WHATCo to Hold Auditions for "Deadly Dessert Championship"

(WEST HUDSON, NJ) -- The West Hudson Arts & Theater Co (WHATCo) will host open auditions for its annual dinner theater fundraiser, Deadly Dessert Championship, an original murder mystery written and directed by local award-winning playwright, author, and WHATCo Board Member Allyssa Hynes. Auditions will be held in person at the Theater at WHATCo, 15 Frank E. Rodgers Blvd. South, Harrison, NJ on Tuesday, January 16th and Wednesday, January 17th from 7:00pm to 9:00pm. Call backs (if needed) will be January 19th.

During Deadly Dessert Championship, a new reality TV baking show is underway, and the competition is killer!! When a judge is murdered what’s said off-camera is just as important as what is said on screen. Who would be willing to kill to win? This lighthearted murder mystery dinner show combines scripted scenes with moments of improv where actors will talk with dinner guests in character.

At auditions, actors will read from sides and participate in improv exercises. Visit whatconj.org/auditions for audition sides and additional information. There is great flexibility for gender and age in casting for many of the roles.

West Hudson Arts & Theater Company values diversity and inclusion in casting, and in all other areas of the organization.

Rehearsals will begin in January, exact date to be determined. Performances of Deadly Dessert Championship will take place on Friday and Saturday, March 22-23, 2024.
