Musical Comedy Murders of 1940 CAST!
The Whidbey Playhouse is pleased to announce the cast for Musical Comedy Murders of 1940, by John Bishop. Director Allenda Jenkins and Assistant Director Ben Honeycutt are proud of the cast they have assembled for Musical Comedy Murders of 1940. While the name implies Musical it is far from one. This is a comedy about a musical audition. Snowed in at their wealthy patron’s Westchester estate, a creative team reunites to launch a new show – stalked by the “Stage Door Slasher,” who haunted their last Broadway flop. Nazi saboteurs are also running loose on the coast of New York adding to the murder and mayhem. (NOT a musical. YES a comedy!)

The cast size is eight principal actors. Below you will find Character Descriptions for each of the 8 characters in the show.
Miss Kasandra Scarlet ~ Female, 20-40’s, Vocal Range: Wide with belt
A shrewd former Las Vegas lounge performer, Miss Scarlet is the sexy flirt of the suspects. She is also the former lover of Mr. Green. Miss Scarlett always has to be the center of attention. She is the kind of person who is usually dressed up rather than down. Orders a salad but eats off everyone else's plate. Has a lot of big, gaudy jewelry and a good heart. Scarlett knows she is beautiful and will flaunt that to her advantage. Scarlet has taken to dating wealthy bachelors. She jumps from one to the next without a thought, and will not hesitate in using her beauty to her advantage to guard herself.
Professor Victor or Victoria Plum ~ Male or Female, 30-40’s, Vocal Range: Baritone
A Super genius, author and imposter who communicates using his own jargon. Meaning he has an unusual vocabulary, but is not necessarily vast. For example, if you were to only have one conversation with him you would think, "Wow, he knows a lot of words". However, by the fifth conversation you are noticing that he just uses the same uncommon words repeatedly. . He is a very outgoing and intelligent man with some good-natured heart (if that even exists). Mr. Boddy ruined his family fortune.
Mr. Jacob Green ~ Male, 20-50’s, Vocal Range: Baritone/Tenor
A rude former business partner of Mr. Boddy. Think a slime, door-to-door or used car salesman. He is a smooth talker and is a former lover of Miss Scarlet. He tends to use lots of hand sanitizer and always has tissues. Peeks when playing hide and seek. Mr. Green found a calling in “Spirituality”. This means he sets up traveling tents and asks people to give him money, which is for the less fortunate, and that means the money is for him. During his travels, "Reverend" Green met and had certain dealings with Mr. Boddy.
Mrs. Eleanor Peacock ~ Female, 30-50’s, Vocal Range:
Mezzo with belt
A snobby sexy manipulative black widow socialite type, who also happens to be the Chair of Peacock Enterprises. She is constantly making snide remarks and is extremely passive aggressive. She is proper, well educated, and has excellent manners, but is this just a disguise for her past? She is currently married to Mr. Boddy and cheating with Col. Mustard. She is suspected in the murder of five previous husbands.
Colonel Jack Mustard ~ Male, 30-50’s, Vocal Range: Baritone
He is your typical adventurer with a military background who fancies himself a triumphant war colonel. Colonel Mustard continues to practice archery and shooting by going hunting. He is a dashing and handsome man with a proud demeanor. However, do not even think on crossing his path because he will love to challenge you to a duel and he will be very “polite” on asking due to he is not afraid to speak his mind. Colonel Mustard is currently having an affair with Mrs. Peacock. He is implicated in the death of Mr. Boddy's parents and was married to Mr. Boddy's mother after the death of her husband.
Mrs. Diane White ~ Male/Female, 20-50’s, Vocal Range: Wide
Fun-loving chief domestic of Boddy Manor. She has the common characteristics of the classic nosy butler. Think ½ of Mrs. Lovett from Sweeney Todd and the other half Madame Thenardier. Is obsessed with weapons and birds. She owns nothing to her name and takes her domestic duties very seriously. If something is out of place, she had better not know about it. She can be very over the top, but can switch it off and be very proper at the drop of a hat.
Mr. Alfred Body ~ Male, 20-40’s, Vocal Range: Baritone/Tenor
The charismatic host of the game, and willing murder victim. He currently owns Boddy Manor, is also the husband of Mrs. Peacock. He loves to crack a joke. Must be very quick with a witty comeback, be able to ad lib, and keep the audience engaged.
The Detective~ Female, 20-40’s, Vocal Range: Wide
Hard Nosed police type. Takes job very serious. Has a sense of humor that does not always make itself known? Will not be pushed around or manipulated.
ELF Jr. The Musical
Show Dates: December 5-15, 2019
Buddy, a young orphan, mistakenly crawls into Santa's bag of gifts and is transported to the North Pole. The would-be elf is raised, unaware that he is actually a human, until his enormous size and poor toy-making abilities cause him to face the truth. With Santa's permission, Buddy embarks on a journey to New York City to find his birth father and discover his true identity. Faced with the harsh realities that his father is on the naughty list and his half-brother doesn't even believe in Santa, Buddy is determined to win over his new family and help New York remember the true meaning of Christmas.
