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.
