WANT TO PAY "B. S. ARTISTS" TO POSE
AS INCOGNITO HOMICIDE SUSPECTS!

Keith & Margo's MURDER MYSTERIES of TEXAS
are having OPEN GENERAL AUDITIONS for it's Dallas/Fort Worth Troupe
2004 - 2005 Season
of Ultimate Interactive Adventures...

... Allowing amateur sleuths the chance to conduct their own intense
investigation into a simulated live-action homicide case [utilizing
ultra realistic, incognito improvisational performers -- requiring an
acting style as subtle and as REAL as an undercover DEA agent or a
con artist might use].

We are the Texas division of an international interactive
entertainment company with Headquarters in Hollywood, California. We
produce top-quality, audience-participation events with a hip,
modern-day theme. Imposters [actors] secretly infiltrate restaurant
tables as patrons during dinner in a restaurant or hotel -- where
simulated murders will occur, while witnesses/suspects [actors] are
interrogated by the Detective from the local Dallas/Fort Worth police
department [a stand-up improv comic type], and by real guests.
Script consists of some light, paraphrased dialogue for final scene
only.

We are the company who dares to ask: Who said Murder Mysteries have
to be cheesy, hokey, and campy? Who said Dinner Theatre has to be
Rubber Chicken meals?

What we do is NOT a glorified CLUE game. Think C.S.I. or Law and
Order, [not Scooby Doo]. It is very, very cool. And the cuisine is
often gourmet food.

Need multi-racial/multi-cultural casts -- articulate, educated,
preferably bi-lingual male and female actors -- ages 21 to 70. If
you're an ingenue, a leading man, a character actor or a character
actress, a senior, an ethnic/exotic, a male or female stand-up comic,
improv-trained or a Stage Manager... we are interested in considering
you for our local Dallas/Fort Worth troupe.

ALL PARTS PAID

Private Corporate Party performances are produced in Dallas/Fort
Worth, Texas at various local restaurant and hotel venues. Also,
weekly public performances are cast with new groups of actors per
month. Only work when you want to.

Performance dates are extremely flexible, allowing local troupe
members the freedom to participate in other projects.

They are the masterminds of the genre! By far the most professional
