SKITS cast prepares to deliver full-of-suspense show

Wednesday, April 27, 2016
"The Bold, The Young and The Murdered" SKITS character Jake Strong, played by Morris Nyborg, tries to convince the rest of his fellow soap opera cast members the seriousness of the fact that their director, Oli, played by Deb Lay, has been murdered, but the stage manager, character Kaitlin, played by Faith Johnston, right, stays focused on the script and insists that the play finish that night, so that they can all keep their jobs. Meanwhile, cast members are picked off one-by-one in a complex web of events leaving audience members truly guessing "whodunit." During intermission, audience members will be given the opportunity to guess who the murderer is, and the winner will receive a buy-one-get-one dinner offer to Carmelina's, a new restaurant at Kings River Marina in Viola. Plus, everyone who buys a ticket will find a 10 percent off coupon on the back to use at the restaurant. A dress rehearsal was held Monday night, and the actual performances will be held Friday and Saturday night at 6:30 p.m., and Sunday at 2 p.m. at the United Methodist Church off YY Highway in Shell Knob. Adult tickets are $7 in advance and $9 at the door. Children 12 and under are free. Tickets can be purchased in advance at Shell Knob Chamber of Commerce, Arvest Bank in Shell Knob and Central Crossing Senior Center. For more information, people may call Barb Van Dusen at 417-858-9590 or Kim Przybyl at 418-459-3017. Julia Kilmer@cassvile-democrat.com
