Auditions for holiday play announced
The Times


Hamilton County Theatre Guild announces auditions for its holiday play, "A Christmas Cactus," directed by Noblesville's Elaine Wagner.

Christmas Eve is tough for private investigator Cactus O'Riley when two fugitives burst into her office looking for justice and a dead detective named Jake Marley. She also doesn't need her secretary's mother, who arrives and decides to stay because she thinks this is the Christmas murder-mystery party she has always dreamed of attending.

Christmas turns into a dickens of a holiday for Cactus as she solves mysteries, delivers small miracles and dodges the affections of the Deputy D.A.

Comedy, mystery and romance converge in this charming contemporary Christmas tale where goodwill and justice triumph.

Auditions will be conducted at 7 p.m. Sunday, Sept. 24, and Monday, Sept. 25, at the Belfry Theatre, 10690 Greenfield Ave., Noblesville. Audionees should prepare a short monologue. There will also be readings from the script.

Here are the characters:

• Cactus O'Riley -- female private detective, age 20s-40s, attractive, cool and sophisticated; a Lauren Bacall type

• Fred Booker -- secretary to Cactus, 20s-30s, eager, ambitious, devoted to his mother

• Adelaide Booker -- Fred's mother, 50s-60s, naïve and unwittingly funny; believes she is swept up in a Christmas murder mystery party

• Stuart Windsor -- Deputy District Attorney, 30s-50s, charming, sophisticated and attempting to impress Cactus

• Neville Smedley -- 50s-60s, an unduly convicted embezzler looking for justice; a somewhat Don Knotts type

• Ramon Ramirez -- 20s-30s, very sincere, speaks with a Spanish accent, a Charles Dickens aficionado

This play is presented by special arrangement with Samuel French Inc.

Performance dates are 8 p.m. Friday and Saturdays, Nov. 17, 18, 24, 25, Dec. 1 and 2, at 2 p.m. matinees on Sundays, Nov. 26 and Dec. 3.
