Conway Community Arts Association will hold auditions for its upcoming production, "Deathtrap" by Ira Levin at 4 p.m. Dec. 12 and at 7 p.m. Dec. 13 at the Faulkner County Library, 1900 Tyler St.

The cast calls for two men, aged 30-60, one man, aged 20-35, and two women, aged 30-60. The play is under the direction of Misty Allen.

Auditions will consist of cold readings from the play. Those interested in auditioning do not need to prepare a monologue. Everyone is encouraged to audition regardless of previous experience. 

"Deathtrap" is a comic thriller which finds Sidney, a successful Broadway playwright going through a dry spell. He then makes the decision to steal the work of his student and calling it his own. In the meantime, the suspense mounts as the plot begins to twist and turn with devilish cleverness and an abundance of thrills and laughs. 

"Deathtrap" is the longest running thriller ever to run on Broadway. The 1982 film version featured Michael Caine, Christopher Reeve and Dyan Cannon. The play does have mature themes.

The play will also be presented in February in McCastlain Hall on the University of Central Arkansas campus.
