Thomaston >> Grab your favorite guys and ghouls and join us this Fall and Holiday season.

Connecticut’s highly acclaimed, interactive comedy wedding and murder mystery dinner shows are auditioning new cast members. AspenDream Productions™, will hold auditions for their Fall/Holiday Season as well their 2018 Season on Saturday, August 19 and Sunday, August 20 beginning at 1 PM by appointment in Thomaston. The productions are directed by Janice Luise-Lutkus of Burlington and managed by Barbara Harvey. These interactive and scripted shows are presented throughout the State of Connecticut. All roles are open to audition. Performers must be ages 18+. Auditioners will be asked to read from the script and those that are able to sing will prepare 16 bars of an up-tempo, a capella song.

AspenDream Productions™ is cooking up some dangerously good fun in their 20th year. Roles are open for males and females ages 18-80. All ethnicities are encouraged to audition. Positions are paid.

The shows, which first opened in 1997 to sold-out audiences, aren’t your typical comedic plays. They are hilarious, unique murder mystery farces and the audience members aren’t just audience members — they are guests who interact with the notorious Uncle Franco and his mobster family. With the Fall and Holiday Season underway, everyone in ‘the family’ is working hard to make this a spectacular season to remember! Character descriptions can be found on the AspenDream Productions™ web site,

Rehearsals for on-going shows throughout the year are held on Sunday afternoons in Harwinton or in Thomaston. There are generally three to four rehearsals per show from 4:00-7:00pm. If you are unable to make the mandatory rehearsals for the show you are cast in, we will be unable to cast in a production. There are a number of shows per year at top venues throughout the state. Artists do not have be in every show and are not guaranteed to be cast in every show.

When you audition, you are auditioning to become part of the “AspenDream Production’s theater company”. Or as we say, “the family”.Those that don’t have extensive experience should state clearly why they feel they would be a good fit for our enthusiastic, professional group. The ability to sing is a plus but is not required. We are looking for all types of performers – males and females of all ages, from ingénues to character actors. Consistency and the ability to work with an ensemble are a must.

AspenDream Productions™ is a non-union professional, regional theatre company. We offer compensation for performers.

Auditions are by appointment only. Please visit our website at . to schedule your appointment. An audition confirmation e-mail will be sent with full details on what will be expected at your audition. Please be specific as to the date you would like to schedule your appointment.
