Imagine this: A major motion picture, to be directed by the award-winning David Howard and starring Broadway actress Diane Van Houten and Katie Osbourne from TV's "One Life to Ruin" will be filmed in Sun Valley this fall. Just as the famous director starts auditions for the smaller roles, someone is murdered.

Mark the calendar now and take part in solving this murder mystery at nexStage's Audition for Murder, a supper theatre production and benefit evening on Saturday, Sept. 17.

Guests will start with champagne and hors d'oeuvres in the lobby and mingle with the actors. By dinner, the action will have moved to the stage and someone is dead by dessert time. Guests will witness criminal acts, interrogate the suspects and search for clues.

Once all the clues are discovered, a solution "scene" is played and prizes are awarded for the best solution as well as for the most clueless and most outrageous solutions. Go alone and be paired up with other guests on a six-person team, or get six crimestoppers together and take a table.

Tickets are $100 each, which includes a $50 tax-deductible donation to the nexStage Theatre's annual fund.

Call 726-9124 and talk to Kathy or Patsy Wygle at the nexStage to make a reservation for this one-night event.

The Sun Valley Performing Arts/nexStage Theatre serves as a permanent theatre for local performers, staging performances of music, dance and theater, helping to underwrite nonprofit community events and offering year-round educational performing arts classes.
