The internationally popular game is now a fun-filled musical which brings the world's best known suspects to life and invites the audience to help solve the mystery: who killed Mr. Boddy, in what room and with what weapon. The audience will help deduce the solution from clues given throughout the fun-filled evening. Audience members choose from cards representing the potential murderers, weapons and rooms; there are 216 possible solutions! Comic antics, witty lyrics and beguiling music carry the investigation from room to room. Even after the culprit confesses, a surprise twist will delight you!
Performances will be Sept 16 - Oct 2 on Friday & Saturdays at 7:30 pm and Sundays at 2:00 pm. Tickets are $18 for adults, $16 for students & seniors.
Help Us Upgrade Our Theater Lighting System
We need help raising funds to update our theater lighting system. Our current system is very outdated and parts are no longer manufactured for the system. We are fundraising to upgrade to digital technology, which allows for more precise control of the lighting and the ability to add special effects. We have already raised 2/3rds of the funds needed. We need to raise another $10K in order to move forward with the upgrade. We really need to have the new lighting in place for our summer musical.
As with most theaters, ticket sales cover only a portion of our costs, and our productions would not be possible without additional financial contributions from community members who value the arts. Please help keep the mission of Schoolhouse alive by becoming a member today by making a tax-deductible membership donation.
The Daytime Players, originally organized by seniors for seniors, are actors of all ages.

The Daytime Players perform in theaters, halls, retirement homes, meeting rooms – basically, wherever there’s an audience!
