I may have mentioned our upcoming murder mystery to benefit the Herkimer County Historical Society. Well, I am hard at work on it and keep coming up with more ideas. The title is Fabulous and Fatal, and the characters are all drag queens. Rehearsals will begin soon, and I will share more about the characters and plot (but I will NOT give away all the secrets!). For today, I took a couple of pictures of props I intend to use.
I received this hand painted glass as a gift from the cast of Leading Ladies, which I directed at Ilion Little Theatre in 2016. I thought it would be an excellent thing to use. Or do I mean a fabulous thing?
Another clue will be a cash box. At first I had thoughts of purchasing an actual cash box and dressing it up with rhinestones and a hot glue gun. Then I remembered I have a suitable box already, a gift of the same cast.
Of course, this box is wood, not metal as I had originally envisioned. But it is so beautiful, how can I resist using it? My only regret is that now I do not have occasion to use my hot glue gun. Maybe I can come up with a few more props. Hmm….
Fabulous and Fatal will be presented Friday, October 18th, at 5:30 p.m, at the Travel Lodge in Little Falls, NY. Tickets are $30. For tickets or more information, contact the historical society at 315-866-6413.
