Cupid Must Die! An Interactive Murder Mystery
Saturday, February 17th, 7:00 PM – 10:00 PM EST
SHOW DESCRIPTION WT Productions is partnering with North Avenue Pub & Grill and Marquee Youth Stage for a murder mystery dinner theater fundraiser event. Cupid Must Die!, written and directed by Debbi Dennison and Carl Zeitler, will be a one-night only performance at North Avenue Pub & Grill in their private dining room on Saturday February 17. A social hour begins at 6 PM and the performance begins at 7 PM. During the social hour, characters will interact with audience members. They may provide details that can be used as clues to help you determine the killer later that evening. Salad and an appetizer will be served just prior to the show beginning. There will be a meal break when the entrée will be served. Once the main course is over, the performance will resume until dessert is served. During this time, predictions of whodunit and why will be collected. The show will conclude with the big reveal. Once over, several prizes will be awarded to those who guess correctly or come up with very creative responses. Cupid Must Die! features Debbi Dennison, Danny Glenn, Betsey Milord, Stephen Pickering, Nikolai Sorokin, Julane Sullivan, and Carl Zeitler. It's Valentine's Day, and Cupid is hosting his annual exclusive party to celebrate love and romance. Not everyone is enchanted with Cupid on this occasion, however. Six quirky individuals--whom Cupid labels as "misfits when it comes to love"--have arrived at the party. These misfits include a self-proclaimed nerd who lives with her parents and is obsessed with baking and the Food Network, an eight-time divorcee who has just come from an event at which he performed as a clown, a successful business woman who has no time for love except for her six cats, a homeless man with a limp, an aspiring puppeteer with a severely flirty hand puppet, and the Grim Reaper himself. These six all have some issues with Cupid. During the course of the evening, someone is going to die. Will Cupid survive? Will love survive? Patrons have three plated entrée choices (served by wait staff): -Vegetarian rigatoni with vodka sauce -- $67 -Roasted chicken with roasted potatoes -- $75 -Pan-seared salmon with roasted potatoes --$75 All meal options include house salad, bruschetta, soft drinks, water, coffee, tea, and a slice of cheesecake. There will be a cash bar available for other beverages during the social hour and meal break. Tickets are $67 for the vegetarian rigatoni, $75 for the roasted chicken, and $75 for the pan-seared salmon per person. Tickets include the meal items, performance, tax, and gratuity. Part of the proceeds will go to Marquee Youth Stage, a local community theater. Please help support the arts. Tickets are ONLY available online and MUST be purchased by February 10 in order to have meal orders, staffing requirements, and seating arrangements ready for the night of the event.
