CLEARWATER – The Detective Dinner Theater will present “Murder on the Red Carpet!” on Saturdays, May 27 through Sept. 30 at the Belleview Biltmore Resort and Spa. Doors will open at 7 p.m. with dinner and show beginning at 7:30.
The Detective Dinner Theater is an interactive murder mystery dinner theater that involves the audience in the action. Each table is the “front row” as the cast walks freely about the room during the entire performance. Each scene is followed by a dinner course, and before it’s over, the audience is invited to guess whodunit. The cast gives out prizes for the person, or persons, who solves the murder and has the most correct clues.
“Murder on the Red Carpet!”, written, directed and produced by Charla Garrison, is set in 1950s Hollywood, when movie stars were glamorous and gossip columnists weren’t so bad. At the movie premiere of the beautiful (and not-so talented) Valentine Day, rival gossip columnists Millie Spooner and Willa Foxwell covering the affair try to out-scoop each other, interviewing audience members. Valentine Day will be there, as well as detective Scott, who fancies himself a movie star now that he was a consultant on the movie. Nothing short of murder could ruin this night – which is exactly what happens!
Regular performance cost is $49.95 a person, $45.95 for seniors and $45.95 a person for groups of 20 or more. Tax not included in prices. Reservations are required.
