Shall we blame this on menopausal brain fog, seasonal allergies, or, well, me? The fact is, after Monstrous Monday and Tired Tuesday, today is Wuss-out Wednesday. But perhaps I can give another plug to A Trivial Murder, the interactive dinner theatre to benefit Herkimer County Historical Society. I just got back from another rehearsal. I need to learn my lines.
The setting is a special taping of “Who Knows Herkimer History?” that popular game show, with our new host, Gary “Herk” Henderson. The previous host, Jack German, died under mysterious circumstances, but let us not allow such gloomy thoughts to intrude. Tonight is also exciting, because of our returning champion, Ned Frances, who has been winning for an unprecedentedly long time. Will someone cut off his winning streak? Will our glamorous Prize Girl, Scarlett Scarsdale, be awarding cash and prizes to a new champion? According to producer Evelyn Moore, our resident historian, Dr. D. Devonshire, has promised some tough questions. All the excitement will be recorded by Bernie Woods, writer for Game Show Gambit magazine. Things will be started soon by our announcer, Rod Toddman.
How does that sound for program notes? I think I’ll email it to the historical society and see what they think. In the meantime, local readers might like to make reservations for the show: Saturday, Nov. 3, 2018, 6 to 8 p.m. at Ilion Moose Lodge, 302 Barringer Rd., Ilion, NY, doors open at 5 p.m. $25 per person for turkey dinner and the show. For reservations, contact the society at 315-866-6413. For more information, consult the Facebook event.
