The Broomfield Community Players announce auditions for CAT’S CRADLE by LESLIE SANDS.
Our company uses the Community Standards for Theatre for Colorado
PERFORMANCE DATES: April 27 @ 7:00 p.m., April 28 @ 7:00 p.m., and April 29 @ 2:00 p.m. at the Broomfield Auditorium.
Set in an old coach house in a remote English village, CAT’S CRADLE concerns an almost forgotten kidnapping, and perhaps murder, which was never solved. As the play begins, the original inspector returns to reopen the investigation. However, his efforts are hindered as it becomes increasingly clear that he is facing a conspiracy of silence from the local townspeople and a past which is shrouded in mystery. The final resolution provides a completely unexpected twist to this compelling psychological mystery thriller.
