Currently, the dinner theater company hosts weekly Dallas performances at the historic restaurant, Dallas Fair Park Old Mill Inn
The hiring announcement was published by Murder Mystery Texas on their website, which is provided in the contact information below. The announcement begins by acknowledging that a major benefit for prospective new actors and stage managers interested in working with the company is the opportunity to work with the top-rated Immersion Theatre in Texas. The information goes on to list descriptions of different positions for which the dinner theater company is accepting headshots and acting resumes.
The first position advertised by Murder Mystery Texas is that of the host of the evening’s entertainment. In the host role, an individual is responsible not only for the supervision of cast activities and rehearsals but also for guiding the audience through the murder mystery show. The production company notes that prospective applicants “must be super-organized as well as comfortable with acting as Master of Ceremonies,” and that they are “looking for a friendly, playful, unflappable ‘people person’ with great leadership abilities.”
As the name of the company indicates, each Murder Mystery Texas show involves a crime that needs to be solved. Considering the theme of the shows, the company stresses the importance of the second position for which they are currently accepting applications, that of the Local Police Department Detective. In that lead role, the company notes that they are looking for “edgy comedic-types who enjoy improvising” and that successful candidates “must have a great sense of humor, be believable as a hard-boiled cop, be able to control a crowd and interact with the audience while leading them through a murder investigation…all with witty banter and repartee.” Both male and female candidates are encouraged to apply for the position.
Among the other acting positions advertised by Murder Mystery Texas are various Suspects and Murderers; these roles, the information specifies, are geared toward those with dramatic improvisation skill-sets as opposed to comedic expertise. Femme fatales, leading men, criminals & gangsters and all physical looks of male and female character actors are included in the available positions.
