It’s a new year, and there’s a new murder mystery waiting to be solved at Blue Moon Dinner Theatre, where audiences just might ruffle a few feathers as they attempt to guess which cast member will be caught “chocolate handed” — all without getting egg on their face.
“The Case of the Malted Falcon” opens Saturday at the Blue Moon in downtown Johnson City and will play Friday and Saturday nights through Jan. 28.
Private Eye Sam Club is in hot chocolate — er, hot water — when the priceless edible chocolate sculpture he’s guarding is stolen while it’s being transported by train to the Gallery of Amazingly Great Art (GAGA) in New York City. Is the thief Velma Vavoomski, Sam’s ditzy secretary? Famous TV chef Rachael Raven? Bird Activist Abigail Nightingale? Or one of the other interactive comedic murder mystery’s wacky characters?
It’s up to the audience to help Sam and amateur sleuth Miss Marbles solve the crime.
“The Case of the Malted Falcon” stars Colleen Dunne, Linda Wakely, Angus Walton, Clayton Van Huss, Laura Berry, Ryan Poe, Abbey Greer and Jim Andes. Stage manager is Kelsey Duncan.
Doors open at 6 p.m., and the show begins at 7:30.
Tickets for dinner, dessert and the show start at $40. Show-only tickets (starting at $15) and show and dessert tickets (starting at $20) are also available. Groups of 10 or more receive a discount.
Coming up later this season at the Blue Moon is “Kitchen Witches,” a comedy about Dolly and Isobel, a couple of TV cooks who also happen to be archenemies. Trouble starts brewing when the two kitchen witches get cast in the same cable access cooking show. “Kitchen Witches” opens Feb. 10.
Other shows on tap include “The Irish Eyes Murders,” “The Odd Couple,” “Murder at the Tonylou Awards,” “First Baptist of Ivy Gap,” “Red, White and Tuna,” “The Case of the Motorcoach Murders,” “The Lone Star Love Potion,” “Maul of the Dead” and “Dracula.”
