Auditions


A Family Reunion to Die For

Auditions for the next Murder at the Music Box will be held on Sunday & Monday, June 17 & 18 at 7pm.

This comedy mystery by Mike Steele & Matt Steele has a cast of cousins played by dozens. Perhaps fewer than that, but all interested actors aged 16 & older are welcome.

The joyful Knotting Family Reunion quickly turns sour when Aunt Gretchen, Cousin Rachel, and Cousin Stefan are all murdered! To make matters worse, a terrible storm has trapped all of the guests inside. Who is trying to wipe out the Knotting family? Is it the pair of squirrel-hunting hillbilly sisters with their rifle? The former Vegas showgirl with a knack for knitting? The maid with a single digit IQ? The grouchy cook? The bitter journalist? The troupe of mimes?

Opportunities for audience interaction and improv!

Production dates are July 19, 20, 21, 22

Please bring all rehearsal conflict dates to auditions. No performance conflicts will be allowed.

Auditions will be held at the Music Box Dinner Playhouse, 196 Hughes St, Swoyersville, PA 18704. Call 570 283-2195 for more information.

THERE IS NO FEE FOR ANYONE TO AUDITION or PERFORM IN ANY MUSIC BOX MAINSTAGE PRODUCTION.

Father Joe Scholarship
In 2008, the Music Box honored the memory of a dear friend by dedicating the production of “THE MUSIC MAN” to

The Reverend Joseph T. "Father Joe" Gilbert

and adding a Star in his honor to our
“Theatre of the Stars.”

We continue this memorial by asking all performers and friends of community theatre who knew and loved Father Joe to contribute to a scholarship fund so a few deserving children, who would otherwise be financially unable, can attend our Children’s Summer Theater Workshop each year. Monies collected will be added to the fund and used each year to assist identified recipients. Any amount contributed will be greatly appreciated.

You can support this scholarship program via Paypal:

Use the "Add special instructions to the seller" box to indicate your donation is for the Father Joe Scholarship.

Donations can be also be sent to the theatre:

Music Box Dinner Playhouse
196 Hughes Street
Swoyersville, PA. 18704

Checks should be made out to "Music Box Players". Please write “Father Joe Scholarship” on the envelope and on the check memo line.

Father Joe’s family and Father Sempa will be notified with a complete list of all donors, and will assist in selecting scholarship recipients.

For more information, please contact The Music Box Dinner Playhouse at 570-283-2195 or email office@musicbox.org
