Take a walk on the spooky side when Stageworks of Culpeper presents Polter-Heist, an audience participation murder mystery by Tony Schwartz and Marylou Ambrose. The curtain rises on October 20 and 21, 2023. Proceeds from the dinner theater event will benefit Windmore Foundation for the Arts.
The action takes place at The Mouldering Pines Inn, where the Bogeyman Outreach Organization (BOO), a support group for ghosts, is holding its annual convention. As BOO members, you’ll observe a séance, meet the Inn’s ghoul-in-residence, and learn dark secrets about every cast member. Besides Madam Zelda and the Professor, you’ll also meet Phyllis and Jim Lodge, the Inn’s squabbling owners, Dana Skullery and Fox Smolder, from BOO’s Washington, D.C., chapter (or are they?), and Jace from Outer Space a DJ with a past. Will Madam Zelda help the ghost relocate? Will the Lodges stop arguing long enough to get their hands on the treasure map? Is the Professor who he claims to be? And who committed the murder? The murder? That’s right—the murder! Someone will be ruthlessly murdered at the end of the show, and it’s up to you to solve the crime!
