Much Ado About Murder

On April 1st, all the ingredients of a deliciously-frightening murder mystery --lightning, thunder, weird sounds, screams in the dark--came together for the performance of "Much Ado About Murder," directed by facilitator JoAn Dilweg.

This play, presented by NKA actor-members, added the fun of the audience's participation in solving the crime.
Diane Bilyeu (above) played the role of "Mr. Hawker," a sinister master of ceremonies who tells the audience--using a series of flashbacks--about the events surrounding the murder.
During an intermission, the audience was invited to view the clue-rich scene of the crime.
Near the end of Act II, Mr. Hawker gave the audience a chance to question the characters.
Carol Nelson (above right) played "Lillian De Monde," an aging actress with information about the crime.
A good time was had by all...excepting the victim, of course!
