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.
