Center Stage Community Playhouse is holding auditions for Charles Busch's zany parody Die, Mommie, Die!, directed by Shani Murfin (A New Brain). This comic melodrama evokes the 1960's movie thrillers that featured such aging cinematic icons as Bette Davis, Joan Crawford, Lana Turner and Susan Hayward. Faded pop singer, Angela Andrews, is trapped in a corrosive marriage to film producer, Sol Sussman. In her attempt to find happiness with her younger lover, an out of work TV star, Angela murders her husband with the aid of a poisoned suppository. In a plot that reflects both Greek tragedy as well as Hollywood folklore, Angela's resentful daughter, Edith, convinces Angela's emotionally disturbed son, Lance, to avenge their father's death by killing their mother. Lance, demanding proof of Angela's crime, slips some LSD into her after-dinner coffee, triggering a wild acid trip that exposes all of Angela's dark secrets. Production Dates: November 6, 7, 8, 13, 4, 15, 20, 21, 2009 Evenings at 8pm, Sundays at 2pm. No Pay. Seeking:
