The Potomac Playmakers Have announced auditions for the final show of their
historic 90th Anniversary Season, Milan Stitt's "The Runner Stumbles," as
well as the interactive murder mystery, “Fishin’ For Trouble!” In "The Runner Stumbles,"
a young nun has died under mysterious circumstances in a remote
parish in northern Michigan, and her superior, Father Rivard, has been
charged with her murder. The action alternates between interrogations,
testimony and scenes from the past which reveal that Father Rivard, who had
been banished to the small, up-country parish, fell in love with Sister Rita;
and when circumstances forced her to move into the rectory with him, his
anguish became unbearable. Their relationship, inevitably, spelt tragedy, but
not until the explosive and surprising climax of the play is the full extent
of their sacrifice made clear and the identity of the murderer revealed. The
cast consists of five male and 4 female roles of varying ages.
Produced by special permission from Dramatists Play Service, Inc. and
Directed by Barry Harbaugh, Auditions for "The Runner Stumbles" will be held
on March 6, and 7 at The Women's Club, located at 31 S.
Prospect Street, Hagerstown. Auditions will start promptly at
7 pm and will last until approximately 9. Auditions will consist of
cold readings from the script. Show dates for "The Runner Stumbles" are May
12-14, 2017, with additional possible performances the following weekend.

“Fishing For Trouble” is an interactive murder mystery set at a gala
fundraiser.  Directed by Jeff Marcum, there are two performances scheduled
for April 1 and 8, with additional performances possible.
The show calls for three men and five ladies of varying ages, all with a
sense of comic timing and the ability to interact directly with the audience.
