The Coaster Theatre Playhouse will hold auditions for its summer repertory productions of Ken Ludwig’s “Baskerville: A Sherlock Holmes Mystery” and “Musical of Musicals: The Musical,” March 19 and March 20.
Ken Ludwig’s “Baskerville: A Sherlock Holmes Mystery” is a murderously funny adventure written by the award-winning comedic playwright Ken Ludwig based on Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s classic “The Hounds of Baskerville.” Auditions will be held on Tuesday, March 20, at 7:30 p.m. and Wednesday, March 21, at 6:30 p.m. The show will open on June 22 and run through Sept. 2, playing two or three nights per week through the summer months.
“Musical of Musical: The Musical” is a musical about musicals. In this entertaining parody of musical theatre, one story becomes five distinct musicals written in the style of a different master of the form from Rodgers and Hammerstein to Stephen Sondheim. Auditions will be held on Monday, March 19, at 6:30 p.m. and Tuesday, March 20, from 6 to 7:30 p.m.
Anyone interested in auditioning for one or both of the summer shows but unable to make auditions is encouraged to contact the Coaster Theatre at 503-436-0609 to make alternate arrangements. More information can be found at coastertheatre.com/calendar/auditions.
