WHODUNIT? An Improvised Murder Mystery At The Contemporary Theater Company
The Contemporary Theater Company takes murder mysteries to the next level this winter with Whodunit? An Improvised Murder Mystery. Audiences are not the only ones wondering who the murderer is - the actors do not know either!
The Contemporary Theater Company brings back the popular Whodunit? An Improvised Murder Mystery with a Pay-What-You-Can preview on January 26 and performances every Saturday from February 2 to March 23.
"Whodunit is one of our favorite projects ever," says cast member Maggie Cady. "It's a wild ride where we never know what might happen!"
Before the show begins, we know just a few basics. It takes place in the 80s. The actors have character names and professions - everything from a one-hit-wonder to a televangelist to a cruise director. The only other thing the cast knows is that someone will not survive the night.
"People have a hard time believing that we don't plan it out ahead of time," says Cady, "but if you come to more than one show, you'll see that they are all completely different. We don't know who is getting murdered until it happens!"
Every show is different and anything can happen. Anyone could be a murderer. Anyone could be murdered.
The last two years many audience members attended several shows, enjoying a new story each time and collecting one of the production's trading cards at each performance.
The company is also preparing for a full-length improvised soap opera this summer, which will feature a story that builds over the whole summer.
Tickets for performances and more information about the company are available online at www.contemporarytheatercompany.com or by calling 401-218-0282.
