Audition Description

It is December 1936, and Broadway star William Gillette, admired the world over for his leading role in the play Sherlock Holmes, has invited his fellow cast members to his Connecticut castle for a weekend of revelry. But when one of the guests is stabbed to death, the festivities in this isolated house of tricks and mirrors quickly turn dangerous. It is then up to Gillette himself, as he assumes the persona of his beloved Holmes, to track down the killer before the next victim appears. The danger and hilarity are non-stop in this glittering whodunit set during the Christmas holidays.

Please prepare a one minute comedic monologue.

    The company's character actor, Felix is histrionic; he is a true theatrical who has given his life for the stage; Gillette's best friend and occasional sidekick, married to Madge; actor must be physically strong.

#1 Got major roles in TWO movies 07-07-06 Well Explore Talent...you've done it again! I just came back from a screentest in Washington, D.C. Before returning home I was offered major roles in not one, but TWO movies and I am being considered for the LEAD in a third. -- Thanks Explore Talent! - Cheryl Denise #2 Been booked for a film within one week! Thank you so much Explore Talent! I have been with you for only about a week and have already been booked for a film! It is so exciting to check onto your site and find out that nearly every day I have been either given gigs for which I can submit myself or better yet, by the time I get the information, you have already submitted me! The best thing about it is that these are not just castings where you are just a barely visible extra if you are lucky. They are quality castings with real credits. Even with an agent, you often times are not going to get this level of activity right from the start. You are great, how do you do it?! Thank you and Best Regards! -- Cheryl Denise
