The Hills Community Theatre cast and crew will perform their fourth annual adult dinner theatre on March 7, 8, 14 and 15.
The cast will present the play, “The Plot, Like Gravy, Thickens,” by Billy St. John, produced by special arrangement with Samuel French, Inc.
“The Plot, Like Gravy, Thickens” is a murder mystery/comedy with audience interaction. Special storm effects, creative costumes and friendly interaction make this play a “must see” production, according to organizers.
The plot summary reads as follows:
Ever want to commit a murder? Walter, the playwright’s alter ego in this madcap mystery, demonstrates just how to do someone in … in your imagination, of course!
You will be introduced to the tyrannical millionaire Edward Worthington. Gathered on a stormy evening at Worthington Manor to celebrate Edward’s fiftieth birthday is his attractive wife, her playboy brother, Edward’s befuddled older sister, his ex-wife and his daughter.
Also present is his shady lawyer, his uptight business manager with his giddy wife, his sexy southern secretary as well as the butler, the housekeeper, the maid and the cook. Each has a motive that is barely established when the lights go out.
The Community Theatre organization continues to grow, and new community members come to the play each year, according to local directors.
Cast members from Hills, Steen, Luverne, Larchwood and Sioux Falls make up the cast for this year’s play.
They invite anyone who wants to be a part of theater, on stage or back stage, to join the Hills Community Theatre organization.
