I thought I would use today’s post to plug He Laughed Himself to Death, the murder mystery dinner theatre Ilion Little Theatre is presenting at Morning Star Methodist Church in Ilion April 1. For one reason, deadline for reservations is Thursday, and local readers may like to go. Of course I do not want to say too much about the plot, because I don’t want to spoil anything. Perhaps it would jazz things up if I included a couple of pictures of the props Kim and I purchased last Saturday.
I said in Saturday’s post that I was disappointed in the quality of the fake poo, but it isn’t so bad once you get it out of the package. I had some better fake poo that I got at a Mom and Pop operation called The Party Store in Potsdam, NY, roughly a hundred years ago. And that makes me an authentic old person, carping about how things used to be so much better in the old days. Well, that’s a whole other blog post. Let’s get back to the silly pictures.
I guess my insect picture has kind of a shadow, but I don’t have time to set up a better shot. The cockroach has wheels to you can make it zip across the floor or table. Tee hee. Who wouldn’t love a cockroach on wheels?
I put the ice cubes with flies in a wine glass with water, then added the bottle of wine to make the picture more interesting. Domhnall vineyards is located in Herkimer, NY. I love their Baco Noir.
Steven came home while I was taking the ice cubes out of the package. He was startled by the bugs on the table and the poo on the floor. Tee hee. I gathered up my jokey props and took them to rehearsal, where my fellow cast-members were equally amused.
He Laughed Himself to Death will be presented at Morning Star Methodist Church, 36 Second St., Ilion, NY, Saturday, April 1 at 5 p.m. A roast pork dinner will be served. Tickets are $20. Reservations are required by Thursday, March 30 by calling the church office at 315-894-4520.
