Mystery play

RUMFORD – Two local playwrights, Duane Glover of Rumford and Nancy O. DeMilner of Peru, have conspired to write a mystery dinner theater, “The Award Show.” It’s a spoof on award shows in general wrapped up in a murder mystery played out during dinner.

Everyone will be part of show business for the night and anyone could win a award. The audience gets to solve the murder and vote for the big award of the evening, “The Best Picture.”

The duo originally wrote “The Award Show” as a writing job for the Nashoba Community Theatre in Massachusetts, but they were so pleased with the results of the script (and the successful run in Nashoba) that they have teamed up with Teena’s Restaurant to do the show in Rumford on Thursday, Friday and Saturday, Feb. 23, 24 and 25.

Tickets are $25 a person for dinner and show and are on sale at Scrapper’s Domaine on Canal Street. For more information, call DeMilner at 562-7735.
