Murder Takes A Holiday

By Tim Kelly

December 1,2 8,9,10 15,16,17 22,23, 2017
8:00 p.m. Friday & Saturday
2:00 p.m. Sunday Matinee

Harry Thompson and his sister, Diane, are sent to an isolated ski lodge in the mountains of New Hampshire on an undercover mission. They don't know that two guests have been weirdly murdered. When they encounter the remarkable Mrs. Bowman, a mountain climber with a dangerous secret, excitement and chills are on the menu. Twist after twist, thrill after thrill, the play will keep you guessing until the final moment. A fascinating stage puzzle Murder Takes a Holiday terminates in an avalanche of tense excitement and laughter for the whole family.

Directed by Keli Solomon
