Regarded as a premiere example of the murder-mystery genre, Agatha Christie’s The Mousetrap is rife with memorable characters. Set in Monkswell Manor in the 1920s, the plot revolves around a young couple running a newly established hotel where all the guests are “either unpleasant or odd.”

Auditions will be held at St Paul’s Leaskdale Church on Tuesday December 10 at 7 pm and Saturday December 14 at 3pm.

Callbacks will be Tuesday December 17 at 7pm.

Those who audition will be asked to read from the script for the following parts:

Mollie Ralston: mistress of the house, and ingénue who tries to be composed and professional, but lacks the proper training. Female, 20s to 30s.

Giles Ralston: arrogant, protective of his wife Mollie, and a touch condescending. Male, mid-20s to mid-30s.

Christopher Wren: neurotic, flighty, and fey young man. Some singing ability preferred. Male, 20s to early 30s.
