CAST is looking for funny people.

Announcing auditions for THE PLAY THAT GOES WRONG, the next Mainstage show in this CAST season! Saturday, March 18 at 10 am and Tuesday, March 21 at 6 pm.  You may come to either audition; you do not have to come to both. They will be held at CAST Headquarters, 1005 Gurnee Avenue, in Anniston. Show dates for THE PLAY THAT GOES WRONG will be May 18-21.

These auditions will be a bit more comprehensive than usual because this show involves a large number of physical gags. In addition to reading lines from the script, auditioners will be asked to tell jokes, do improv, show off accents and take part in other comedy exercises. The only preparation you need is to memorize at least one really good joke and come dressed comfortably.

If you can’t make either of the audition times, you may contact the director, Mike Stedham, at and make arrangements for an alternative date.


About the show:  “From Mischief, Broadway masters of comedy, comes this smash hit farce. Welcome to opening night of the Cornley University Drama Society’s newest production, The Murder at Haversham Manor, where things are quickly going from bad to utterly disastrous. This 1920s whodunit has everything you never wanted in a show—an unconscious leading lady, a corpse that can’t play dead, and actors who trip over everything (including their lines). Nevertheless, the accident-prone thespians battle against all odds to make it through to their final curtain call, with hilarious consequences! Part Monty Python, part Sherlock Holmes, this Olivier Award–winning comedy is a global phenomenon that’s guaranteed to leave the audience aching with laughter!”
