"The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time" Auditions are Tuesday and Wednesday, May 7 & 8

Auditions for Christopher, the main character in "The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time," will be at 7 p.m. on Wednesday and Thursday, May 7 and 8 in the Warehouse Theatre at 3 Central Avenue in Wellsboro.

"I am looking for an actor who can play a 15-year-old," said Director Thomaa Putnam. "The character is on the autistic spectrum, is a math genius and on stage for almost the entire play. I am casting the role now, to give the actor more time to learn his lines."

The character is described as follows: "15-year-old Christopher has an extraordinary brain: He is exceptional at mathematics but ill-equipped to interpret everyday life. He has never ventured alone beyond the end of the road; he detests being touched, and he distrusts strangers. Now, it is seven minutes after midnight, and Christopher stands beside his neighbor's dead dog, Wellington who has been speared with a garden fork. Finding himself under suspicion, Christopher is determined to solve the mystery of who murdered Wellington and he carefully records each fact of the crime. But his detective work, forbidden by his father, takes him on a thrilling journey that upturns his world."

Any actor interested in auditioning for the role of Christopher who cannot attend on May 7 or 8 is asked to contact Putnam by calling 570-724-2079 or emailing

Auditions for other characters in the play will be held at a later date. They include: Siobahan, Ed, Judy, Voice One (Mrs. Shears and Others), Voice Two (Roger Shears and others); Voice Three (policeman and others); Voice Four (Rev. Peters and others); Voice Five (No, 40 and others); and Voice Six (Mrs. Alexander and others).

Co-sponsoring this production are Dr. Richard and Kate Black and Partners In Progress.

Performances will be at 7:30 p.m. on Fridays and Saturdays, Nov. 1 and 2 and Nov. 7 and 8 and at 2:30 p.m. on Sunday, Nov. 3 in the Coolidge Theatre at the Deane Center for the Performing Arts at 104 Main Street in Wellsboro.
