Carmichael's Chautauqua Playhouse announces the third show of its 32nd season. THE MURDER ROOM, by Jack Sharkey, opens December 5 at the Playhouse. The show will run on Fridays and Saturdays at 8:00 p.m. and Sundays at 2:00 p.m. through January 25th, with a brief break during Christmas and New Year’s weekends. All performances will be held at the Chautauqua Playhouse, 5325 Engle Road in the La Sierra Community Center in Carmichael. Admission is $17 general and $15 students, seniors, children and SARTA members.

THE MURDER ROOM is a zany spoof of British mysteries. There are secret chambers, panels and trap lids galore that are operated by ridiculous contrivances - a grand mixture of Agatha Christie, Monty Python and Abbott and Costello. The quick, smart, well-timed dialogue, combined with hilarious situations and physical antics, make this high, mad melodrama a fun night at the theater. Guaranteed to provide many laughs!

The production is directed by Paul Fearn and features Bob Nannini and Sara Hanson. Set design is by Rodger Hoopman, with lighting by Ross Aldrich. Costumes are by Eileen Beaver.

The Chautauqua Playhouse is at 5325 ENGLE ROAD, CARMICHAEL, CA 95608. For tickets and additional information call (916) 489-7529 (PLAY). Information and tickets are also available through the Chautauqua Playhouse website. Click the title of this post for details.
