Calling All Actors!

The Golden Triangle Mystery Dinner Theatre presents “Murder at the Tonylou Awards.” This is an audience-participation murder mystery-comedy by Tony Schwartz and Marylou Ambrose. It will be produced by special arrangement with The Lakeside Players, Tafton, PA. The one-time performance is scheduled for Saturday, October 17, 2015, immediately following the PCB Conference and Convention Banquet.


The Plot:

During a live broadcast of the Tonylou Awards, someone is mysteriously murdered. Of course, as the evening unfolds, we learn that each cast member has a motive for murder. It’s the job of the audience to figure out “who-done-it.”


This GTCB-sponsored production will be a one-of-a-kind event that you won’t want to miss. What will make it so unique is our cast. All actors will be members of the PA Council of the Blind. So, if you’ve already been bitten by the acting bug, or if you’ve only dreamed of being in theatre, this may be your opportunity to shine. Consider this our Call for Auditions.
