The Riverfront Playhouse will hold open auditions for Rope by Patrick Hamilton on Monday and Tuesday August 20 & 21 at 7:00 pm at the Riverfront Playhouse, 11-13 S Water Street Mall, Aurora, Il 60505.
About the show:
For the mere sake of adventure, danger, and the "fun of the thing," Wyndham Brandon persuades his weak minded friend, Charles Granillo, to assist him in the murder of a fellow undergraduate, a perfectly harmless man named Ronald Raglan.
Director Katrina Syrris is looking to cast a total of 2 women and 6 men for the show.
Wyndham Brandon: early 20s, fit, well to do, has a formidable presence, Oxford student
Charles Granillo: early 20s, smaller, a worrier, Oxford student, Brandon’s accomplice, and nuanced partner
Kenneth Raglan: early 20s, athletic, not an intellectual peer of his classmates, Oxford student
Leila Arden: early 20s, a friend of the Oxford boys, doe eyed, and pretentious
Sir Johnstone Kentley: mid sixties to early seventies, scholarly, a collector of books
Mrs. Debenham: His sister, fifties, flighty, but expresses frequent sly grins
Rupert Cadell: late twenties, early thirties, scholarly, perceptive, and world-weary
Sabot: a manservant
