When the slipper fits a sweet young peasant, the wedding is hastily planned for later that day, but it is revealed that his bride-to-be is an impostor.

    A band of lovable yet impossibly inept thespians are taking on a genre that will not die—the murder mystery! In this whodunit, the misguided performers attempt to nail down devilish British accents, understand what a red herring is, and figure out how to die onstage without looking all gross and stuff. Meanwhile, the director and stage manager wouldn't really try to murder someone during the murder mystery. Would they?! Learn More

After dealing with some very colorful actors, the stage manager loses all patience, and we soon find out that one of the actors is not who he/she appears to be. This play is theatrical mayhem with a twist that will have you rolling in the aisles! Learn More
