Mystery and mayhem on the menu at IVT

Indian Valley Theatre is preparing for its annual dinner theater in February. This year the group will present Ken Ludwig’s murder-mystery “Postmortem.”

“Postmortem” is a classic example of the whodunit genre. It has all the elements we’ve come to love and expect: devious characters, witty dialogue, brain-teasing plot twisters, glamour, dark secrets, a little bit of romance, a little bit of scandal and a whole lot of suspense. It is based on the somewhat strange life of William Gillette, one of the most popular American actors of the early 20th century, who pioneered the role of Sherlock Holmes on the stage. The story takes place at the famed Gillette Castle in Connecticut.

William Gillette will be played by Tom Merkel of Sandwich, Bobby Carlyle is played by Chuck Gebbia of Sandwich, May Dison is played by Kristy Lehner of Lake Holiday, Marian Barrett is played by Deb Merkel of Sandwich, Leo Barrett is played by Matt Frantzen of Sandwich, Gina Palmer will play Louise Parradine and Michele Wade will play Lilly Warner.

Performances for Postmortem are Feb. 22 through 24 at the Fox Valley Older Adults Center in Sandwich. Tickets cost $26 and include a meal catered by Alessandria’s of Sandwich and the show. There will be a cash bar.

Visit www.indianvalleytheatre.com or call the producer, Christine Roe, at 630-631-2323. Reservations are due by Feb. 15.
