“Busybody” auditions coming up

Bedford Players’ fall production is Busybody, a very funny mystery by Jack Popplewell (directed by Robin Saywood).

A body and interfering office cleaner, and a Detective Superintendent with a bad cold and a worse temper, make this a side-splitting comedy.

The cleaning lady, Mrs. Piper, lives in the basement of the office building she cleans and one night finds a dead body.

More bodies turn up all over the place as Superintendent Baxter and Sergeant Goddard try to get to the bottom of a mysterious series of events and murder.

Mrs. Piper skilfully hinders the investigation.

Needless to say, confusion occurs when the supposedly dead Mr. Marshall appears very much alive and as unpleasant as ever.

The production will run from October 28 to November 13 (Thursdays to Saturdays) with a matinee November 7.

The show will take place at Bedford Players Theatre (All Saints Church Hall), located at 1408 Bedford Highway, in Bedford.

Auditions will be held at the theatre on Wednesday, September 1 and Thursday, September 2 at 7 p.m.

Please fill out an audition form beforehand or at the audition.
