Male and female actors required for Comedy Murder Mystery Dinner in Chester on 31 January 2020.

Laugh and Let Die are a Murder Mystery company that have been performing for 7 years, and after experiencing massive growth in the last 12 months, we are looking to recruit local teams of actors for shows across the country.

There is one role available in this show for either a male or female, playing two parts. It’s all improv around a given plot, with just one paragraph of lines to learn for a scripted piece at the start.

The bulk of your part is answering questions guests are asking you, so you have to be able to think on your feet.

We are a comedy company and we are looking for funny people. We play it for laughs, there are no puzzles or codes to crack in our shows. We are there for the jokes!

The show is at the Chester Queens Hotel.

We have expanded massively in the last 12 months, and it is accelerating. We expect to do around 100 shows this year!

The fee for the show is £70

The show is pretty much all improvisation, so you will have to be able to think on your feet. We do have prompt questions that the detective gives to the guests to read out if they are struggling (which is often!), so you can have some ready made responses up your sleeve.

You will be performing with an actor that has performed several shows already with the company for who will give you lots of support.

THE AUDITION
There is no formal ‘audition’. We will look at your experience, and contact the people we think will be suitable. You will be given the script and we will do some hotseating of the character over the phone.

SPECIFICS
Call time at the venue is 6:00pm. Show time 7:00pm. On stage for about 45 mins, and then 3 x 20 minute segments between food courses. Finished (including clearing up) at around 11.00pm. Actual show finishes around 10.30pm.

We perform up and down the country and the business has blown up in the last twelve months. We have partnerships with Grosvenor Casino, CDG Restaurant Group, Match. com, Xtreme Events, Red Cactus Events, LastNightOfFreedom stag and hen parties, Chilli Sauce , and many others, and are not expecting the growth of the business to slow down.

We look forward to hearing from you. Please do not be deterred if you don’t think you are an exact match for this part. If you want to work with us, please submit anyway. We may decide you are brilliant for a different role in the near future!
We are hoping for performers from the local area, but if you are not based in this part of the world, then don’t be deterred from applying, but do consider your travel in the equation.
