Auditions (Airdrie/Calgary): Prescription: Murder


Torchlight Theatre is excited to announce auditions for…
Prescription: Murder
By: William Link & Richard Levinson​
Directed by Amber Bissonnette
Running November 21st to November 30th, 2019

Prescription: Murder tells the story of a brilliant psychiatrist and his mistress who hatch a murderous plot! Enter Lt. Columbo, who must engage the psychiatrist in a duel of wits until one is proved the victor. But is this seemingly forgetful detective up to the tasks? Or will the killers walk free?

Please prepare one contemporary monologue that highlights your range and ability. Monologues should be no longer than 1 minute in length. Upon registration, we will also send you a scene from the play to prepare.
​*Please also bring a headshot and resume to your audition.

We will only be seeing actors over the age of 18 at this time.

All auditions take place at the Polaris Centre for the Performing Arts
(8, 261051 Wagon Wheel View, Rocky View No. 44, AB)


  • MISS PETRIE – a pleasant, efficient woman in her fifties with a genuine liking for people.
  • DR. ROY FLEMMING – a polished, urbane New York psychiatrist. Highly civilized, pragmatic, with a cold, functioning intelligence. He wears conservative, artfully-tailored suits.
  • CLAIRE FLEMMING – a brittle, sardonic product of New York’s East side. She shows the strain of a loveless marriage.
  • SUSAN HUDSON – Young and extremely attractive, with a hint of latent sensuality. She is not particularly complicated.
  • LIEUTENANT COLUMBO – a rumpled police official of indeterminate age. He seems to be bumbling and vague, with an overly apologetic, almost deferential manner. .
  • DAVE GORDON – a smooth, boyish lawyer with his eye on a political future.
  • DELIVERY BOY – early twenties.

Rehearsals will take place in the evening and one day on the weekend.
