Producing Murder in Elsinore

Murder in Elsinore (comedy)
We have two versions of the play available. The full cast version features physical comedy from most characters, and one Stooge-type character. The Sound actor serves as the actual sound technician and produces effects, and music cues, as well as acts as stage hand.

For smaller, library-type performances, we have a less elaborate, 8 person script, which simplifies some of the characters, and eliminates the sound technician.

Full Cast Version
Cast 9: As written, 4M, 5F. However, 5 roles could be played by either gender.
Set: bare rehearsal stage
Length: 90 minutes with two fifteen minute intermissions
Permission to perform the show includes a copy of the script, the clue-laden Program Book and crime scene report.

Note: This play is protected by U.S. and international copyright laws.

I want to preview the script.
