Mystery and Comedy the Act Out Mystery Theater presents “Character Assassin.” The dinner theater troupe fills the room at the Reef with suspense and laughs each Saturday night through November 9.
The four part show begins with introductions by murder mystery writer, Dame Hagatha who reads her murder mystery to the dinner guests only to find that the murder story has turned into a real murder. The real and fictional murders intertwine in unexpected and hilarious ways.
In her fictional work, Dame Hagatha tells the story of Benton Destruction. Benton Destruction’s wife Eva Destruction provides introductions, explanations and comic relief through the otherwise tragic murder story.
The Act Out Mystery Theater troupe brings delightfully talented actors together to create the mystery theater. Each actor plays two characters, with the secondary character often providing depth to the primary character.
The cast includes Sherry Denton-Noonan, Christopher Geer, Jillian Yim, Lorrie Freilich, Paul Vander Roest, Randall Goddard, Samantha O’Mara-Mezzano and Timothy Patrick McGraw. In addition to the real actors, dining guests are offered small parts that bring the audience into the show for some super mystery hints and hilarious moments.
