Murder Mystery Dinner - food and entertainment with a Cash Bar

By: Brian D. Taylor

Ready to tackle a murder mystery that really teases the brain?  With a fun play-within-a-play plot that challenges both the mind and the metaphysical, this comic mystery is certain to have your audiences coming back for more. 

The players at The Murder Mystery Playhouse are rehearsing a new show, Putting a Little English on It.  It’s a not-so-good attempt at a British murder mystery, complete with cheesy dramatic music and British accents.  As expected at the final dress rehearsal, the lights go out and a character dies onstage — only this murder wasn’t in the script!  The authorities are quickly called, and soon the company finds themselves replaying the death scene.  When yet another person dies at the end of the same scene, the cast finds themselves replaying the same scene over and over for other investigators, a theatre critic, and even the playwright himself!  But every time they get to the end of the scene, someone else ends up with a fire poker in the chest.  The actors are left scratching their heads at the strange circumstances and also worried that they could be next.  It all culminates in a wild surprise ending in which the actors must work together to defeat the murderer before he murders them all.

Cotton Patch Gospel

Book by Tom Key and Russell Treyz

 Music and lyrics by Harry Chapin

This "Greatest Story Ever Retold" is based on the book The Cotton Patch Version of Matthew and John by Clarence Jordan in which the Gospel is presented in a setting of rural Georgia with a classic American roots music score, the final and perhaps best work of Harry Chapin. As this Gospel begins, they sing that "Somethin's Brewin' in Gainesville." Herod is governor of Georgia when Jesus is born of the Virgin Mary from Gainesville. Jesus grows, and so do his followers, preaching a radical message of love. He is ultimately lynched by the Ku Klux Klan in collusion with then Governor Pilate and the Believe in the Bible Society, only to rise from the dead. From a mountaintop in Alabama, Jesus empowers his followers on to, "Go out and welcome all people into my Father's family."​
