Just Desserts - Auditions Closed

An immersive, interactive dinner theater experience where the actors are also your waiters.  Casting 5 paid, adult roles (4f, 1m).

Judge Reginald P. Cogsworth, a curmudgeon who hates sweets, is judging a charity bakeoff, albeit grudgingly. Countless entries have been whittled down to three: a tart submitted by Lucy "Scooter" Bright, owner of a nail salon; a Depression-era style cake by Edna Mae Carter, the local librarian; and a rich torte created by Margaret Mason, a local society lady. In the middle of tasting all the goodies, the judge falls dead, and it's up to Miss Peabody, the head of the contest, and the audience to determine the murderer. There are clues in the theatre, some hidden and some quite obvious. The audience also gets to question the three contestants, all of whom had some unhappy dealings with the judge in the past.
