QuantUM presents murder mystery dinner
Debra Ginsberg, a professional director and actor, is working with UM students on Who Killed The Director? a murder mystery dinner theater show written by Dick Laffin. QuantUM Entertainment, a student-run independent production company producing film and theater for the Coral Gables campus and surrounding community, is producing the play. The organization has over 700 members and is a part of Hurricane Productions.
The central character of the show is Cecil B. DePille, who is casting his next play. Various characters audition including Cecil’s lover and a gangster’s mistress. Cecil’s wife and her lover, DePille’s best friend, secretly look on. Cecil decides on a young woman who needs the job, but the gangster threatens him into casting his mistress. Everyone becomes a suspect when the director is found murdered.
The audience solves the crime by interviewing cast members as they walk among the tables. The actors have permission to take liberties with the script, resulting in a highly improvisational show.
The show runs Nov. 19 through Nov. 23 with all shows at 7:30 p.m. Tickets can be purchased in the UC Breezeway Monday through Friday from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. or by calling 305-284-6399. Tickets are $25 for VIP seating, $20 for adults and $15 for UM students and include a three course Italian dinner.
