If you love going out, enjoying a three-course dinner, having a good laugh, and engaging new friends in good conversation, you’ll love CAST Players latest dinner theater offering: Murderous Crossing. A literal whodunit served with a side of humor and topped off with musical numbers, where the audience is part of the action.
The plot: It is 1923 and audience members are passengers on board the HMS Victoria as it crosses the English Channel. The famous Inspector Clurrot has tracked down a homicidal mastermind hiding out on board. Meanwhile, the ship is the venue for the marriage of the Contessa Follette and John D. Rothchild –a union conceived and encouraged through financial need and murderous greed. But not all is as it seems. The English Channel is not the only thing being crossed this night. A hilarious cast of characters keeps everyone guessing until the very end.
All of the action takes place on the floor, actors moving through the audience and interacting as they go. Although participation is not required, audience members are encouraged to stand in for the best man, a bridesmaid, mother of the groom and father of the bride in this Agatha Christie style spoof. Everyone gets a chance to figure out who the murderer really is.
Murderous Crossing plays April 29, May 5 and 6, at 7:00 pm and matinees are on April 30 and May 7 at 4:00 pm at the Beaumont Womens Community Center located at 306 E. Sixth St. Admission for dinner and the show are $37 pp. Reservations are required and can be made by calling (951) 315-4253 or on the website www.castplayers.org. Due to the dinner service, walk-ins will not be accommodated.
