01-11-12 – Reno, NV>San Francisco, CA – Description of Play: In this classic Christie thriller, eight strangers gather for a weekend at a country house on an island off the coast of Devon, England. Neither they nor the married couple hired as domestics have met their host, but all are accused of murder by his disembodied voice on a gramophone. The alleged killers soon learn that they are trapped on the island as, one by one, they die. Each death is executed in accordance with a nursery rhyme, “Ten Little Soldier Boys,” framed over the mantelpiece. In every verse, one of the little soldiers is dispatched in a way that mimics the demise of each guest. After three murders, it is clear that the unknown host is one of them. All will surely perish, unless the last two standing can trust each other long enough to foil the plot of Mr. Unknown.

#1 Molly Muffet: A six year old girl, very brave and very smart for her age. We are looking for a girl within the age range of 6-12 years old. Looking for someone with musical theatre/acting experience. Must be able to sing.
Eat a grasshopper?! Eeeeeeeeeeeeeewwwww!!! No way!
Well nothing yet. Cuz you haven’t told me! Sometimes when my Mom says I’m being a little monster, she makes a cup of tea and we talk about our feelings. Would that help?
What? Is there a reason I should be scared? Are you gonna try to eat me? Oh no you don’t! I’m not gonna get eaten by any monster!
#2 Aloisius Albrecht Alviss Spider (Al): A six foot tall, very very old spider. The original spider that sat down beside her in the old nursery rhyme. The age need not be overdone. Just very classy, and very british. Must also be able to sing.
I’m not a monster Molly Muffet! I am a spider. A very very very old Spider. There is absolutely nothing unnatural about a spider growing this large. All it takes is time, proper diet and excercise, and very fast legs.
Relax child Im not going to eat you. I conform to a very strict diet of chocolate covered grasshoppers most of the time. They’re lovely in a warm fondue.
#3 Dr. BooBoo: A mad scientist who also happens to be a small monkey. Think Tarsir or Bushbaby. German accent (of course). Not high pitched. Ironically, a normal human speaking voice. Just that of a middle aged German mad scientist. Sings a bit.
Nein! Ze only truly intellighent being on ze planet Ears is se monkey! Und serefore, I am going to take it back from ze Humans!
HA HA HA HA HA HA HA!
Sat’s Dr. Booboo to you! I am se greatest scientific mind in das weld! Come along now you big baby. I’m not going to hurt you. I’m just going to conduct a few experiments on your brains und other places you don’t need to know about right now….
