Project Theatre presents "Murder Me Always"

Project: Theatre will be presenting "Murder Me Always" by Lee Mueller  November 13 at 7pm and 14th at 2 and 7pm. 

Mount Holyoake college is located in South Hadley Massachusetts. Project Theatre is a student-run organization dedicated to theater of all kinds, showing everything from Shakespeare to student-written plays. 

"Murder Me Always" - plot: During a very bad performance of "Murder Me Always" , an actual murder takes place off stage. The Director is shot. The "fake" play comes to a screeching halt and a "real" murder mystery begins. It seems a "Murder Mystery Murderer" is on the loose and has struck again. Luckily, Detective Joe Mamet, a Raymond Chandler Pulp type gumshoe has staked out the audience and rises to the occasion to begin an investigation. Could it be that one of these very bad actors is really a very bad person? Will this "real" murder mystery be any better than the fake one? Is art imitating life? Is the play really the thing?

The second part will be set in a neighboring nightclub and will feature a variety of songs written in the style of 1940s jazz. The production’s goal is to provide students with an opportunity to participate in the theatrical arts in several ways, while exposing them to musical theatre repertoire that they may not otherwise encounter.

 Several students will be acting in the murder mystery, while others will be singing and dancing in the second half of the show. Students will also be assisting with lighting and sound, helping backstage or playing in the pit band.

 The Nov. 7 performance will include a pre-show dinner of either chicken piccata or vegetable lasagna. Tickets for this performance are $20 each or $140 for a table of eight. Tickets for this show must be reserved in advance. People attending this show are encouraged to wear 1940s attire to the “Germantown Jazz Club.” The Nov. 8 performance will not include a dinner, and tickets will be sold at the door for $10 for adults and $5 for students and seniors.

"An Audition For A Murder" at Seeger Drama Club

"An Audition For A Murder" by Lee Mueller will be presented by Seeger Drama Club November 6th 7th and 8th at 7:00 PM  at the Seeger Fine Arts Center in West Lebanon Indiana.

"An Audition For A Murder" by Lee Mueller
Seeger Drama Club rehearses "An
Audition For A Murder"
The Plot: A Theatre group is holding auditions for a Murder Mystery called "Death of A Disco Dancer". All of the typical actors show up to audition. There is Mia Monahan - the militant method actress, Amber Frost- the ditzy Drama queen, Chad - the energetic actor who never seems to get a part in anything, Alan- the accomplished Theatre Major who works at a fast food place in the mean time. Troy May - the ego-centric actor who always gets a role and his gorgeous assistant Tantanya who holds his imported bottled water and carries his Portfolio. And last but not least, Mrs. Needleman and her precious daughter Julie , fresh from the Little Miss Pumpkin Pageant finals.
The auditions get underway without too many problems, well a few.. Well, all right, you see, the thing is.. the Director Vivian Vinderlou and assistant director Reed Moore have a bit of the problem with "script". The problem is they don't have enough copies for everyone. And the bigger problem is they don't actually have a finished script. 
Jim Culter- the playwright arrives in the nick of time with a few more copies and a few more finished pages just as one of the actors mysteriously dies. As luck would have it, Jim has brought Inspector Bonnie Brauvera along to the auditions to serve as Technical advisor for the play. Perhaps the investigation into this "mysterious death" will inspire the playwright and help him finish the play. After all, there is a read-through on Monday.

"Remains To Be Seen" Murder Mystery Play Fundraiser for SOTX

In a partnership with Port Arthur Little Theatre,  the murder mystery comedy play "Remains To Be Seen" by lee Mueller will be presented as a fundraiser for SOTX (Special Olympics Texas).

The performance will take place November 7th 2015 from 6pm to 9pm at Edison Plaza, 350 Pine Street in Beaumont Texas. 

Remains To Be Seen - a murder mystery comedy play

The Plot: A dead body is found in a steamer trunk on the back of a U-Move-It rental truck. Officers Goodman and Badman discover that it’s not as easy as tracking down the last person who rented the truck. It seems the “trunk” has been in the truck for awhile. It has been rented many times and traveled to many cities by many mysterious characters, such as Iggy “the bookie” bartender, Madame DuBois - the eccentric washed-up film star and Nick Niagra and Edie Buffet - the talentless lounge act. Who left the trunk on the truck? Federal Agents Muledeer and Sullen are hot on the trail. Could it be a haphazard homicide by one of the shady characters? Or could it be an “alien” abduction and murder with a major government cover-up as Agent Muledeer suspects? 

Cost: $60 per individual or $550 per table of 10 (includes dinner)
Sponsorships are available. All proceeds benefit SOTX athletes in the Beaumont area.
