The Comical Mystery Tour ensemble invites the public to join the fun with their holiday program “You Can’t Toy with Death” when they return to the mansion for a murder mystery dinner theater performance on Saturday, November 25. Doors open at 5:00 pm. Program starts and first course served at 5:30 pm. Open seating.
The action takes place in the Elfsecutive Board Room, inside the Main Lodge on the Island Of Nitwit Toys. (This island is especially reserved for toys deemed too stupid, anti-social or poorly-designed for mere banishment to the better-known and neighboring Island Of Misfit Toys.) Due to a computer glitch, there won’t be quite enough toys to go around on Christmas Eve. Five Nitwit Toys are vying for the single parole slot that will get them into Santa’s bag this year. An emergency dinner session of the Special Handling Review Inquiry Mediation Parole Section (SHRIMPS for, well, short) has been convened to make a recommendation. Jealousy, hidden secrets and retribution are in the air tonight.
The five characters are Jack in the Boombox, Harry Pothead, Meddle-Lynn, Malibu Bimbi and Stinky Winky the Teleblubby.
In production since 1995, The Comical Mystery Tour has had over 50,000 audience members viewing and/or participating in their programs. The ensemble has appeared many times at Ventfort Hall.
Cost to attend is $40 per person including a full course dinner. A cash bar is available for beer and wine. Reservations are required by Monday, Nov. 20th. Seating is limited. For reservations call Ventfort Hall at 413-637-3206.
