Drop Dead!

Audition date: Aug. 08 - Aug. 09, 2022 at 7 pm
Remark: From rehearsal to opening night, a rag-tag group of actors try to stay alive for curtain call while a murderer is on the loose.

The Racine Theatre Guild will be holding open auditions for Drop Dead!
on Monday, August 8 and Tuesday, August 9 at 7 p.m.


A murderer may be on the loose, but the show must go on! A rag-tag cast of actors are desperately trying to revive their careers in a new murder mystery play, “Drop Dead!.” However, the set falls apart, props break, lines are forgotten, and their fellow theatre creators keep ending up dead. From rehearsal to opening night, the murders continue and mayhem ensues as the remaining actors try to save the show, solve the mystery, and stay alive for curtain call.
