QuantUM Entertainment presents murder mystery dinner show
Debra Ginsberg, a professional director and actors 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; however, 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 the cast members as they walk among the tables. The actors have permission to take liberties with the script and use it only as an outline, resulting in a highly improvisational show.
The show runs from Nov. 19 through 23, and all shows begin 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.
