CAST LIST BELOW
Join us for an evening of fine dining, cocktails, and murder!!
"Rosemary Saint-John is a loud, annoying hypochondriac convinced she is allergic to water. Celebrating her birthday at a restaurant with her four kooky sisters–a hippie, a valley girl, a trucker and a banker–Rosemary makes enemies with everyone around her. When she disappears and is presumed murdered, the only objective witnesses in the restaurant are the audience members, who must cast their vote. Was it one of Rosemary’s sisters? The self-taught detective? The passionate French chef? The polite and proper maître d’? The sarcastic waiter? No one is above suspicion in this delightful dinner theatre murder mystery."
Directed by: Kate Murphy
Produced by: Candace Chapman & Kathy Peavyhouse

NB: For actors cast as Melanie, Valerie and Volleny, your character description has experienced a change because of the era in which the show is taking place. Melanie is now a Suffragette, Valerie fits the stereotype of a “dumb blonde”, and Volleny is a female bootlegger.
