Overview:
This hilarious murder mystery comedy is easy to produce and perfect for either a stage production or dinner theatre.  Rosemary Saint-John is a loud, annoying hypochondriac convinced she is allergic to water.  Celebrating her birthday at a restaurant with her four kooky sisters–a hippie, a valley girl, a trucker and a banker–Rosemary makes enemies with everyone around her.  When she disappears and is presumed murdered, the only objective witnesses in the restaurant are the audience members, who must cast their vote.  Was it one of Rosemary’s sisters?  The self-taught detective?  The passionate French chef?  The polite and proper maître d’?  The sarcastic waiter?  No one is above suspicion in this delightful dinner theatre murder mystery!  Immensely popular with audiences, this play is appropriate for young performers, while older actors will enjoy improvised audience interaction.  Whether for young or old, you’ll find lots of laughs at the café!

Overview:

Celebrate the joy of reading in a fresh, fun-filled, and musical way — the enormously popular children’s play, The Enchanted Bookshop, is now a musical!

An ordinary used book shop by day, A Likely Story becomes a magical place each night.  Thanks to a spell from the Book Fairy, the characters inside the books come alive each and every night.  Six of those characters — Dorothy Gale, Robin Hood, Pollyanna, Sherlock Holmes, Heidi, and Tom Sawyer — long to help Margie, the scatterbrained owner, save her struggling store.  But they’re not allowed to leave the building or be seen by human eyes.

So when a pair of bungling smugglers comes looking for a stolen necklace hidden inside one of the books, the characters are torn.  Should they warn Margie and risk disappearing forever?  Or can they find a way to defeat the crooks without being seen?

Including appearances by other literary characters such as the Queen of Hearts, Long John Silver, and Doctor Doolittle, and with a toe-tapping score from Stephen Murray featuring jazz, march, and pop tunes, this charming musical will enchant audiences young and old.
