OPEN AUDITIONS for Little Theatre of Watertown...
The Elephant Song
By Nicolas Billon
March 11 & 12, 2013 at 7 pm at Black River Valley Club
An eminent psychiatrist has vanished from his office. The last person to see him is Michael, a troubled patient obsessed with all things ele-phants. Dr Greenberg, the hospital director, is determined to interro-gate Michael, ignoring the head nurse's cryptic warnings. Michael speaks of elephants and opera — with the occasional hint of murder and foul play. Fraught with mind games and verbal tugs-of-war, The Elephant Song is a cat-and-mouse game that will keep you guessing.

Murder by the Book

Parts for 3 men, 2 women
Show Dates: May 23, 24, 25, 26, 30 & 31, June 1 & 2, 2013
- Selwyn Piper (40 or older): Well groomed, erudite and self-assured with a ready but somewhat sardonic wit.
- Imogen Piper (40 or older; younger than Selwyn): An attract-tive ex-actress displaying theatrical charm and composure which often fail to conceal her strangely mixed feelings for her husband. At verbal fencing she is almost a match for him, but not quite.
- John Douglas (40 or older): Bluff, immaculately turned-out bachelor with an easy charm which disintegrates into bewilderment under stress. He is intellectually inferior to both Selwyn and Imogen and often fails to appreciate the import of the deadly games they play on each other. As a result, he becomes a pawn in their hands.
- Christine (20's or 30's): An attractive, likeable girl who displays unobtrusive charm.
- Peter Fletcher (30's): At first he displays a light-hearted, frivolous manner and appears unable to take even the most solemn occasion seriously. During his most eccentric moments, however, he reveals flashes of acute intelligence which becomes more apparent as his character develops.
