MURDER IN MEXICO

Murder mystery DINNER theatre productions

ACTORS SOUGHT for ENGLISH SPEAKING THEATRE ROLES FOR LENGTHY PRODUCTION IN PUERTO VALLARTA

PRODUCTION SYNOPSIS:        We need actors and understudies for our murder mystery dinner theatre show to run in Puerto Vallarta, which will preview in October and run from November for the season.   While one show a week may be the start figure it should quickly climb to two shows, and then more.  The clientèle will be almost exclusively gringos.  All roles are dramatic comedy, so actors need to have a strong sense of humour.

WE SEEK:     Actors, professional or amateur to date.  We need understudies as well.  People who at the least aspire to acting or some other entertainment role for which having a season of a theatre role would be helpful to the career record, or people who would like to work part time and have a sense of adventure.  Fluent English skills, both spoken and written, are imperative.  These are properly remunerated roles.  Please apply only if you can commit for the run of the initial season, which will be from about October 2016 to about April 2017, and can also commit to availability for learning lines in a timely fashion, and being available to attend readthroughs and rehearsals as required, to commence August 2016.

IF YOU HAVE NOT YET PLEASE look at the rough amateur video of a dress rehearsal last year for the show My Big Fat Mexican Murder: http://www.murderinmexico.com/?page_id=102.   For further information email to wendy@murderinmexico.com.  That is the address to send this application to when it is completed.

To an extent, actors can choose their level of commitment in relation to which evenings are worked and how often, and should be clear about how much or how little they want to work, as we wish to be as accommodating as possible.
