This is an open-ended call for actors for ongoing Murder Mystery Dinners, produced by Murder Mystery USA, mostly in the Chicago suburbs and Milwaukee, but often in the city itself. Roles are available for all genders ranging in age from 20s to 60s. There are no other restrictions.
Our Murder Mysteries are loosely scripted with minimal memorization. A greater emphasis is placed on the actor’s availability to situationally improvise and to remember important plot points. Our events are fun and family-friendly. There are no formal rehearsals, but we do a walk-through of what will happen the night of before the event begins.
There is no formal audition. After reviewing your resume, we'll be in touch. Actors are "auditioned" in a trial by fire. We'll put you in a small, usually non-speaking role, to judge your ability to handle this style of dinner theater and to give you a chance to determin if its right for you.
Audition roles pay $50. Regular pay is $75 per event, plus dinner. Transportation will be provided, if needed.
We do have a limited number of roles for an upcoming Murder Mystery Dinner in Oak Brook this Friday, November 23, if you're really eager to get started.
To apply please submit a headshot and resume to firstname.lastname@example.org.
