Auditions

Auditions for Playhouse 2000 shows are roughly 8-12 weeks prior to the opening weekend of the show. Everyone is invited to audition, but we do our best to work very professionally. Actors should expect approximately 6 weeks of rehearsals. A full rehearsal schedule is typically available after auditions.  Auditioners for each show are only expected to attend one audition session unless specially informed about call-backs.

Fill out the form at the bottom of this page for any P2K show you are interested in auditioning for.  You still need to attend the auditions.  The director will have your form when you come to auditions but may ask for some additional information.  Thanks.

SynopsisScrew the mid-life crisis; let’s solve some crimes! Middle-aged mom Liz has a new man. And let’s face it… he’s just plain creepy. When a mysterious disappearance sets the community on edge, Liz’s best friends leap to the rescue as the zany caper flings them from the ‘burbs to the wilds of Utah; because there’s no danger great enough to stop women from solving crimes if they want to! A riotous comedy about trading in wine glasses for spy glasses when the mid-life crisis just isn’t your speed. (borrowed from the Merrimack Repertory Theater’s web page.)
