A Party to Murder

Teresa Wentzel

Six people have come in secret on Halloween to play a murder mystery game at rustic island cottage.  Invited by writer Charles Prince, they appear set for a weekend of fun until ghosts from the past begin to haunt the proceedings and it becomes clear that all is not as it seems. The game takes on a sinister dimension when guests begin to die and the remaining players realize that they are playing for their lives.  Tension rises.  Secret passageways, incriminating letters, hidden compartments, bodies in the window seat, and a twenty-five year old unsolved mystery twist and turn toward the unexpected and terrifying conclusion.

Much Ado Out West

Teresa Wentzel

               (This show has been CANCELLED.)

Pedro, Ben and Claude discover that while they've been away at the Civil War, Betty and the other womenfolk have been doing all of the roping and ranching.  This Western romp is inspired by Shakespeare's hilarious battle-of-the-sexes romantic comedy, "Much Ado About Nothing."  Despite how much the cowpokes and the ladies of the ranch taunt each other, love seems to be in the air.  Claude falls head over heels in love with Winny, a lovely Southern belle, but Calamity Jane, a rambunctious tomboy, secretly longs for Claude's affections and is bent on stirring up a big bowl of trouble when she doesn't get her way.  Meanwhile, Ben and Betty are arch-rivals, only happy when they are insulting each other...or is it just their way of masking their deeply guarded feelings for one another?  This show is filled with witty, Western-flavored dialogue, Shakespearian twists and turns, and lots of wild and untamed characters.
