Pegasus Theatre kicks off its 29th season with Rehearsal for Murder!, another entry in the popular Living Black & White™ series of plays that chronicle the adventures of Harry Hunsacker, would-be actor turned would-be detective; Nigel Grouse, Harry's paid-by-the-hour assistant and friend; and Lt. Foster of the real police.
In this new play, the year is 1946. Lt. Foster has inherited a guest inn in the Green Mountains of Vermont currently run by Mrs. Holmes (the housekeeper) and Seth Murdock (the groundskeeper.) The guest inn is hosting famed writer/director Adrian Garson and a troupe of actors in rehearsal for a new Broadway play away from the scrutiny of the Manhattan theatre critics. When one of the actors, leading man Allen Simpson, falls to his death from Eagle Point, Lt. Foster suspects foul play, but before he can even unpack, Harry Hunsacker and Nigel Grouse arrive to gum up the works. Will the murder be solved before Lt. Foster loses his sanity?
The New Year's Eve show is $50 per ticket, which includes cake and champagne in the lobby after the show.
