Gr 7-12Teen CampAll I Really Need to Know I Learned by Being in a Bad Murder MysteryMon-Fri9:30am-2:30pm6/21-7/2Look out, a band of lovable yet impossibly inept thespians are onstage taking on the genre that will not die—the murder mystery! Follow along—if you dare—as our 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?! Chaos rules the day as time is running out for cast and crew to sort out this mess. LWUMCBuddy ToddMore Info
