A Killer Class Reunion at the Stadium Theatre

When the class president decided to host a 15 year class reunion, she expected reminiscing, party games, and the occasional joke from the class clown. What she got was horror, chaos, and murder. She needs all the help she can get figuring out who is to blame. Is it the golden boy jock? Or the quiet nerd? Maybe the drama geek got tired of always being the understudy. Figure it out before another student drops out...of life.

Auditions for A Killer Class Reunion, written by Brian and Ashley Lopes, will be held on Tuesday, May 23rd in the Marquee Room at the Stadium Theatre. Auditions will be from 6:30 PM-9:30 PM. A resume and headshot is not required but strongly suggested.

All of those auditioning should prepare a short comedic monologue for the audition. It does not need to be memorized but it is preferred. Cold readings from the script will follow. Please arrive for 6:30 and plan on staying most of the evening. No appointments.

Director, Ashley Lopes, is looking for six men and three women to round out this comedic cast. Everyone is roughly the same age, some characters can look older due to "hard living" or younger due to "having work done." Rehearsal days will be determined with cast conflicts in mind.

Performance Dates are August 4th, 5th, and 6th.
