Event Details

Show A: The Redhead Speakeasy Murder Mystery

The Redhead Speakeasy ain’t no dive
So if you wanta jump the jive,
the mystery you will only beat
if you can figure out this heat…

in ’26 Strasburg’s whistle sung
To help sad birdies move along;
But if you don’t dig all that jazz
The clue you just might never have!

Did you know the 1920’s could be murder?
The guests are the suspects!
Wear your glad rags you dirty bums!
Come prepared for anything, but remember, this is a classy juice joint!
And for this murder mystery, ya gotta use yer noggin’ if you want to figure out who dun it?


Show B: Grandma Got Run Over By A Reindeer, a mystery ‘whodunit?’

Grandma got knocked over and almost trampled to death by some person in a red suit!
She’s OK, but she is one angry senior citizen!
Who could have done the dastardly deed?
Unfortunately, Grandma is using her “medication” heavily for the pain and is of no help with anything! Sigh!

Why do a mystery based on this goofy song? Why NOT! Act 1 Production’s bizarre crew brings Maddie Yuengel’s newest show to a fun PRE Christmasy life.

Lots of songs sung for the PRE Christmas season. Clues of paws, claus and more. Everyone in the family is suspect, including GRANDPA!

Puns galore in this fun, different attempted murder investigation!


Show C: The Monster Mashed, the Musical?

The Monster has been mashed!
Keeled by his own keel!
Hoist by his own petard!
Kicked by his own bucket!

Alright Enough Already.

One of our five disturbed suspects is guilty.
Dr. Dementia, Sister Ghoul, Drackie (with a lisp), Elvira and Thing.

Come dressed in your Ghoulish/Halloweenish best to win a chance at a door prize.

But remember, we are all a little disturbed!
