Auditions - Done to Death


The Belfry proudly announces AUDITIONS for our season opener

Done to Death
A Mystery-Comedy done in Two Acts
Directed by Nancy Lafferty

Done to Death is a murder mystery comedy written by Fred Carmichael. The plot focuses on five has-been mystery fiction writers who are brought to the mysterious Vulture’s Vault to collaborate on and write a new murder mystery TV series. When real murders start to happen, hilarity ensues.
The play is a huge parody of the murder mystery genre as the writers have their own styles that they use in hopes of figuring out the murders. Fast-paced and full of action!!
