Gasp And Laugh Over Dinner in "The Sound of Murder"

"The Sound of Murder" is a play that highlights the golden age of radio and the future rise of television. Set in the 1940's, the story revolves around the radio station, WMDR, and their efforts to keep their program running. If their newest show does not go well, the station will run out of business. 

WMDR runs into even more trouble when the station owner's son tries to sabotage the show to start his own TV segment. As the workers stress to make the next radio show absoluetly perfect, things get all to real when someone is murdered. The play is full of suspense, love, and even flatulence that can only be carried out by a cast of wacky characters. 

"The Sound of Murder" is presented by the Strauss Theatre Center, and performanes are set for February 21, 22, 28, and 29 from 6:30 to 9:00 p.m. Benjamin Goss, an actor in the play, says, "The ticket cost is $50 and that comes with the show, a dinner, and free wine or beer for those of age." 

On top of dinner, the audience will get to participate in the play. According to actor John Price, "The audience tables will be assigned different types of noises or activities and they will participate with their sound  that when our station manager gives them a cue."

The theatre asks guests to arrive at least 30 minutes prior to their scheduled performance to allow time to park. Friendly ushers will assist latecomers to a seat at an appropriate moment at the discretion of the theatre. Doors open promptly at 6pm.
