Something's Afoot, a musical whodunit, is a satirical poke on Agatha Christie's ingenious murder mysteries. It is sure to be loopy, entertaining fun. We welcome 3 newcomers to our stage: Matt Ottinger, Ty Schalter and Anthony Mandalari. We would like to welcome back these outstanding local performers: Jane Shipley Zussman as "Miss Tweed", Dan Templin, Kelly Sandula-Gruner, Carin McEvoy, Ben Holzhausen, Colleen Bethea and John Roche.
The story takes place at Lord Dudley Rancour's country estate, located on an island during a raging thunderstorm. Ten strangers are stranded in the old English Mansion as guests disappear one by one, knocked off by an assortment of devilish booby traps. There is murder, mystery, music and comedy as bodies pile up between delightful musical songs. See attached poster for additional information.
Lasagna dinner is on the menu and baklava will be the Sunday dessert.
This season is dedicated to two women who have greatly influenced Lansing community theater: Judie Town and Winifred Olds. Judie's family will be attending Something's Afoot on Friday, October 25th which would have been Judie's 82nd birthday. Winifred's family members will be attending the show on Sunday, October 27th. Her grandson, Dan MacLachlan, will be performing songs during the dessert hour. Due to the high volume of audience members that day, we will be opening the doors to the dining room at 1:15 rather than 1:30. We will be putting out "memory cards" on the tables every night for you to share some of your favorite memories of Judie and Winifred which will be given to their families at the end of the run of the show.
