Play On! By Rick Abbot

One plucky community theatre is about to produce a show called Murder Most Foul, a new “murder mystery play” with the same title as an Agatha Christie novel but with no relation whatsoever. The director/theatre manager, Gerry, thought producing the play was a good idea since the inexperienced playwright has agreed to let the company perform the show for no charge. Gerry, however, had no idea what disasters awaited her: the show is hilariously amateur, the “murder mystery” plot doesn’t really have a murder, and to top it off the playwright keeps changing the story and script only two days from its premiere! It doesn’t help that the cast is disgruntled, and the playwright accidentally deletes the entire sound effect board. All of the disasters come to fruition in Act III when the company performs the actual show with hilarious mishaps as every turn. Play On! is a hilarious love letter to community theatre.

I really enjoy watching plays, although I don't go to many at all.  Sounds like there are some fun ones for you to attend.

Community theater is an asset to communities that have them.  I'm glad Kentlands does!

Hope they find the right fit for this play. And, hope the snow eases up a bit for you. Wish I could bring a shovel over and help you clear the walks and driveway. D
