Seeking WaterTower Theatre is seeking 8 actors for the upcoming holiday show Ken Ludwig’s The Game’s Afoot (or Holmes for the Holidays).
Breakdown Callbacks: Tuesday, August 27 (6pm-10pm)
William Gillette – Male, 40s. He is a strikingly handsome man, good-humored, full of irony and life. A sort of modern-day Ulysses.
Martha Gillette – Female, mid-70s. She is Gillette’s mother, a smartly dressed, somewhat vague and dithering woman.
Felix Geisel – Male, early 40s. He is histrionic and arch in a Lionel Barrymore/Sir Toby Belch sort of way.
Madge Geisel – Female, early 40s. Felix’s wife. She is flamboyant and wry in a Rosalind Russell smart-mouthed-gal-about-town sort of way.
Simon Bright – Male, 25. He is sweet and enthusiastic. Innately affectionate and good-natured.
Aggie Wheeler – Female, 25. She is beautiful, bright-eyed and full of spunk. Innately affectionate and good-natured. She and Simon make a wonderful couple.
Inspector Goring – Female, 40s. She is British, eccentric, and one of a kind. One minute she seems wry and clever, the next minute she’s off into a world of her own. She gets things wrong with¬out even knowing it, yet she also seems just the sort of person who can find you out when you’re lying. That makes her formidable.
Daria Chase – Female, 40s. She is gorgeous, glamorous and likeable. One of those people you can’t take your eyes off of. She has a sense of humor and has invented herself from the ground up, which is no mean feat.
