Auditions for the musical melodrama “Dastardly Deeds at Harmony House” will be held on Tuesday, May 31at 6 pm at Amelia Musical Playhouse.
Thank you to Amelia Island Escape Rooms for sponsoring the show!
This is the story of a villain trying to hoodwink a slew of investors with a bogus tin mine in the canyons above Orange County, Ca. It is also the story of the Irish judge that made San Juan Capistrano his home and the world famous actress that many of those canyons were renamed to honor…a story of dreamers and schemers, heroes and villains.
