Dinner at Eight, Dead by Nine

This deliciously clever comedy mystery is written specifically for a dinner theatre setting.  The action takes place around the head table of a banquet room where guests — and of course our audience members — are expecting a dinner theatre show.  But when the guest of honor, Eleanor Van Heusen, falls face first into her plate of spaghetti, the guests are suddenly witnesses to a murder!  Luckily, Inspector Bungles is there to help solve this whodunit.  To say the least, Eleanor wasn’t loved by all.  In fact, all her family members and even the chef have reasons to kill her.  Hilarity ensues as they each reveal their own murder plans, yet all claim innocence.  Come be part of the action with us as we all seek to solve the mystery.

Dinner by Eight, Dead by Nine is presented by arrangement with Pioneer Drama Service.
