Open Auditions for “Christmas at the Blizzard: A Murder Mystery” to be held September 6, 7, 13, & 14


Christmas at the Blizzard: A Murder Mystery returns to the Brush Creek stage.

Brush Creek Playhouse plans to close its 2017 season with the return of the marvelous mystery that first graced our stage in 2011. This parlor mystery by Emily and Michael Wood makes several conscious nods to Agatha Christie as it takes the audience down a series of twists and turns as the characters try to discover the truth – before it’s too late! The play is set at a remote bed and breakfast in the Northern California hills, and after gathering to celebrate the holidays in style, the characters discover that they are trapped at the Blizzard by a real blizzard. And one of their number is a killer!

Open auditions will be held at Brush Creek Playhouse (11535 Silverton Road (the intersection of Brush Creek & Silverton Roads) on the following days (although it is not required, interested individuals are encouraged to participate on multiple days if possible):

  • Wednesday, September 6 (7 pm)
  • Thursday, September 7 (7 pm)
  • Saturday, September 9 (1 pm)
  • Sunday, September 10 (1 pm)

We will use cold readings from the script and some other exercises. No monologues or other preparation is necessary, but it will be useful to have a record of any previous theater experience (first-time actors are also encouraged to try out).

Anyone interested in a role but unable to attend any of the auditions should contact director Michael Wood at or 503-508-3682 to make arrangements.

The production will run Friday, December 1 thru Sunday, December 17, with evening performances on Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays and matinees on Sundays.
