Seeking Men For Cia Drama – Detainee – 1438159
07-25-14 – Minneapolis, MN>Rapid City, SD –
Seeking two men for new play by local playwright Sam Graber.
Mission Theatre Company is casting for its fall Premiere production of Detainee.

DETAINEE explores the point at which society accepts torture to assure civic safety. When the state devises a political instrument to disarm violent situations, what happens to the basis of authority? At the core of DETAINEE is a story which delves into the psychology of terrorism and how America responds to severe violence.

DETAINEE is a play about a decision — whether or not to torture a US citizen. Lindsey is a middle-aged college professor who drives a middle-aged van and lives in a middle-aged house. She’s a middle-aged Mom with a middle-aged husband. She also has middle-aged problems, mostly stemming from her wayward teenage daughter, with whom she has a strained relationship. Outside of home, Lindsey has another problem. The United States is reeling from a string of domestic bomb threats which disrupt daily life. But when the threats turn real, and the first bomb explodes, Lindsey is asked to return to her former identity. And ultimately Lindsey must choose between allegiance to country and the sanctity of her home. — Project Type: Live Event

WAITING FOR MRS. CLAWS original script by Patti J. Hynes-McCarthy (resident script writer for the past 26 years)

Description of Show:
It is what seems like any other day in this northern MN rural clinic that tends to patients of both the human and animal variety. It’s Christmas Eve, the veterinarian has called in sick leaving a frantic medical doctor and awkward receptionist wanting to get out early. None of this is particularly unusual for the People and Paws Clinic. Until… an unfamiliar and thoroughly charming gentleman, who appears to be blind comes in with his sick cat, ‘Mrs. Claws’. At this point, the day becomes’enchanting’, as patients arrive in the waiting room for their appointments, but can’t seem to leave once they meet this sightless, but uniquely insightful man. This humorous, but touching musical comedy will be just the appointment needed for a meaningful Christmas.

Note: This show will be written upon casting it. We are looking for interesting characters to play patients, animal pet owners, others who would enter the clinic on Christmas Eve. People of all ages/ethnic backgrounds are welcome to audition. This is a small cast musical, so must be able to sing.

David Landau and Nikki Stern’s Murder at Cafe Noir opening this fall

The most popular mystery dinner show in the country, Murder at Cafe Noir has enjoyed weekly productions coast to coast since its premiere in 1989.

This forties detective story come to life features Rick Archer, P.I., out to find a curvaceous runaway on the forgotten island of Mustique, a place stuck in a black and white era.

The owner of the Cafe Noir has washed ashore, murdered, and Rick’s quarry was the last person seen with him. He employs his hard boiled talents to find the killer. Was it the French madame and club manager, the voodoo priestess, the shyster British attorney, the black marketeer or the femme fatale?

The audience votes twice on what they want Rick to do next and these decisions change the flow of this comic tribute to the Bogart era.
