Agatha Christie's A MURDER IS ANNOUCED will be playing at the Derby Dinner Playhouse through November 12th, making it a night filled with murder and mayhem, Derby Dinner style!

A MURDER IS ANNOUNCED begins when, just as the name implies, a murder is announced in the local paper, citing Miss Blackmore's Victorian home as the scene of the crime. As friends from the village begin to visit, hoping to witness the bizarre event unfold, shots ring out into the night. But did the killer have a motive? Was there an accomplice? You'll find out soon enough, as Miss Marple helps the detective find the answers in true Agatha Christie form!

A MURDER IS ANNOUNCED is directed by Bekki Jo Schneider and was adapted from the Agatha Christie novel by Leslie Darbon. 

The cast will include Derby Dinner favorites Rita Thomas, Zachary Burrell, Tina Jo Wallace, Janet Essenpreis, Elizabeth Loos, Debbie King-Raque, David Meyers and more.

With so many brilliant performances that it's difficult to pick just one or two, this is the cast to see if you hope to catch Derby Dinner Playhouse at its finest. Tina Jo Wallace is purely phenomenal in the role of Mitzi, adding a bit of humor to mix with the intrigue. And Meyers and Loos light up the stage with the cleverly portrayed performances of the inspector and Miss Blackmore. But did Rita Thomas as the witty Miss Marple completely steal the show? You'll have to see it for yourself to find out!

The Derby Dinner Playhouse is located in Clarksville, Indiana... right over the bridge from Louisville, Kentucky. It is a theater in the round, and has been in operation since 1974, making it one of the oldest and largest continuously operating theatres in the country!

You will always receive a top notch production for your ticket price, along with a mouth-watering meal, served buffet style, boasting favorites like fried catfish, mouth-watering pasta selections and a meat carving station. Some of the best desserts around are also offered, like the Delicious Death!
