Regular readers may be anxious to know how our murder mystery turned out, and I kept them in suspense by neglecting to post either Saturday or Sunday. Or perhaps I flatter myself. For anybody just tuning in, I refer to Shooting at the Grange, which we presented to benefit Salisbury Grange on April 29.
I foolishly did not get pictures of each character, but I did take a few shots while the actors mingled with the audience before the scripted part of the performance.
Everybody seemed to be having a fine time. For my part, I was a little uncomfortable, because I am usually one of the actors. I wanted to be out there interacting with the audience, dropping clues and dissing the other characters!
They served pulled pork, corn, potatoes, cole slaw and rolls. The actors and I ate after the performance. It was delicious!
The whole thing went pretty well. The audience seemed to enjoy it. The actors did a good job. The Grange people are hoping we will return with another murder mystery, perhaps this fall.
I personally need to take a break. When I mentioned this to a co-worker on Friday (incidentally, I had named the victim after this particular co-worker), he said, “Then on Monday, you’ll say, ‘I have an opportunity to write another murder mystery.’ ”
Who, me? Write another murder mystery?
