Published DateLACONIA — The Winnipesaukee Playhouse improv troupe Happenstance will be performing Midway Murder, an interactive murder mystery dinner show at the Belknap Mill in Laconia on Thursday, May 23 at 7 p.m.
Happenstance is a brand new group that focuses on improvisational theatre, including both short form and long form, and teaches members the basic concepts that make up both.
Midway Murder is an original comedy, created and performed by the members, and is the first of what will be many performances of its type by Happenstance. Set in 1931, with the Great Depression weighing heavy on Americans and Prohibition still in effect, the show brings the once-great Blotto & Blarney Traveling Circus Extravaganza to Laconia as it continues its tour across the country.
Can the murder of one of their own break up the act for good? With this shady cast of characters, secrets and intrigue abound as they ask for the audience's help in solving this bizarre whodunit.
Midway Murder will be performed for one night only. Tickets are $15 and as seating is extremely limited, reservations are required. Dinner will be a neighborly potluck and the always popular BYOB. To purchase tickets, go to www.winniplayhouse.org or call the box office at (603) 366-7377.
