Panola College's Drama Department will present “A Season to Remember.” The first production is a dinner theatre murder mystery, “Bloody Murder” by Ed Sala. A group of the usual British murder-mystery types gather for a weekend retreat at the sumptuous country estate of the esteemed Lady Somerset. There's the major who served in India; the inebriated, fading actor; the innocent ingénue; the exotic lady in red; the mysterious Chinese gentleman; the rich dowager aunt and her faithful maid and worthless nephew. Suddenly, one of them dies of poison! Well, of course. Oh, what fun! But wait … Her Ladyship refuses to summon the police! She says she won't go through all this, again. All what, again? And why were they all invited here in the first place? Is this actually just another formulaic, all-too-predictable mystery story? Or is it something diabolically … different? Agatha Christie meets Pirandello. Another element of the evening will be Improv performances by the Drama Departments Comedy Troupe.
Performances are September 27 and 28th at 7:00 p.m., dinner served at 5:30 p.m. with a dessert matinee on Sunday, September 29 at 2:15 and the performance at 3:00 p.m. Tickets for the dinner theatre are $18.00 for general admission and $10.00 for Panola Family and Students.
