Come be a part of a 7-year summer tradition of Locally Grown Theatre--outdoor original summer theatre!  Men, women, and children (ages 6 and up) are welcome to audition.  The classic game of "Clue" is afoot! Join Sherlock and his friends solve a case of murder and intrigue set in the "Clue" style, Boddy Hotel. At the beginning of the story, the creator of Sherlock Holmes, Arthur Conan Doyle begins to kill Sherlock off in his stories so he can retire, and it immediately affects the fictional world that he created in his novels. Just then a knock comes to Doyle's door--it is an invitation to a 3 day stay at the Boddy Hotel inviting him to solve Sherlock's murder. But Arthur's story hasn't gone to print yet...could it be that the invitation came from Sherlock Holmes himself?


FOR AUDITIONS: Please prepare a 2 minute comedic story or monologue--and please SEND YOUR AUDITION PREFERENCE TIME (Either 6-7:30 pm OR 7:30-9 pm for May 14th. We will see people on a first come, first serve basis within each day's audition time)
