Murder is on the menu when the Morning Star Methodist Church in conjunction with Ilion Little Theatre presents “Engaged to be Murdered,” an interactive dinner theatre, on Saturday, April 2 at 5 p.m. at the church located at 36 Second St., Ilion. Tickets are $20 and include the performance and dinner. Reservations are required by March 31 by calling the church office at 315-894-4093.
“Engaged to be Murdered” takes place at the party celebrating the upcoming nuptials of society girl Genevieve Raglan to handsome up-and-comer Luke Donovan. Representing Genevieve’s family are her elegant parents, Eliot and Marseille (it’s pronounced mar-SAY) Raglan, her glamorous Aunt Theodora, and family matriarch Grandma Nell. Luke is accompanied by his father, cattle rancher Harry Donovan. Also present, although nobody is sure who invited her, is ne’er-do-well Cousin Randy Raglan. All of these people have secrets to hide, and the audience will have a chance to ferret out the clues and try to solve the mystery.
That is from the press release I wrote for the murder mystery Ilion Little Theatre is putting together for the church’s fundraiser. I had meant to copy the whole thing for today’s blog post, but, well, my desk top would not cooperate. I managed to copy the first paragraph and half of the first sentence of the second paragraph. Now I am on my new laptop, trying to remember the rest of it.
I think I have included all the relevant information. My press release went on to toot my own horn as the writer. I figured the papers, if they used the release at all, would cut that part out. Therefore, I shall feel free to cut it out now. Local readers may like to come see the performance. I understand the dinner is roast pork. Yum!
