Gr 7-12Teen CampAll I Really Need to Know I Learned by Being in a Bad Murder MysteryMon-Fri9:30am-2:30pm8/1-8/12Look out, a band of lovable yet impossibly inept thespians are onstage taking on the genre that will not die—the murder mystery in this two-week camp where we put on a non-musical play. In this hilarious script, misguided performers attempt to nail down those devilish British accents, understand what a red herring is, and figure out how to die onstage without looking all gross and stuff. Meanwhile, the director and stage manager, who really love dealing with the egomaniacs and lunatics in the cast, wouldn't really try to murder someone during the murder mystery. Would they?!NOLWUMCBuddy ToddRegister now
