A Wing And A Prayer

A Wing And A Prayer

This winter the Upstage Players are presenting a dinner theatre where they will perform the audience participation mystery "A Wing And A Prayer."

Here's the story: Rev. Longacre is gathering a small group of church members together at a potluck supper to broach the subject of starting a building fund. Duty-bound Hazel arrives first to set up everything and tell the Reverend she hasn't yet found out who's been sending him anonymous love letters. Several others arrive including Annie, the church secretary who is hiding something under her coat, and Lillian, the richest woman in town who seldom attends Sunday services. Before Rev. Longacre is able to give his two-hundred-plus reasons for the drive, Lillian startles everyone by announcing she is giving the church $1.5 million in jewelry so there won't even need to be a fund drive. All are stunned. But when Lillian's purse is retrieved from the cloakroom, it is empty of jewels. Well-versed from reading so many mystery novels, Rev. Longacre begins an investigation that leads his church members - and your audience! - to reveal the culprit.

Since the show is set at a church, we will be performing at Gethsemane Lutheran Church in Upsala.

Performances will be on two Saturday evenings - January 28 and February 4.

Tickets will be made available in the next few weeks.
