Mark your calendars for a special murder mystery night. The Bishop England Drama Club will present an evening of murder and mayhem as the BE Players take the stage in their production of “Rehearsal for Murder.” Please join Bishop England at the BE Performing Arts Center on Friday, Nov. 8 and Saturday, Nov. 9 at 7 p.m. and be ready to discover whodunit. Bishop England’s outstanding cast includes Sam Lawton, Beth Dutour, Hannah Warren, Lara Brooksbank, Logan Stich, Mollie Johnson, Dalton Hester, Cal Schaafsma, Corey Clancy, Robert Seney, Donovan Thompson, Ashley Devaney, Nicole Loftis and many others. Senior Kathleen Hart is the returning stage manager.
When his leading lady (and fiancée) Monica Welles (Beth Dutour) is found dead from an apparent suicide after the opening night of her Broadway stage debut, playwright Alex Dennison (Sam Lawton) is left heartbroken. On the first anniversary of her death, he gathers the cast and crew from that ill-fated night in the same Broadway theater, ostensibly to read a new play he is working on, a mystery in which a famous actress is killed. As the reading progresses, the scenes seem to the cast to be uncomfortably close to actual encounters they might have had with Monica. Can you follow the clues and solve the mystery? If you do, you might even win a prize.
So head over to Bishop England for the premier of “Rehearsal for Murder.” Doors open at 6:30 p.m. both nights.
