Audition for Beauty Pageant Massacre

From Roxie Pell ’15

If you’ve ever considered murder, consider auditioning for Beauty Pageant Massacre! This original dark comedy-thriller takes place at the 51st Annual Miss Middletown Pageant, where 6 women want nothing more than to win the title of “Miss Middletown.” They may even be willing to kill for it.

Auditions will be held in the Jones Room (all the way at the end of the CFA basically):

*No experience/preparation/bloodlust is necessary*, and you can come by at any time. Just be prepared to do a cold reading (possibly in cold blood). Performance dates are NOVEMBER 1-3. Questions/concerns/online dating requests? Hit up the inbox: rpell[at]wesleyan[dot]edu or cdeicke[at]wesleyan[dot]edu.

Date: Sept 5 and 6
Time: 8-10 pm
Place: Jones Room (CFA Theater and Dance Studios)
