HALLOWELL — Gaslight Theater has scheduled auditions for the second production of the season, “The Bat” by Mary Robert Rinehart and Avery Hopwood. Auditions will be held at Hallowell City Hall at 2 p.m. Sunday, March 30, in council chambers downstairs; and at 6:30 p.m. Tuesday, April 1, in the auditorium upstairs.

The plot follows resourceful Cornelia Van Gorder who encounters intrigue and murder at the secluded house she has rented for the summer. Undeterred by the likely presence of a renowned thief and murderer known only as “The Bat,” she instead sets out to match wits with him. A classic “murder at the secluded house on a dark and stormy night” mystery, “The Bat” features creaking doors, hidden rooms and an endless lineup of suspects.

The Bat has roles for seven men and three women. Auditions for “The Bat” will consist of cold readings from the script. The production will be performed June 13-15 and 20-22.
