MIDDLEPORT — A “Cafe Murder” a comedy/mystery where the audience gets to solve the crime, will be presented by the River City Players at 7 p.m. on Saturday in the Middleport Village Hall auditorium.
The RCP have assembled a comedic cast of veteran performers who Roger Gilmore describes as “having difficulty making it through the rehearsals because they are laughing to hard.”
“Café Murder” is a hilarious murder mystery-comedy for which the River City Players (RCP) Community Theater has assembled a killer (pun-intended) comedic cast. The cast list includes: Celia McCoy as an overbearing, hypochondriacal birthday girl, eldest of five sisters; Dixie Sayre her sister, an aging hippie, paranoid and quite inappropriate; Linda Warner, another sister who is a very proper conservative bank executive, intelligent, and sexually repressed; Jessica Holliday, another sister, self-absorbed, airhead “Valley Girl”; Janis Carnahan, the sister who is a long-haul trucker – rude, crude, and thinks she’s a dude; Gary Walker, a scattered, self-taught detective with a limited vocabulary; Mike Kennedy, an incompetent waiter; Tony Carnahan, a French chef for whom a great deal is lost in translation; and Roger Gilmore, a snooty maitre’d and owner of the restaurant. This talented group of RCP veterans promises to provide a real laugh riot, and you don’t want to miss the fun.
While this will not be a dinner theater presentation, appetizers and desserts will be served prior to and during the performance. The doors open at 6:30 p.m. Admission is $10 with advance seating available through the Fabric Shop in Pomeroy or at the door.
