Final Act Ensemble: Mystery Meets Comedy
Join the Final Act Ensemble (FAE) for old-time fun. The evening begins with a mystery as The Shadow outwits a gang of thugs who’ve been terrorizing poor street vendors in The Blind Beggar Dies. Mystery continues as The Frumples look for a lost boy in a haunted house. Be prepared to laugh after intermission as Molly tries to make her husband, Fibber McGee, “see” that he needs glasses. The evening ends with The Party Line – where you never know what you might overhear! Throughout the evening are announcers with snappy repartee, crazy commercials, and classic songs from the Golden Age of radio.
Mystery Meets Comedy will be presented in the Kate Goldman Theatre.
