CAST wants the audience to help solve the murder mystery in “The Musical Comedy Murders of 1940.” The production starts at 6 p.m. Friday-Saturday, July 26-27, and Thursday-Saturday, July 29-31, with a special lunch presentation at 12:30 p.m. Sunday, July 25.

  “The Musical Comedy Murders of 1940.”   Broadway-bred bombast and beauty! Revolving doors… Secret passageways... A mysterious figure… All add to the comic mayhem that takes place inside the new CAST Theatre as we present “The Musical Comedy Murders of 1940.”
   This production starts at 6 p.m. Friday-Saturday, July 26-27, and Thursday-Saturday, July 29-31, with a special lunch presentation at 12:30 p.m. Sunday, July 25.
   All tickets are $45 per person and feature a catered meal by Venezia’s Garden at CAST’s
   new home, 920 Nichols, in Bay City.
   Actors portray actors, directors, singers, and writers – all of whom may be in danger from the “Stage Door Slasher.”
   A New York police detective tries to sort out the mystery-in-a-mansion.
   Only the audience is aware of some of the secrets – but you can’t tell!
   In the spirit of mystery movies from the 1940s, the play begins, like so many good stories, “on a dark and stormy night.”
   If you miss the old black and white mystery movies with Bob Hope and his contemporaries, this is a show for you.
   If you’ve never heard of those movies, this is a show for you!
   And laugh as onstage actors move from light into darkness trying to stay alive as the mystery unfolds.
   Veteran director Gena Lea Smith joins new CAST director Kevin Knox as they bring together nearly a dozen local actors to present this summer comedy.
   This production features new and old CAST faces including Stacey Horton, Tammy Russell, Jordan Pena, Steven Reis, Ayden Horton, Silas Robles, Lydia Weaver, Wyatt Fitzgerald, Andrea Ramirez, Jeff Sabedra, and Jaycie Franz.
   Presented to the community by CAST and Humphries Dental.
