Auditions: Deadly Dessert Championship

January 16 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Deadly Dessert Championship is an original murder mystery, written by local award-winning playwright and author, Allyssa Hynes. This production is West Hudson Arts & Theater Company’s annual dinner theatre fundraising event.



In Deadly Dessert Championship, a new reality TV baking show is underway and the competition is killer. When a judge is murdered, what’s said off-camera is just as important as what is said on screen. Who would be willing to kill to win?

This lighthearted murder mystery dinner show combines scripted scenes with moments of improv where actors will talk with guests in character.

At auditions, actors will read from sides and participate in improv exercises.
