Auditions open for fall performances
Get a CLUE, Cape actors and try out for HJT's newest musical.

Was it Mrs. Peacock in the conservatory with the knife? Colonel Mustard in the billiards room with the rope?  If you like murder and musicals and you can act and sing, auditions for CLUE, the Musical will be held at the Harwich Junior Theatre this coming Saturday and Sunday.
