Show Information:

At this murder-mystery weekend, guests have a chance to win a "priceless treasure" if they can solve a fake murder. But the guests face a major turn of events when, instead of solving a fake murder, they are murdered one by one with a series of bizarre weapons including a half-eaten pomegranate, a barrage of acorns, a spatula, a charade rulebook, and a stethoscope. Will anyone survive to solve the mystery?

Popularized from our Saturday Morning One Act Play series, this show will serve as our 5th annual Spring Break Intensive production. Performances will take place on the main stage set of Noises Off.
