Photo Flash: First Look - Beef & Boards' 44th Season Opens Tonight with SHEAR MADNESS

Beef & Boards Dinner Theatre opens its 44th Season with the Indiana debut of Shear Madness, the first of four new shows on its stage in 2017. This play, known as "America's favorite comedy whodunit," will have audiences rolling in the aisles as they help detangle the clues of a murder mystery in a not-so-typical hair salon. BroadwayWorld has a first look at the cast in action below!

Featuring a unique blend of madcap improvisation and spine-tickling mystery, and set right here in Indianapolis, the Beef & Boards production features local references throughout the show and up-to-the-minute spontaneous humor.

When the old lady upstairs is murdered, the audience gets to spot the clues, question the suspects, and solve the funniest mystery in the annals of crime. The outcome is never the same, which is why many audience members return again and again to the scene of the mayhem.

Shear Madness stars Jeff Stockberger as Nick O'Brien, the cop; Daniel Klingler as Tony Whitcomb, the salon owner; Jenny Reber as the hairdresser Barbara DeMarco; Suzanne Stark as the socialite Mrs. Eleanor Shubert; Nathan Robbins as the undercover cop Mikey Thomas, and Michael Shelton as the mystery man Eddie Lawrence.

Shear Madness is on stage for 30 performances through Jan. 29 in the intimate space of Beef & Boards Dinner Theatre. Tickets range from $42.50 to $67.50 and include Chef Odell Ward's holiday buffet and select beverages. Parking is always free. For reservations, call the box office at 317.872.9664 anytime between 10 a.m. and 7 p.m. Tuesday through Sunday and from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Mondays.
