The cast for the upcoming Community Theatre murder mystery is working very hard these weeks preparing for an audience participation event. The core committee is also working on publicity, costumes, decorating and will soon be selling tickets. The production is scheduled for Sunday, July 7 and Monday, July 8 at the Eagles Orchid Inn. Appetizers begin at 6 p.m. with seating encouraged by 6:15 p.m. The performance will begin at 6:30 pm. But will be interrupted for salad, main course entrée and dessert. Beverage is also included.
Tickets go on sale June 26 through July 5, 9 a.m.-1 p.m. The box office will not be open on July 4. You can also call in and reserve your tickets, but will be asked to send a check and pick up your ticket at the door. Seating will not be assigned for this event. So find a group of friends and choose your own table the night of the show.
