Thriller "Mindgame" Auditions August 29, Tickets on Sale Sept. 6, NWFSC Students Free

Mattie Kelly Arts Center


8/12/2011 - Northwest Florida State College will hold open auditions for the fall theatrical production of Anthony Horowitz's triller Mindgame on Monday, August 29 in the Sprint Theater of the Mattie Kelly Arts Center on the Niceville campus. Sign-in begins at 6:00 p.m. and auditions start at 6:30 p.m. Callbacks will be Tuesday, August 30.

The play is directed by Clint Mahle and will be presented October 12 to 15 at the college. The director asks that those who audition prepare a one minute dramatic monologue with an English accent. For more information, call Mahle at 729-6007.

A Halloween treat, Mindgame follows a prominent author of novels and "true crime" stories who enters a secluded mental institution to interview a serial killer who has been confined there for thirty years. Mindgame was a riveting hit in London's West End and later Off-Broadway starring Keith Carradine and directed by Ken Russell.

The cast calls for two men and one woman, including "Mark Styler" the writer, "Doctor Farquar", the director of the hospital and "Nurse Plimpton", Farquhar's nurse. Styler believes he has snared the coup of his career by scheduling an interview with a serial killer. But, when he arrives at the asylum, "he finds nothing can be trusted, not even his own eyes. Through a series of lies, manipulations and memories, dark secrets are revealed. Why is there a skeleton in the doctor's office? Where did the raw meat in the fridge come from? What is the nurse so afraid of? And most importantly, how does one get out??"

Due to some intense violence, Mindgame is recommended for audiences ages 15 and up. Tickets for the production go on sale September 6 for $15 adult and $10 youth ages 18 and younger. Currently enrolled NWFSC students may receive one free ticket per student ID, in-person from the Box Office. For tickets, contact the Mattie Kelly Arts Center Box Office at 729-6000 or purchase online at ##
