About the Company:
And More Shenanigans Productions is dedicated to creating and developing quirky original works.
About the Show:
Murder Mime the Musical is an absurdist black comedy about an opera student who loses his voice and becomes a “serial killer.” Murder Mime the Musical originally appeared at the Edmonton Fringe Festival in 2014. Since then it has gone through many revisions while still remaining true to its unconventional roots. It was written and composed in Edmonton.
We are looking for the following roles:
Aleah: (Soprano) A blunt, intelligent and talented opera student, and Max’s love interest.
Rosemary: (Played by a young looking adult) Max’s exuberant nine year old neighbor who has no shame in declaring her love for him.
Sadie: Max’s judicious younger sister, who remains positive while battling bizarre health concerns.
Rosemary/Sadie will be double cast. There are many other small roles in this show, if cast, you may be asked to play an additional role(s).
