Funny Midlands based men and women required for Comedy Murder Mystery Dinner Company for series of shows at Birmingham venue throughout the year.

We have been booked for one show a month at a chain restaurant, with the first two shows selling out in record time and we want to recruit a large Birmingham based company cast to appear in them.

Laugh and Let Die are a Manchester based company that have been performing for 6 years, and after experiencing massive growth in the last 12 months, we are looking to recruit local teams of actors for shows across the country.

We perform several different formats and themes, and the shows we are casting for here are our most popular two hander dinner party shows.

You will be playing two parts in the show. The boorish American casting director (George/Georgina Mucus) and the incompetent lawyer (Tristan Mee/Sue Yurpantzoff).

In this format, the guests play the parts, so two casting directors come out first of all with a skit casting the parts and explaining the rules.

You will then return as the lawyer to the principal, who becomes the murder victim. The actor playing the murder victim returns as the detective, and you are recruited as the lawyer to all the suspects. You are ‘on stage’ with the suspects, supporting them as they are being questioned by the detective and the rest of the guests.

The show is pretty much all improvisation, so you will have to be able to think on your feet. We do have prompt questions that the detective gives to the guests to read out if they are struggling (which is often!), so you can have some ready made responses up your sleeve.

We are looking to book actors for a series of shows one the following dates.

YOU DO NOT HAVE TO BE AVAILABLE FOR ALL OF THE DATES! the ideal scenario is we will have a plenty of actors to choose from when casting each show. You will be performing with an actor that has performed in the show before, and will give you lots of support.

We are a comedy company and we are looking for funny people. We play it for laughs, there are no puzzles or codes to crack in our shows. We are there for the jokes!

THE AUDITION
We are requesting video auditions. You will be given the plot and character synopsis of one of the suspects you are defending, and questions that you may be asked by the guests in relation to their evidence. We want to see how you would answer, and we want you to make us laugh!
We will also want to see your American casting director doing some casting as well.

SPECIFICS
The fee is £65 per performance.
Call time at the venue is 6:00pm. Show time 7:00pm. On stage for about 45 mins, and then 3 x 20 minute segments between food courses. Finished (including clearing up) at around 11.00pm. Actual show finishes around 10.30pm.

We perform up and down the country and the business has blown up in the last twelve months. We have partnerships with Grosvenor Casino, CDG Restaurant Group, Match. com, Xtreme Events, Red Cactus Events, LastNightOfFreedom stag and hen parties, and many others, and are not expecting the growth of the business to slow down.
