Newburgh Community Theater's next event will be a night of firsts.
The productions will be the group’s first attempt at hosting a murder mystery event, which will be the first in memory for the community as well.
Newburgh Community Theater will be bringing to life “I’m Getting Murdered in the Morning,” by playwright Lee Mueller. The play brings in the audience as members of a wedding reception gone tragically and comically wrong.
There will be a public performance at 7 p.m. Feb. 17 at Preservation Hall at 200 State St. in Newburgh Indiana, but the cast will also be taking the show to a private performance the next day at Rolling Hills Country Club.
After watching their daughter tie the knot, the wealthy Montagues receive an unwelcome surprise when a mysterious man drops dead on the dance floor at the reception. Public relations panic ensues as family secrets come to light and a nosey and obtrusive society columnist looks forward to writing the scandal of the season.
The rehearsals over the last month have kept the cast belly laughing almost continuously.
