Dinner at 8, Dead by 9

FREE ALL AGES SHOW

Presented by Adrian Community Theater
and  Electric City Downtown / Butler Main Street

Written by Michael Druce
Directed by Scott Isabell and Matthew Vandenburg
Concessions by Two Guys G'rilla Food Truck

This deliciously clever comedy mystery is written with the whole family in mind! The action takes place around the head table of a banquet room where guests are expecting a dinner theater show. But when the guest of honor, Eleanor Van Heusen, falls face first into her plate of pasta, the guests are suddenly witnesses to a murder! Luckily, Inspector Bungler 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.
