Village Theatre Troupe Presents "Occupation Murder"
Posted on 07/15/2014

On the heels of the triumphant spring performance of Peter Pan, the Orland Park Theater Troupe aims to delight audiences with their summer production of “Occupation Murder,” written by Billy St. John and produced in cooperation with Eldridge Plays and Musicals.

“We are thrilled to bring back the murder mystery, audience participation production,” said Producer/Director Frann Carnivele.

“During the show, 10 members of the audience will be asked to be part of the murder mystery while the entire audience will be asked take a guess to point out the murderer,” explained Carnivele. “We have been rehearsing for six weeks and, since the show allows for ad libbing, it makes for a new, fun and more entertaining experience each time it is performed.”

The audience participation murder mystery centers around the TV quiz show “It’s A Living!” and the murder of the show’s sponsor.

Performances will be July 18 and 19 at the Orland Park Civic Center, 14750 Ravinia Avenue, where audience members will enjoy hors d’oeuvres and dessert as they participate in the performance.

Cost is $25.00 per person (includes hors d'oeuvres & dessert). A cash bar will also be available. Reserved seating may be purchased at the Recreation Administration Office, 14600 S. Ravinia Avenue.
