Fortunes are told, secrets may be revealed, and a murder takes place in The Specter at the Seance: The Spirit's Revenge, which the Whodunnit Murder Mystery Theater will present starting this weekend.
The Specter at the Seance: The Spirit's Revenge is to happen each Saturday from May 10-June 21 (except for May 24, for which there is no show) at 7 p.m. each night. All shows are to go on at the Hilton Garden Inn, located at 2735 Crittenden Drive in Louisville.
Tickets for each show, which includes the show, dinner, tax, and gratuity, are $45.50 per person. Reservations are required and can be made by calling 502-426-7100. Dinner choices must also be made over the phone and include baked salmon, beef stroganoff, and vegetable Wellington. More information on the show can be found at the Whodunnit website.
Usually, when one goes to have their fortune told, their future is revealed. However, in The Specter at the Seance: The Spirit's Revenge, when a wealthy man asks a fortune teller to tell his future, he finds out he doesn't actually have one. Who wants him murdered? What other secrets are there? Also, who is that mysterious guest?
Audience members, while they enjoy their salads, entrees, or deserts, will have a chance to get those questions, among others, answered. In between scenes, the suspects will walk among the tables and answer those questions. They will be truthful, or they will evade the question, but they cannot lie. They only time they are permitted to lie is when they are asked if they committed the murder. That answer will be no.
Graham Bell created the production, which Alphaeus Green directed. The cast includes Erica Goldsmith, JD Green, Jeff McQueen, Beth Olliges, Robert Thompson, and Niles Welch.
The Specter at the Seance: The Spirit's Revenge is the last of Whodunnit's 2013-14 season. Auditions for the 2014-15 season will take place on July 20 at the Hilton Garden Inn.
