Auditions For 2nd
Golden Girls

NEW JERSEY – The Theater League of Clifton will hold auditions for its dinner/theater production of “The Golden Girls Holiday Mystery” on Monday, July 22 and Wednesday, July 24, 7-9 p.m. at Mario’s Restaurant, located at 710 Van Houten Ave., Clifton.

The show is seeking six performers to play parody versions of characters from the hit TV sitcom “The Golden Girls” (Dorothy, Blanche, Sophia, and Rose), along with Arthur Walter, the smooth-talking, blackmailing cad, and Lieutenant Caramba, a Colombo-esque detective.

The casting call is open to all genders, ethnicities, abilities and ages. Performances are slated for Sept. 13, 14, 15, 20, 21, 22, 27, and 28 at Mario’s Restaurant. Friday and Saturday shows begin at 8 p.m., with Sunday matinees starting at 4 p.m.

Last February the Theater League of Clifton produced and staged a separate production of Golden Girls dinner/theater comedy. All of those performances were sold out and this new production is being offered to local audiences in response to popular demand.
