There were blackouts and loud noises and people running all over and the audience that filled Liberty Hall didn’t have a clue what was going on.
The mayhem happened several times throughout the play and the audience was kept guessing right until the very last suspense filled moment as to who did it.
This year’s Liberty Hall Dinner Theatre, an audience-participation comedy mystery by Pat Cook, You have the right to remain dead presented by The Springdale Players, proved to be a delightful mixture of murder, mystery and intrigue.
As usual, the play was presented to a packed house last Saturday, and the audience was treated to a delicious meal prepared by Springdale Ladies Club before settling down to watch and actually participate in the play.
This year’s play had a unique twist as the actors on stage cleverly implicated everyone in the audience as one of the potential suspects for the murder.
Springdale Players is made up of a group of actors who combine raw talent with dedication, humour and wonderful community spirit.
The talented crew came from a varied background and included Grant Harris who and has been involved with Liberty Hall for more than 40 years along with Josh Gundlach and Carrie Kitchen, who made their debut performance with Springdale Players this year.
Other veteran actors included in the cast of five men and five women are Pam Terry, Karen and Merv Steeves, Ernie Closs, Trish Matthews, Journey Giesbrecht and Don Leighton.
The play is directed by Connie Jensen and stage manager is Joey Jensen.
Remaining performances will be held Feb. 20 and 27 and a matinee will be held Feb. 22.
