Ten strangers are summoned to a remote island. All that the guests have in common is a wicked past they’re unwilling to reveal and a secret that will seal their fate. As the weather turns and the group is cut off from the mainland, the bloodbath begins and one by one they are brutally murdered in accordance with the lines of a sinister nursery rhyme.
Auditions will be an open call and will consist of cold readings from the script.
Casting: 3 Women + 8 Men
The dignified butler. Rogers continues to be a proper servant even after his wife is found dead and the bodies begin piling up.
Rogers’s wife. Ethel is a frail woman, she is frantic and anxious.

A former governess who serves as a secretary to Mrs. Owen. Vera is intelligent and capable, but she also suffers from attacks of hysteria, feels guilty about her crime, and reacts nervously to the uncanny events on the island.
A mysterious, confident, and resourceful man who seems to have been a mercenary soldier in Africa. Lombard is far bolder and more cunning than most of the other characters, traits that allow him to survive.
A rich, athletic, handsome youth. Tony Marston likes to drive recklessly and seems to lack a conscience.
A former police inspector. Blore is a well-built man whose experience often inspires others to look to him for advice. He acts boldly and frequently takes initiative, but he also makes frequent blunders. He constantly suspects the wrong person, and his boldness often verges on foolhardiness.
The oldest guest. Once the first murders takes place, Mackenzie, already guilt-ridden about his crime, becomes resigned to his death and sits by the sea waiting for it to come to him.
A ruthlessly religious woman who reads her Bible every day. Unlike the other characters, Emily Brent feels convinced of her own righteousness.
SIR LAWRENCE WARGRAVE
Wargrave is a highly intelligent man with a commanding personality. Wargrave’s experience and air of authority make him a natural leader for the group. A strong sense of justice.
A gullible, slightly timid doctor. Armstrong often draws the suspicion of the other guests because of his medical knowledge. He is a recovering alcoholic, and while professionally successful, has a weak personality, making him the perfect tool for the murderer.

Rodgers & Hammerstein’s first collaboration remains, in many ways, their most innovative, setting the standards and rules of modern musical theatre. In a Western territory just after the turn of the 20th century, a high-spirited rivalry between local farmers and cowboys provides a colorful background for Curly, a charming cowboy, and Laurey, a feisty farm girl, to play out their love story. Their romantic journey, as bumpy as a surrey ride down a country road, contrasts with the comic exploits of brazen Ado Annie and hapless Will Parker in a musical adventure embracing hope, determination, and the promise of a new land.
