Camille Dargus has fought her way up from humble beginnings to a glittering Manhattan lifestyle. She has beauty, brains, wealth, and a successful career as a jewelry designer for the leading lights of New York society. She also has a penchant for attractive young men. One night at a society gala she meets Billy, a handsome young waiter, and brings him back to her Soho apartment. But there’s more to Billy than meets the eye, and Camille finds herself held hostage at gunpoint by a man who seems frighteningly familiar with the past Camille has struggled to forget. Over the course of one explosive night, Camille must use all her wits and cunning to save her life–and to prevent the dark secrets of her past from destroying everything she’s worked for. This brilliantly intricate thriller is full of twists and turns, bluffs and double bluffs.

Audition information from the Director:  Auditions will be three pretty basic sections. 1). We want to talk to you in a setting that hopefully “takes the edge off a bit.” You know, to find out a little bit about you as a person and your personality. Much more relaxed than a job interview, I swear. More details soon. 2). We’ll read some scenes from the show. Big ol’ friendly reminder: it’s the play and not the movie. Misters Curry, Bostwick, and Ms. Sarandon are AMAZING but we’re not looking for any imitations. We’re interested in what you bring to it. 3) We want to hear you sing. I personally like to hear a song from the show but it can just as easily be another song you’re comfortable with presenting. So long as you understand that, if cast in the show, you will ultimately be required to sing songs from the show. Which is okay, because there are definitely some good ones in there. Another big ol’ friendly tip is that this is rock and roll. I’ll let that sink in and then I’ll say it again. (Whistling something you can dance to). This is rock and roll. While the ability to carry a tune IS important, we are not necessarily looking for the polished classical training and perfect vibrato. Those are cool and admirable things. But the ability to rock out and be a little messy is more important. Getting the feeling of a song-to be able to act while you sing and vice versa are optimum qualities in an RHS performer. 4). I think I added an extra number. I like a Rocky Horror Show that is real, despite the wacky scenario. If you make us laugh, gasp, cry, or say “whoa,” that’s a huge part of the job. 5). Damn it (Janet), that is DEFINITELY an extra number. But don’t be like me, okay? Relax and have fun with it.
