PEGASUS THEATRE AUDITION NOTICE

Auditions for “The Color of Death!”, a comedy murder-mystery presented in Living Black & White ™ by Kurt Kleinmann, will be held in the Parlor at the First United Lutheran Church in Dallas on Saturday, September 28 and Sunday, September 29. Michael Serrecchia will direct the production.

Audition times are Saturday 1 – 5:30pm and Sunday 5:30 – 9pm. The First United Lutheran Church is at 6202 E. Mockingbird Ln.

Rehearsals begin November 21. There will be both a Thanksgiving Break (5 days) and a Christmas break (4 days.) Rehearsal dates are listed on the audition form. Rehearsals will be in the evening.

This is the only 3-Act Living Black & White ™ Hunsacker adventure—and Act 2 is in vivid color! Harry Hunsacker, would-be actor turned would-be detective, and his paid-by-the-hour-assistant and friend Nigel Grouse are enlisted by the Army to join forces with Lt. Foster in 1944 and go undercover to infiltrate a top-secret Nazi research lab in Bavaria. They quickly discover the Nazis have a history-changing weapon they are about to unleash which will dramatically alter the world as we know it. It’s up to Harry to destroy this weapon before it can be used. Better send flowers!

The production begins previews on December 29, 2019 and runs through January 19, 2020. There is a performance on New Year’s Eve. A complete rehearsal and performance calendar is on the audition sign-up page.
