NORFOLK – The Northeast Players at Northeast Community College will present a murder mystery dinner theatre production later this month. Pioneer Drama’s “Café Murder” will be staged Friday, October 25 in the Life Long Learning Center on the Northeast campus in Norfolk. Doors will open at
7 p.m. with a spaghetti dinner served at 7:30 p.m.
The production centers around Rosemary Saint-John, played by Priscila Vinson, who is an obnoxious hypochondriac, convinced she is allergic to water.  Celebrating her birthday at a restaurant with her four kooky sisters, played by Claire Wetzel, Kat Stuthman, Sarah Lutjens, and Tarrah Oliverius, Rosemary makes enemies with everyone around her.  When she disappears and is presumed murdered, the only objective witnesses in the restaurant are the audience members, who must cast their vote.  Was it one of Rosemary’s sisters?  Was it the self-taught detective, played by Brian Koch?  Perhaps it was the passionate French chef, played by Daniel Vinson, the polite and proper maître d’, portrayed by Patrick Brown, or the sarcastic waiter, played by William Eisenhauer?
Pioneer Drama’s “Café Murder,” written by Nathan Hartswick and directed by Maria Olnes and April Taylor, aims to challenge the audience to solve the mystery by interrogating the suspects and voting for who murdered Miss Rosemary. No one is above suspicion in this delightful dinner theatre murder mystery! Whether you are young or old, you’ll find lots of laughs at the café!
Reservations are being accepted through October 21at the discount rate of $15 for adults, $10
