Lancaster High School Presents "I'm Getting Murdered In the Morning"

I'm Getting Murdered In the Morning cast of Lancaster High School
 Lancaster High School Academy of Visual and Performing Arts in Lancaster NY, will host its annual Murder Mystery Dinner Theatre - I’m Getting Murdered in the Morning by Lee Mueller on Saturday, May 14, with performances at 1 and 5 p.m.
"I’m Getting Murdered in the Morning” is a humorous murder mystery that takes place at a wedding reception. During the garter toss at Brenda and Eddie's Wedding Reception, a mysterious man falls dead on the dance floor from a gun shot. Luckily the bride's father -the wealthy Harold Montague -invited Damage control expert Mr. Parker to the event.
 Parker tries "spinning" the murder as "nothing to worry about" but Society columnist Mary Berger insists "something be done". Something like - hold the presses because this could be the "Society Scandal" of the year. Not only was a man shot during the garter toss but it seems the mysterious Dead Man has ties to both the Groom and Bride's family. Secrets that both sides do not wish to reveal. None the less, with some persuasion of Mr. Parker, the reception continues as planned and the Murder Mystery takes a back seat. For a while.
The Dinner Theatre is only one aspect of Lancaster’s Festival of Arts. There are many events taking place from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. that day.  Admission to the Festival of the Arts is free, and tickets for the dinner theatre performances are available for $15. The ticket includes admission to the show, a Chiavetta’s chicken dinner with drink and dessert, and a free spin on the prize wheel. Chiavetta’s dinners will also be available for takeout after 1 p.m. until sold out for $9 each.
