Murder play tickets on sale
Possum Point Players will present "A Little Murder Never Hurt Anybody" at Delaware Technical and Community College, Georgetown, Jan. 22, 23, 28 and 29. Dinner will be served at 6:30 p.m. on Jan. 22, 28 and 29 and at 12:30 p.m on Jan. 23. The production will follow the meal. Tickets are $27 each and include dinner.
Directed by Georgetown resident Esther Friend, "A Little Murder Never Hurt Anybody" is "a clever mystery that will send you rolling in your seats," she said. "This show is a lot of fun. And, it is not just the show, but the entire evening (or afternoon) activity is quite enjoyable. Where else could you see such talent, and enjoy such great food?"
"For a long time, Possum Point Players have been known for their successful dinner theatre, which is only done once a year," according to Judy Dean, president of the Players.
"We have people who only come to our dinner theatre, just because the combination of food, theatre, conversation and company is something that is very desirable. Del Tech is a great place to have the show because their caterer always does an outstanding job, and their auditorium is large enough, almost double the size of Possum Hall, to accommodate all the people who wish to come."
Reservations are being taken on Possum Point Player's 24 hour ticket line at 856-4560.
