FSHS Thespian Murder Mystery Dinner Theatre, Beaux Arts Center at 7pm
FSHS Thespians to Perform Murder Mystery Dinner Theatre
“Who dunnit?” is the question to answer in Fort Scott High School Thespian’s production of “Wedding Song” at7 p.m. on April 7 and 8 at Beaux Arts Centre, in Fort Scott.
FSHS Thespians are excited to undertake the unique endeavor of a murder mystery dinner theatre.
“Our auditorium is currently under construction, so we have been looking for unique ways to produce theatre beyond the walls of our school,” said Thespian Director Angie Bin. “The Beaux Arts Centre offered us the opportunity to try a new kind of theatre that students are having so much fun with and will involve lots of audience interaction.”
Author David Moberg says, "The action begins with Sonny (senior Briant Martin) and Jenna (sophomore Daniela Belcuore) enthusiastically welcoming the guests (the audience) to their wedding. One by one Sonny’s wealthy family and friends arrive… and not one has ever seen or met Jenna before… particularly Sonny’s domineering mother (freshman Kaitlyn Hanks)! Mistaken identities, secret plans, unexpected surprises abound as the characters plot and pry to keep Sonny from “marrying away” the family fortune! And of course… this IS a murder mystery… someone has to die! And the audience HAS to help the clueless detective (senior Hunter Parker) find the murderer!"
Seating is limited for each production, so audience members are encouraged to buy tickets soon. Adults are $19.50 and children 12 and under are $14.50. Tickets must be purchased by April 2 and are available at Beaux Arts Centre, 102 S. National, and Country Cupboard, 12 N. Main, in Fort Scott. Admission includes dinner by Chef Tim Harloff featuring Pasta Baronesa (pasta with a butter/cream based sauce with chicken, prosciutto, veggies, and cheese) and Crazy Caprese Salad (fresh mozzarella pearls, grape tomatoes, fresh basil, red onion, and a balsamic glaze drizzle). There is a vegetarian pasta alternative too. Wedding desserts are provided by local baker Bree Spurgeon.
