Pontiac Theatre IV Announces Auditions for Curse of the Werewolf

By on July 27, 2019

Pontiac Theatre IV is pleased to announce auditions for its upcoming comedy, Curse of the Werewolf,” directed by Scott Talas and produced by Gary Essenmacher.

Buzz Haliburton, an entertainer fallen on hard times, is summoned by his mysterious uncles to Gargoyle House, a spooky castle on a lonely New England island. Buzz and his partner, Admiral Byrd (a penguin who tap dances to “Puttin’ on the Ritz”), encounter a bizarre assortment of “family” and “friends.” Colonel Snipes plots to blow up the island while his wife wears evening gowns all day. Little Messalina, the resident child terror, keeps baby piranhas for pets. The menacing housekeeper often appears without her head. Due to a family curse, there is a werewolf in the house, and the gardener is probably insane. Murders abound, lights flicker, and romance blossoms in this crazy spoof written by Tim Kelly.

Mrs. Grimm … Housekeeper
Joan Tarbucle … Attorney
Little Messalina … Child Terror
Algernon Snipes* … Master of Gargoyle House
