There’s been a “murder” at a town meeting and citizens of Scott and surrounding counties have a role in solving it – while being served a scrumptious four-course dinner by the Georgetown College cafeteria staff.
James Hamblin, a ’99 Georgetown graduate and former College Maskrafter, is directing “The Great Town Meeting Murder” at 7 p.m., March 29, 30 and 31. The ballroom in Cooke Memorial Hall, next to Giddings – the main administration building – will be transformed into a dinner theatre setting. “Oh, I’ve done lots of dinner theatre, but this is the first one I’ve written,” said Hamblin, who was the associate director for last fall’s musical production “Grease.”
Picture the late Sixties and a town hall gathering of people there to hear a (con) man who has promised to turn their ‘burg into a “Branson, Missouri.” “It’s farcical and fun,” Hamblin said. “And, the audience gets to participate!”
Tickets are $10 for students and $20 for the general public. Tickets can be bought at the Caf or reservations made by calling The Store at (502) 863-8134. The show and dinner lasts approximately two hours.
