Phyliss Garcia is calling for actors to perform in the upcoming production of “Murder, You Must Be Kidding.”

Auditions run 5:30 p.m. until 7:30 p.m. Thursday in the Coastal Bend College auditorium.

Garcia said that only adults are needed for this production, which runs April 26-28.

Garcia described this play as almost a farce and a murder mystery.

The play, written by Pat Cook, tells the story of Director Mickey Hockstedder, who can barely stand the outrageous acting styles of his actresses — and that includes his wife, Clarise.

Imagine his surprise when a complete stranger named Lionel appears, claiming that his lead actor Daryl has been murdered.

Even after the police arrive, no one believes Lionel, especially since Daryl is known for shenanigans of this sort. Snappy wisecracks turn to frightening accusations as Snooky, Barbara, Margo and Lucille continue to rehearse — and the murder-mystery they’re rehearsing starts to look amazing like real life.

Who is this stranger? What is reality? What is rehearsed? And who forgot the bean dip?
