Help Clarkston Village Players’ Youth Theatre crack the case in Tim Kelly’s “Murder at Crooked House,” July 21-22 at 7:30 p.m.; July 23 at 2 p.m.; and July 27-29 at 7:30 p.m.
In this spoofy, musical murder whodunit, Hercules Porridge just might solve the mystery. Or he might not. Overcoming his ineptness, he tries to investigate the goings on at Crooked House, a delapidated boarding house with a funny farm of tenants.
Adding murder to the mystery, the campy musical is full of eccentric characters, including mystery writer Anguish Crispie, a curious young man in safari attire, a strange actress, a crackpot colonel, and a directionally-challenged butler.
“This cast is amazing – so proud of all their hard work, and a huge thank you goes out for all the hard work and creative genius of our incredible director and choreographer Carmen Padilla and assistant director Sean Mueller,” said Emily J. Dowd, Clarkston Village Players.
Tickets are $10. Reserve your tickets at 248-425-5842 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
