Murderous Night at the Museum
It's time for the Knotting Museum to unveil its newest exhibit, The Tomb of Aepep and His Mistress, and several local celebrities have been invited to the big exhibition. Much to the pleasure of museum curator Darlene Kisser, the event seems to be running smoothly. Smoothly, that is, until the egotistical film starlet, Elizabeth Rose, and the washed-up singer, Joy Mond, are both murdered and panic ensues. Someone needs to figure out whodunit before another murder occurs, and it doesn't take long for each of the guests to begin playing detective. The only problem is that one of these detectives is actually the murderer. Is it the cold cut loving man from New York? His photo snapping wife? One of the bratty teenage twin sisters? Read more...The love struck magician? The forgetful chemist? The thief or her clumsy companion? When the museum's mummified exhibit comes to life, the audience has the chance to assist the guests in determining who murdered Elizabeth and Joy. With a slew of zany characters, absurd situations and a messy food fight, this audience-participation murder mystery comedy is ideal for high school, college and community theatre groups.
