It is December 1936 and Broadway star William Gillette, admired the world over for his leading role in the play Sherlock Holes, has invited his fellow cast-members to his Connecticut castle for a weekend of revelry. But when one of the guests is stabbed to death, the festivities in this isolated house of tricks and mirrors quickly turn dangerous. Then it’s up to Gillette himself, as he assumes the persona of his beloved Holmes, to track down the killer before the next victim appears. The danger and hilarity are non-stop in this glittering whodunit set during the Christmas holidays.


The women are:

Martha Gillette: Older woman in her 70s. Mother of William. “somewhat vague and dithering”.

Madge Geisel: Actress. Wife to Felix Geisel. early 40s. “flamboyant and wry in a Rosalind Russel smart-mouthed-gal-about-town sort of way”

Aggie Wheeler: Actress, recently married to Simon. 25 years old. “Beautiful, bright-eyed and full of spunk.”

Daria Chase: Play Critic. early 30s. “Gorgeous, glamorous”, “sense of humor” quick wit and jabbing pokes.

Harriet Goring: Inspector. mid 40s. “British, eccentric, one of a kind. One minute she seems wry and clever; the next minute she’s off into a world of her own.”

The men are:

William Gillette: Actor. He’s a famous Sherlock Holmes actor and became the face of Sherlock Holmes in his day. early 40s. “smartly dressed, good-humored, full of irony and life.”

Felix Geisel: Actor. Williams long time friend. early 40s. He is “histrionic and arch in a Lionel Barrymore / Sir Toby Belch sort of way”.

Simon Bright: Actor. recently married to Aggie. 25 years old. “sweet and enthusiastic”.


Thank you and we look forward to seeing you at auditions!

CCT Youth Theater One Acts

CCT Youth Theater brings to the stage two one act plays in June.
Witch Hunt by Stuart Ardern
Witch Hunt tells the story of a village’s fears and suspicions of an old woman who appears to be practicing witchcraft. This is a more serious drama rather than a comedy, but it’s suitable for the whole family.
All the Bases by Alan Haehnel.
In an effort to create the perfect production, the cast begins by reading the “survey results” they got from the audience in response to the question, “What do you want from a play?” Based on these responses, the cast creates a checklist and presents a play meeting all 15 audience requirements. The hilarious result is its “short-cheap-educational-safe, non-schedule-interfering, colorfully-costumed-interestingly-set, photogenic, Shakespearean, self-esteem-building, combative-musical-repartee-filled, stars-your-precious-child, contains-no-scratching-or-picking-of-the-embarrassing-variety…show!”
This is a great opportunity to see the valley’s next generation of talent and it’s fun for the whole family.
June 7th and 8th 7pm Tolt Middle School
Tickets $8 adults $6 youth/senior at the door

Noises Off!


Cascade Community Theatre presents

“Noises Off” 
By Michael Frayn

Saturday March 16th, 7:30 pm

“The most dexterously realized comedy ever about putting on a comedy. A spectacularly funny, peerless backstage farce. This dizzy, well-known romp is festival of delirium.” – The New York Times
“The funniest farce ever written! Never before has side-splitting taken on a meaning dangerously close to the non-metaphorically medical.” – The New York Post
“As side-splitting a farce as I have seen. Ever? Ever.” – The New York Magazine
