On Tuesday, September 20th, auditions were held for How to Host a Murder Mystery Dinner Party.
How to Host a Murder Mystery Dinner Party, performed by the theatre club and directed by Robert Gratzer, is a murder mystery that teaches the audience, quite literally, how to host a murder mystery dinner party. As the play progresses, the members in the dinner party start to be killed off one by one.
The play features audience interaction towards the ending through votes. It will be performed on Friday, December 2nd, and there will be a matinee on Saturday, December 3rd.
Robert Gratzer, who’s been directing theater productions for 13 years, has directed a number of successful plays, such as The Giver in Fall of 2018, which out performed any other play he’s done by a considerable margin. In Gratzer’s eyes, though, “Every show is a success.”
