Mystery, comedy meet at Village Church

The Village Church will be transformed into a mystery dinner theater when the Village Players present “Murder at the Orient Express” on Oct. 2 and 3.

The play is a spoof on the Agatha Christie novel and takes place in a Chinese restaurant run by a German waitress played by Erica Padgett and two Irish sisters played by Jane Feldman and Michele Bluhm. John Chalmers plays Seymour Twitt, the richest and most ruthless man in town who hires ace private eye Dudley Sharpe (Peter Gustini) to find out who’s been sending him threatening notes.

They meet at the restaurant on a fateful snowy night, and a murder is committed. In Agatha Christie style, Sharpe must unravel the identities of the 12 suspects in the room with a blizzard cutting them all off from escape. Will Sharpe be fortunate enough to crack the case and serve up justice on a pu pu platter?

The play performance will include dinner. Reservations are required since seating will be limited. Individual tickets are $35, and $250 for a table of eight. To reserve a spot, visit www.villagechurch.org or e-mail villagechurchdrama@gmail.com.
