Talk About a Murder A Murder Mystery Dinner Theater
Following up last year’s popular “Death of a Doornail,” the Foltz Community Center Players are back at it with another zany murder mystery written by the same playwright, Lee Mueller. “Talk About A Murder” features a fictitious talk show, “On the Road with Ricky and Nickie Rivers,” that is broadcasting live from the Foltz Center in East Canton. Audience members will be the live studio audience for the talk show.
The story centers on the TV show broadcasting on the road. The D-list guests include the Vegas lounge singing team of Shecky Scagnetti and Edie Buffet; new age guru Celeste Ethereal; home economist Phoebe St. Self; and gossip columnist Polly Pettegolo. All are plugging their own talk shows. The yawn-fest heats up with a few ego and personality clashes. One of the featured guests meets an unfortunate demise. Who would want someone dead while “live” on the air? Or is the question, who wouldn’t? Can this mystery help the ratings? Must the show go on?
The Characters will interact with audience members as they are served a delicious dinner. Audience members will have the opportunity to guess who-dun-it. Some lucky sleuths in the audience will win prizes.
