I have murder on my mind lately because our Murder Mystery Dinner is just around the corner. One of the greatest joys in my youth was playing Clue with my sister and brothers. Of course, my big brother was always cheating, so the odds of my winning were pretty slim. With that in mind, I would always guess Colonel Mustard in the library.

Our Murder Mystery, Vanity Snare, will give everyone a chance to solve the crime with no cheating big brothers. In fact, you will have the opportunity to discuss the events with your dining partners.

We have an incredible cast of local folks who have donated hours to bring this production to you. I’d like to take this opportunity to introduce them to you.

Corella De Vil is played by Diane Peters, who also directed the play. Corella is Cruella’s twin sister. She’s rich and she’s dead.

Salamender McGrew is played by Steve Fraker. He is a fashion designer and Corella’s husband.

Daisy Kooks, is played by Teresa Summers. She is Corella’s assistant and a southern charmer.

Bella Donna is played by Kaitlyn Seis. She is a new-age model.

Mad Furry is played by Rob McKinney. He is a techie, stoner and protester.

Fancy Mew (Nancy Drew) is played by Sherry Nash. She’s a detective with keen eyes who loves napping.
