Director Sherri Metz will present "A Party to Murder" by Marcia Kash & Douglas E. Hughes in October and she needs a murderous dose of local talent! Three men and three women are needed for the show The Oxford Press says is "Enough to turn Dame Agatha green with envy."!

Six people have come in secret on Halloween to play a murder mystery game at a rustic island cottage. Invited by writer Charles Prince, they appear set for a weekend of fun until ghosts from the past begin to haunt the proceedings and it becomes clear that all is not as it seems. The game takes on a sinister dimension when guests begin to die and the remaining players realize that they are playing for their lives. Tension rises. Secret passageways, incriminating letters, hidden compartments, bodies in the window seat and a twenty five year old unsolved mystery twist and turn toward the unexpected and terrifying conclusion.
