Auditions: All The Better To Kill You With

The Tillamook Association for the Performing Arts (TAPA) is excited to announce open auditions for All The Better To Kill You With, a classic whodunit with a twist, where we not only get to see whodunit, but also how they plan they whole thing and carry it out.
Written by Fred Carmichael and directed by Brett Duer, All The Better To Kill You With is a clever interweaving of truth and falsehood that produces a tapestry of tension. The carefully planned deception almost works until truth rears its head and a brilliant structure of cunning
topples. The audience sees everything, so the question is not “whodunit,” so to speak, but rather will the murderer be found out. The result is high tension and good dramatic excitement.
Auditions will be held at The Barn Community Playhouse Saturday May 30thstarting promptly at 1:00 pm, and Sunday May 31st starting promptly at 5:00 pm. The Barn Community Playhouse is located at the corner of 12th& Ivy, in Tillamook, across from Les Schwab Tires.
