Murder on the Oriental Rug

By Fantastical Theatricals (other events)

7 Dates Through Oct 14, 2015

Show dates:  October  9, and 14.

Tickets are still available for October 9 & 14

Join Fantastical Theatricals at The Chop House as we celebrate our TENTH anniversary by doing what we do best: Upping the body count with this hilarious parody of Agatha Christie mysteries!

When half the cast of "Murder on the Oriental Rug" bails out, the remaining performers are stuck playing all the roles. During the first act, you'll meet a Shakespearean actor with a drinking problem, a washed-up former child star, a bimbo with a short memory, and a hapless costumer who finds herself onstage -- playing a man.
During the "play within a play," you'll visit the exclusive clinic of Dr. Charles Ovary, renowned hot flash specialist who's secretly treating a famous actress trying desperately to regain her youth. You'll get to know the doctor's coldly efficient wife, his passionate female protégé, the actresses' hunky husband, a flighty French maid, a shifty handyman, and an inspector investigating the dead body on the Oriental rug.
Will the play make it to Broadway? Will the performers remember their lines? Will the Shakespearean actor fit into the maid's costume? Will the chalk outline come out of the rug? Will the inspector solve the murder? Will another murder occur?

Admission: Kids and Adults $15.00 plus menu ordering.

Your seats are reserved for 6:30PM

At that time, we will show you to your seats and your server will take your dinner order. You may see some familiar characters in the dining room before the show begins. Early arrival does not gain early admittance, nor change the preassigned seating .

An hour and a half after seating starts, the play will begin around you, right there in the dining room and the audience will have the opportunity to help solve the murder! (That is, IF you want to, we won't make you!)

About halfway through the play, we'll take a break so that your servers can make sure you have everything you need! (A very reasonable server's gratuity of 18% will be added to your check for your convenience.)

For more information call 859-229-2518

Regrettable, due to very limited seating, all admission purchases are final, but if you cannot attend, we will happily exchange them for another date or show.
