POIROT – male, mid 50's - Early 60's. A famous Belgian detective. A "Big" personality. Authoritative, witty, charismatic and slightly pompous. Driven to find the answers, good or bad, with a strong moral sense. Very aware of his ability and his well deserved reputation.

BOUC – male, 30’s to 50’s, ANY ETHNICITY. A Belgian man of good humor. Playful, proud, generous. A predilection for grandeur. A whirlwind of energy. Must be an excellent comedian.

MRS. HUBBARD – female, late 40’s to 60’s, ANY ETHNICITY. An outspoken and flamboyant American from the Midwest. Jovial, obnoxious, domineering, deliciously nosy and brash. Unapologetic. Must be an excellent comedienne.

PRINCESS DRAGOMIROFF – female, 60’s to 70’s, ANY ETHNICITY. A Russian dowager. Very formal, a sweeping, impressive presence. Imperial, impatient.

COUNTESS ANDRENYI - female, 20’s to 30’s, ANY ETHNICITY. Brilliantly beautiful, like something out of a fairytale. Impeccably put together, with a warmth that wins over everyone she meets. Her delicacy belies a steely edge – she is no wilting flower. Hungarian accent.

RATCHETT/COL. ARBUTHNOT – male, mid 30’s to early 50’s, ANY ETHNICITY. 1 actor will play 2 roles. SAMUEL RATCHETT: Middle-aged American businessman, evil at heart and frightening, brusque, unforgiving, stern demeanor. Pushy, domineering. / COLONEL ARBUTHNOT: Scotsman, also middle aged, handsome, very matter of fact, occasionally tender. Must have great comic timing.

MICHEL/MARCEL – male, mid 30’s to early 60’s, ANY ETHNICITY. 1 actor will play 2 roles. MICHEL: A good-looking Frenchman, about 40, a quiet, almost grave sense of humor. Unfailingly polite. / MARCEL: A Turkish waiter, snooty, smooth. Must have great comic timing.

MARY DEBENHAM – female, 30’s, ANY ETHNICITY. An English beauty. A governess, capable yet romantic. A sadness around her eyes and a hardness about her person.

GRETA OHLSSON – female, mid 20’s to 60’s. Inherently odd, and very devout Swedish woman. A frightened, sheeplike quality. Must be an excellent comedienne with an impeccable Swedish accent.

MACQUEEN- male, early to mid 30's. Tightly wound, edgy and nervous. He seems to always be on the verge of falling apart or coming unwound.

EPA rules in effect. In person sign-up begins at 9:00AM on 9/7/18.
