Mystery Theater: Murder on the Oriental Rug

murdertitleLooking for something totally different to do? The Center Stage Players invite you to come have a great tri-tip dinner while helping solve a murder mystery! The play is called Murder on the Oriental Rug, a whodunit that will keep you in stitches, and suspense, till the last curtain call.

Penned by Tony Schwartz and Marylou Ambrose, and directed by Christal Wheeler, the show features a play within a play.

The official description reads like this; “When half of the cast of Murder on the Oriental Rug bails out, the remaining performers are stuck playing all the roles.”

During the first act of the murder mystery you’ll meet a Shakespearean actor with a drinking problem, a washed-up former child star, a bimbo with a short memory and a hapless costumer who finds herself onstage – playing a man.

“Before the evening’s over,” explains Wheeler, “someone else will be ruthlessly murdered, and it’s up to the audience to solve the crime.”

Prizes will be awarded to the first people who correctly guess the murder and motive.

Doors open at 6:00p.m., and audience members will get a chance to mingle with the cast as they drop hints about themselves and the show and give you a chance to ask them questions.

Dinner is at 6:30 and you can enjoy a delicious tri-tip dinner complete with dessert, while the cast keeps a low profile. The main show begins after dinner, at around 7:00.

The show is rated PG13 for language and suggestive situations.

The performances will be held on August 14th, 15th and 16th at the Susanville Elks Lodge. Tickets for the dinner and show are $30 or you can purchase a table for eight people for $200, a savings of $40. Tickets are available at Margie’s Book Nook on Main Street and the Lassen County Chamber of Commerce on North Weatherlow.
