I thought I would give another plug to Secrets at Suiter House, the murder mystery dinner theatre to benefit the Herkimer County Historical Society. The event will take place at Ilion Moose Lodge, 302 Barringer Rd., on March 31. Doors open at 5 p.m. $20 per person includes an all you can eat spaghetti dinner. There will also be a Chinese Auction with some really good prizes.
It is one week from Saturday! Yikes! I still don’t know what I’m wearing! And there are a few more props I need to gather! And does everybody in the cast know about the next rehearsal?
Oh dear, that was not a plug. That was me dithering and probably did not leave a good impression. I must correct that. This murder mystery will be a lot of fun. There are some good laughs in the script, along with some intriguing clues and local references. Actually, the whole script is local. It concerns a wealthy philanthropist (played by me) who is sponsoring the next exhibit at the Herkimer County Historical Society (whose museum, of course, is located in the Suiter House). The dinner is a contest to decide who will be the curator. Naturally there are a few hard feelings amongst the would-be curators, and EVERYBODY has a secret or two.
I last heard some 20 tickets were still available. Are they still? I don’t know! For more information you can contact the historical society at 315-866-6413.
