“An inspired whodunit…a snappy, clever drawing-room mystery” -The Cleveland Plain Dealer
In the play Broadway star William Gillette, admired the world over for his portrayal of Sherlock Holmes, has invited his fellow cast-members to his Connecticut castle for a weekend of revelry. When one of the guests is stabbed to death, festivities turn dangerous. Gillette tries to solve the murder.
There was a real William Gillette who was the star of the American stage during the early part of the 20th century. He wrote the play, Sherlock Holmes, in collaboration with Sir Arthur Conan Doyle and starred in it for 1,300 performances.

Auditions for The Last Night of Ballyhoo

 

Auditions for “The Last Night of Ballyhoo” by Alfred Uhry

Auditions for “The Last Night of Ballyhoo” will be held on Saturday Nov. 29 and Sunday the 30th from 1:00-3:00 PM both days at Wichita Community Theatre.

Auditions will consist of cold readings from the script.
Roles are available for 3 men (early 20’s up) and 4 women (early 20’s and up). Directed by Kevin Sowers.

The comedy is set in the upper class German-Jewish community living in Atlanta, Georgia in December 1939. Hitler has recently conquered Poland, Gone with the Wind is about to premiere, and Adolph Freitag (owner of the Dixie Bedding Company) and his sister Boo and nieces Lala and Sunny – a Jewish family so highly assimilated they have a Christmas tree in the front parlor – are looking forward to Ballyhoo, a lavish cotillion ball sponsored by their restrictive country club. Ballyhoo is where matches are made. Parents search for the perfect Jewish husband for their daughters and daughters must marry the right man.
