Trouble at the Tropicabana

A Murder Mystery Dinner Theatre at Kitsap Golf and Country Club!

Get ready for an evening of fatal fun as Central Stage Theatre unveils a mystery dinner show that spoofs I Love Lucy!  Take a walk down memory lane with Lucy, Ricky, Fred, and Ethel when Central Stage Theatre presents Trouble at the Tropicabana, an audience participation murder mystery by Tony Schwartz and Marylou Ambrose.

What can you expect from an audience participation murder mystery? Fun the minute you walk in the door! Doors open at 6 p.m. when you’ll get a chance to mingle with the cast as they drop hints about themselves and the show and give you a chance to ask questions. At 6:30, you’ll enjoy a delicious dinner, while the cast keeps a low profile. The main show starts after dinner, with desert served during a brief intermission.

The action takes place in Lucy and Ricky’s living room; then switches to Ricky’s club, the Tropicabana. You’ll hear Ricky sing some Latin favorites, see the Cabana girls dance, join in a conga line, and take mambo lessons. Besides Lucy, Ricky, Fred, and Ethel, you’ll meet movie mogul heiress Celia B. DeMilo; Mr. Big, a notorious gangster; and Ricky’s cousin Rosita, an illegal alien. Will Ricky sign a movie contract? Is Celia who she claims to be? Will Lucy and Ethel ruin Ricky’s big chance with another harebrained scheme to get into show business? What’s the escaped convict Mr. Big doing at Ricky’s club? How do the Cabana girls keep those fruit baskets on their heads? And who committed the murder? The murder? That’s right—the murder! Someone will be ruthlessly murdered at the end of the show, and it’s up to you to solve the crime! Prizes will be awarded to the first people to correctly guess both the murderer and the motive.

Check back soon to purchase tickets for an evening of chocolaty mystery and live theatre thrills!
