Players plan murder mystery within a murder mystery
“The Murder Mystery at the Murdery Mystery” is the next play to be performed by the Phillips County Players Jan. 17-19.
A murder mystery that really teases the brain, the show has a play-within-a-play plot that challenges both the mind and the metaphysical.
Scheduled at a new venue, the play will be performed at the SunSet View Community Center, with spectators using the Bowman Street entrance.
Friday, Jan. 17, PCP will present the play only at 7 p.m. Saturday, Jan. 18, a dinner will be catered by Blisties at 6 p.m., followed by the play at 7:30. The 2 p.m. matinee on Sunday, Jan. 19, will include dessert.
Tickets should be purchased in advance from cast members or by calling 970-520-7040. This is especially important for the Saturday dinner theater for food prep purposes. Dinner entrees include shepherd’s pie and roasted chicken.
“The Murder Mystery at the Murder Mystery” is written by Brian D. Taylor and is produced by special arrangement with Pioneer Drama Service, Inc., of Englewood.
In the production, 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.
