Audition Description

The Mystery of Edwin Drood is a hilarious, interactive mystery musical that allows the audience to enter the action and become the ultimate detectives. In small town of Cloisterham, England, the young and charming Edwin Drood has been mysteriously murdered. But by whom? His leering romantic rival, John Jasper? The infamous purveyor of opium and vice, Princess Puffer? The mysterious Landless twins, newly arrived from Ceylon? Or someone else even more dastardly and villainous? Dickens passed away before he was able to reveal the culprit. Rupert Holmes' award-winning musical solves this predicament by asking the audience to choose which character is the killer by putting it to a vote.

2 jobs within 10 day of signed-up !! YOU GUYS ARE AMAZING We signed up with Explore Talent on Oct 14th, two weeks ago. The very next day we were offered a job with the ISO/JOICO hair show !! Since then we've already been matched with another job (this one for several weekends), and have made it to the final selection for two Advertising spots in the San Antonio area. My daughter is so thrilled !! The service provided by the individuals I've dealt with at Explore Talent has been top-notch. David & Dustin in the Booking Dept. and Brittain in Cust. Service have gone above and beyond in answering my questions and providing information !! In fact, it feels as though I am talking with people that personally know us, rather than being treateded like "a number". THANKS - YOU GUYS ARE AMAZING !!! Stephanie Webster & MOM
