When the creative team responsible for a recent Broadway flop assemble for a backer’s audition for a new musical on a suburban estate, things turn deadly with plenty of confusing murders and knotty plots to unravel in John Bishop’s comedic thriller. This ingenious and wildly comic romp spoofs the great murder mystery movies of the 1940s, leaving the audience to wonder, whodunit?

We welcome non-traditional casting – all roles are open to all races and ethnic diversities (unless specifically noted in the character description).

Rehearsals will be held on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays beginning in November, with the exception of the final week of tech, for which all will be called nearly every night of the week. If you have any questions, please email us at
