Murder mystery coming to Baldwin-Reynolds House Museum in Meadville through cooperative effort with Academy Theatre

MEADVILLE — The Academy Theatre presents the Spotlight Production of “A Plot of Murder,” a murder-mystery dinner theater, on Oct. 18 and 19 at 6:30 p.m. and Oct. 20 at 2 at the Baldwin-Reynolds House Museum, 639 Terrace St. Tickets include dinner and the show for $40.

A Neighborhood Association meeting is the scene of chaos. Lou Braunhorst, friendly neighbor and conspiracy theorist, has information that the quiet streets will soon be re-zoned for commercial development. He also believes that Black Helicopters are transmitting signals through his satellite dish that put a “liberal spin” on his TV programs.

But some of Lou’s concerns do have validity. Councilman Ratcliff, who knows more about the neighborhood “take-over” than he wishes to reveal, can’t stay around because he is participating as an Elvis Impersonator at Elvis-O-Rama and must leave.

Before Elvis can “leave the building,” someone ends up dead. See if you can figure out who the murderer is before Secret Agent McManshon can.

Directoring this production is Tom Hall, whose excitement is in “making the audience part of the Home Owners Association and therefore part of the show, it is going to add to their enjoyment.

And if you can correctly identify the culprit, you may win a prize,” Hall said.
