the pied piper children's theatre
Coming this Fall
MacDeath: a Scottish Slay
in Two Halves
Ghosts, murder, meta commentary, all backstage of a production of Shakespeare's Scottish Play (begins with Mac, ends with Beth). When the star of the show is murdered, Rosalind, the stressed out stage manager, and Beatrice, the gentle leading lady, are the only ones who have the brains to solve the mystery. Everyone's a suspect and nobody feels ready for opening night which, in case we didn't mention it, is tomorrow! They question the cast and crew and discover that everyone had means, motive, and opportunity except for the concierge, Robin Puck. That's when the second murder occurs. With the show running onstage and the culprits running backstage, Rosy and Bea have a mess on their hands.
A classic whodunnit with modern, meta twists, it's a rollicking rollercoaster ride for the whole family.
No prior knowledge of Shakespeare necessary!
Auditions for Pied Piper Theatre's Fall teen play will be held in person on September 6th and 7th, from 6-8:30pm.
For ages 12-18. Location TBA.
Be prepared to read from sides.
If desiring a leading role, please come prepared with a one-minute monologue, either classical or contemporary.

I think it's incredible that I have the luck of living in a neighborhood where they have a theatre and I can perform in it.

I've learned a lot, not just as a performer but as a person. I don't think I'd be the person I am today without it.
Tamara, age 15
One word that makes me think of Pied Piper is... happiness.
