The British Player announce auditions for their production of

THE MYSTERY OF EDWIN DROOD
BY RUPERT HOLMES
DIRECTED BY LAURA W. ANDRUSKI /MUSIC DIRECTION BY OMAR LATIRI
CHOREOGRAPHY BY VALERIE MIKLES /PRODUCED BY TERI KLEIN ALLRED

Based on Charles Dickens’ final unfinished novel, this hilarious whodunit invites the audience to solve the mystery by choosing the identity of the murderer.  The tale is presented as a show-within-a show, as the Music Hall Royale – a delightfully loony Victorian theatre company – presents Dickens’ brooding mystery. Musical numbers include “Perfect Strangers,” “Don’t Quit While You’re Ahead,” “Off to the Races” and “Moonfall”.
