AUDITION NOTICE - 2019 Spring Show "Death and Taxes"
Release Date: February 12, 2019

Auditions are being held by the Iron Mountain Stage Company for its upcoming Spring 2019 show “Death and Taxes”, a who-done-it comedy. 

“Death and Taxes” Synopsis:

Ever wonder what goes on at a small-town city council meeting? In Hendricks, they're looking for a murderer. Mayor Kathleen Lyles boldly announces that the meeting will be more like a coroner's jury than the usual round of arguments. Not only was a man murdered, but he was an employee of the IRS. "Somehow I don't feel that bad!" Carl Johansen says, as the sheriff clamps the cuffs on him, making him the prime suspect. Slowly it becomes apparent the entire city council had seen the man, and each of them seems to be hiding something. Who murdered the stranger? Was it Cora Sedgewick, who was still dizzy at the time from stepping on a rake and being thumped in the face with its handle? Or newspaper editor King, who's right on the spot to report the facts, if he could only find a pencil? Or maybe the mayor herself, who was doing her laundry in the back of city hall?

Show performances are being planned for April; details to follow soon.  

Cast is five (5) women and four (4) men.
