Interactive comic murder mystery opens Thursday
Students in Ramona High School’s theater productions program offer the community a different type of presentation in their production of “Till Death Do Us Part.”
An audience-interactive comedy murder mystery combining elements of Casablanca, The Maltese Falcon and Agatha Christie, the show opens Thursday, March 11, and continues the next two weekends in Performing Arts Wing of the high school, 1401 Hanson Lane. Curtain is at 7 p.m. and tickets are $7 each. Theater students have coupons for $2 off the general admission.
Described as a well-seasoned production with the charisma and razor-sharp comedic instinct of Ramona High’s Christopher Bowersox, the plot centers on the mysterious murder of Andre Gavreau, owner of the Cafe Noir, just as a boatload of wedding guests arrive to celebrate the wedding of the decade.
Coincidence? Not likely. Motives for murder fly fast and furious as the story unfolds, and bodies begin to pile up despite the efforts of Miss Jane Marple, Inspector Hercule Clurrot and private eye Richard Archer.
The audience directs the action as Archer works to solve the murders and get the girl. The show, set in 1942, is designed to look like a black-and-white movie, complete with set and costumes in grayscale.
In addition to Bowersox, “Till Death” features Madi McNiff, Ariel Garcia, Cody Escoto, Nicole Deseno, Rachel Vaca, Joey DeSimone, Daniel Drake, Marshall Smit and Sara Trivelpiece, along with a large supporting cast.
Shows are on March 11, 12, 13, 18, 19 and 20. Tickets are available at the door.
