Was there indeed a murder……if so, who dun it?
Members of the Rojales Pantomime Group were asked by the Royal British Legion to entertain their guests by performing a Murder Mystery play at the Phoenix Nights Bar and Restaurant in San Miguel. Not having done this before this was definitely a mystery to the nine cast and crew but they rose to the challenge….. a script was written, parts were chosen and rehearsals began around Joan’s dining table!
Around eighty people attended the evening’s performance, some of whom dressed for the part as different famous sleuths (they were deadly serious). After a delicious meal, the scene was set and the plot unfolded yielding various clues throughout the play.
Before the conclusion D.I. Holmes interviewed all the suspects to give the audience the chance to decide who, in their opinion, was the murderer if, in fact, a murder had been committed! Everyone was asked to fill in a murder form indicating their chosen suspect, which created lots of speculation and discussions.
The correct answers were then sealed in an evidence bag and, after the conclusion had been played out, naming and shaming the murderer, the name of Wendy Cottom was picked out to win a special prize.
An entertaining night was had by all, not least of all by the cast and crew, and most importantly, the Royal British Legion raised over 400 euro for the poppy appeal.
The Rojales Pantomime Group ‘s last pantomime in January, Camelot The Panto, was a roaring success and their next chosen pantomime is Treasure Island which should be lots of fun.
