Old School Theatre And GFWC Spring Station Woman’s Club To Present Murder Mystery Dinner Theatre To Benefit Center Of Hope In Columbia
If you missed last year’s Murder Mystery Dinner Theatre at Old School Theatre, you are in luck. Spring Hill’s community theatre has decided to make it an annual event! Presented by Old School Theatre and GFWC Spring Station Woman’s Club, proceeds from tickets sold will also benefit the Center of Hope (formerly Hope House) which serves the Columbia, TN community as a domestic violence shelter and counseling center for women and children.
In this year’s murder mystery, a cast of nine local actors directed by Summit High School drama teacher Annie Rice, will perform To Have and to Haunt, a play written by local playwrights Wes Driver and Greg Greene. This is a scripted mystery play with moments of audience participation, so it would not be sensible to reveal the full plot (I mean, that’s why it’s called a Who Dunnit right?). However, just in case the audience would like to dress for the occasion, it can be revealed that the play takes place in the 1920’s, and through a series of confused conversations with people who may not really be there, a “talking” chicken, an awkward man dance, and an elf who lives in somebody’s shoe, a very old murder is solved. But not without a fun twist at the end!
Prepare to be taken back in time, entertained, and fed a delicious dinner on June 21, 22, 28 or 29 at 7pm. Dinner and dessert will be provided by MoeBetter BBQ.
