Tickets ($15/Adults; $13/Seniors&Students; $8/Children) will be available for purchase at the door with cash, check or credit card.
Harry’s back! Harry Monday, that Sam Spade wannabe in the trench coat and gumshoes, has received an anonymous tip about a murder that’s taken place …and he is hot to solve the case.”
Mary Beth Topf directs the West Allis Players production of the third in a series of murder mystery plays by Pat Cook: Murder’s Bad, But Monday Can Kill You! Five performances will take place October 4-13 with performances at 7:30pm on Fridays and Saturdays, October 4, 5, 11, 12, and a 2:00pm matinee on Sunday, October 13. All performances will take place at West Allis Central Auditorium, 8516 W. Lincoln Avenue.
“This wise-cracking whodunit is a throwback to the crime-solving, detective dramas from days of old,” offers Topf, the play’s Director. “It will have audiences guessing and laughing out loud, until Harry’s goose is fully cooked.”
Harry realizes he will have a long, hard time trying to find the killer because the patients change personalities regularly and he never knows when someone is lying or telling the truth. In the meantime, he has no idea who hired him to close the case, just another test for him to overcome.
“Clues are falling like cigarettes in the boys’ bathroom,” says Harry as he soon finds himself committed—and not just to the case. Does Harry know what he is doing? Who knows? Is he over his head? Of course!
“This is the third Harry Monday play that I have directed for West Allis Players, of a series of five,” adds Topf. “This show is fun and silly. What I hope for the audience is that they will be entertained; that they come out laughing and feeling good because they’ve had an evening or afternoon of pure fun and silly entertainment.“
Murder’s Bad, But Monday Can Kill You! runs Fridays and Saturdays, October 4, 5, 11, 12 at 7:30pm. A matinee performance will be held at 2:00pm on Sunday, October 13. All performances are at West Allis Central Auditorium, 8516 W. Lincoln Avenue.
Tickets ($15/Adults; $13/Seniors&Students; $8/Children) will be available for purchase at the door with cash, check or credit card. They can also be purchased online at www.westallisplayers.org, where additional information is available.
