Winner of the 2012 Mystery Writers of America Edgar Allen Poe  Award for Best Play this is sure be another crowd pleaser.  Ken Ludwig’s  ability to combine believable characters in hilarious circumstances  delivers another script full of mishaps and mis-adventures. 

It is December 1936,  and Broadway star William Gillette, admired the world over for his  leading role in the play Sherlock Holmes, has invited his fellow cast  members to his Connecticut castle for a weekend of revelry. But when one  of the guests is stabbed to death, the festivities in this isolated  house of tricks and mirrors quickly turn dangerous. It is then up to  Gillette himself, as he assumes the persona of his beloved Holmes, to  track down the killer before the next victim appears. The danger and  hilarity are non-stop in this glittering whodunit set during the Christmas holidays.

Director Neal Ruggeberg is looking for a cast of 5 women ages 25-35 (1), 35-50 (3) and 65+ (1) along with 3 men  ages 25-35 (1) and 35-50 (2).

A romantic comedy focusing on a pair of newlyweds, Corie and Paul, as they begin married life in a tiny, 5th-floor walkup apartment in a Manhattan brownstone. Paul is a strait-laced attorney; Corie has a far more spontaneous, free spirit. As the young couple contend with a lack of heat, a skylight that leaks snow, several long flights of stairs, oddball neighbor and Corie’s well-meaning mother, they must also reconcile their own personal differences in how they approach life’s challenges. 

Director Vicki Dickey is looking for a cast of 4 males and 2 females.

Performance dates are May 10, 11, 12 and 17, 18, 19 (2019).



November 26 and 27, 2018

The  new year is just a few weeks away, which mean at Stone’s Throw Dinner  Theatre it’s time for us to prepare for our New Year’s Eve Audience  Participation Murder Mystery. 

Auditions for our show, Win, Lose, or DIE! by Eileen Moushey, will be held at the theatre on Monday, November 26 and Tuesday, November 27 at 6:30 pm.  There will be a single performance on, of course, December 31

Win, Lose, or DIE!  is funny, campy show-within-a-show – a game show with murder in the  bonus round!  The play centers around the popular (and fictional) game  show, Lyrical Pursuit, where knowledge of lyrics could  lead to fame and fortune, and its nationwide tour has brought it to  Carthage!  The charismatic show host invites audience members to  challenge the current Lyric King to a battle of memory and melody.  But  before the show is over, someone winds up dead.  Who done it?  Was it  the glamorous assistant?  Or the disgruntled ex-champ? Or is there  something about the super-sweet sponsor that’s oddly sinister?  The  audience will investigate, following clues left throughout the theatre,  and right before midnight, the culprit will be unmasked!

Directed  by Doug Dickey, the cast calls for three men (character ages ranging  from 30 to 80) and four females (20 – 80).  If necessary, the gender of a  couple of can be changed.  The nature of audience participation  requires that actors are good at improvisation.  If you would like a  copy of a preview script, contact the theatre at 417-358-4300.
