Murder in Hollywood: The Case of the Boa Constrictor finds its murder scene in a producer's mansion during the golden age of Hollywood. The beautiful and talented actress Sandra Townsend has mysteriously been killed, and those in attendance must figure out who did it.
The suspects will begin in scripted performance, where clues and the murder will take place. Afterwards, the suspects will move through the audience. Audience members, in an attempt to gather more clues, can ask the suspects anything related to the case. In response, the suspects will answer truthfully or evade the question.
Cast members for Murder in Hollywood include Penny Brill, Peter Allen Clark, Erica Goldsmith, A.J. Green, John Lina, Jeff McQueen, and Makayla Staudenheimer. Jane Mattingly directed the production. Teresa Wentzel wrote the production and served as assistant director.
