WITH JUST TWO WEEKS to go to curtain up on the fifth Murder Mystery Dinner Theatre series, tickets are already being delivered to those wise enough to plan ahead to guarantee a reservation on the evening of their choice.
A Murder Mystery Dinner Theatre not only offers an entertaining whodunit,, but the opportunity for the audience to play a role, because they are in fact part of the play and get to interact with the performers and point the finger at the guilty one.
Bingo Spells Murder by Robert Mattons This year’s performance , dynamically directed by Kendall McKella, who has a background in film and stage productions, centers around an orphanage, Our Lady of Almost Lost Causes facing closure and in debt to the mob, while a rapacious big city developer seeks to take over the property and convert it to apartments for those more upwardly mobile than the kids who grew up there.
While you are figuring out who did the inevitable bloody deed, you get to listen in to the even more blood-stained confession of a mobster, and the surprising revelations of a young woman about to be married. It’s all happening as you sip your wine and dine on some specially selected delectable dishes from the Miramar kitchens.
The play will run for three nights, Monday July 11 to Wednesday July 13 at the Miramar Intercontinental Hotel. Curtain up I at 7.30 pm, so plan to arrive some 15 minutes earlier to get your wine glass filled, take your seat, and meet your fellow diners.
