Someone in Morgan Mill will meet their maker on Aug. 22 - no worries, though, it’s all in good fun.
The Morgan Mill Methodist Church is hosting a dinner theater presentation of “Murder, Mayhem and Marshmallow Salad,” a play that follows a cast of characters through a tumultuous dinner on the grounds.
The plot revolves around an oddly matched pairing of Even Keel, a small town pastor who is a little absent-minded and has difficulty with public speaking, and his wife, who is described as a “flamboyant” type who wants to be an actress. During the church social, a visiting pastor from Pennsylvania begins to sniff around and to solicit employment by passing out his business cards. Other characters join in on the mystery, but in the end, you must purchase a ticket to find out what happens when this church social goes awry.
During the play, diners will be presented with a spaghetti dinner with all the trimmings and will be treated to an up close and personal view of the cast, as they wander through the Morgan Mill Community Center and involve the audience in their mayhem.
The plot and vittles sound delectable, but you had better act fast if you would like to partake in the marshmallow salad. The church only has five tickets left.
According to ticket salesman Robert Holland, the church has already sold 91 tickets and therefore packed out the venue, which will be held in the Morgan Mill Community Center.
Tickets for the dinner and show are $7.50 and interested parties can call Holland at (817) 291-4551.
