"Murder & Mayhem" Fundraiser
by Blunt Force Drama
"Murder & Mayhem" is an original cabaret style show which will focus on showcasing the talent we have within our theater community. It will be split up into two acts: Act 1 will be an open mic set-up, with performers doing short 4-8 minute slots of any performance related to true crime/murdery things, Act 2 will an improv show based upon a murdery concept which the audience will suggest at the beginning of the night.
After much work, Blunt Force Drama is finally moving forward with our fundraiser show, titled "Murder & Mayhem." The show will be on Saturday, April 13th at CRAFT on East Cesar Chavez. It will start at 8 pm, with doors at 7:30 pm. Call time for performers will be for 6:30 pm that night.
This is an audition notice for Act 1. We want the performance list set up in advance to give everyone time to hone their act. There will be only a few rehearsals for this show, so a lot of the work will be done on your own time. Your performance can consist of a musical act, a monologue, scene read, a true story, comedy performance, dance, anything really, as long as it pertains to our theme (murder & true crime). Act 1 will run approximately 45/50 minutes.
Auditions will be held during the day on Saturday, March 16th at Picture Box Studios, 701 Tillery Street, Austin, between 11 am - 2 pm. If you cannot attend the audition date, we will accept video/online submissions sent to bluntforcedramaATX@gmail.com by March 16.
Act 2 of the show will be a collaboration spearheaded by our own Mike and a local improv comedy troupe.
Thank you to everyone for your patience and we can't wait to move ahead with these productions!
