HAMMOND | Beatniks on Conkey, on behalf of Hammond Community Theater, is hosting auditions tonight for Agatha Christie's "The Mousetrap," the longest running play in England. Auditions will be held from 7 to 9 p.m. today at 418 Conkey St.
The play involves a group of strangers stranded in a boarding house during a snow storm, one of whom is a murderer. The suspects include the newly-married couple who run the house, a spinster with a curious background, an architect who seems better equipped to be a chef, a retired Army major, a strange little man who claims his car has overturned in a drift, and a jurist who makes life miserable for everyone. Into their midst comes a policeman, traveling on skis.
The cast requires 3 women, 5 men, all ages.
Performance dates are Feb. 7-9 and 14-16.
