NINE @ Marion Palace Theatre
Mar 25 @ 3:00 pm – 5:00 pm

Join us for an uplifting and joyous Easter Celebration when NINE (No Instruments Needed Ever) takes the historic Marion Palace Theatre stage!

The a capella singing group is comprised of ERIC KLENZMAN, SCOTT FORRY, TITUS RITCHEY, ERIC MOSLEY, LUKE HENRY, SCOTT RUTH, WES PETERS, MATT CRAYCRAFT, STEVE DEWEBER, and MATT HOLSINGER. Using only their voices to create a captivating sound, this group of men entertains listeners with a spiritual, gospel collection and pure and simple Gaither-style songs.

NINE first introduced their vocal harmonies to the public during Christmas at the Palace in 2011, and immediately audiences fell in love with the fun-loving group of guys. Popular demand brought the group back to the stage in 2012 and 2013 with fresh holiday acts. The men went on to perform a full scale show for an enthusiastic full house at the Palace in 2014. Described as endearing entertainers, NINE’s performances radiate with humor, friendship and their devotion to God.

You Have The Right To Remain Dead @ Marion Palace Theatre
Apr 6 @ 6:30 pm – 8:30 pm

Mystery. Murder. And, lots of surprises and laughs abound in the Palace’s annual Dinner Theatre held in the May Pavilion.

Following a catered buffet dinner, “YOU HAVE THE RIGHT TO REMAIN DEAD” narrator, Harnell Chesterton, will take the audience to visit a small community theatre group staging a play set in the Deep South….and the scene of the crime. Here you’ll meet Fat Daddy, a rich but vindictive southern gentleman with an equally conniving and scheming family: Sweet Mama, Daddy’s pandering wife; Hyacinth, the daughter who’s always cleaning the family firearms; Earl the worm and his overly amorous wife, Savannah; and Clete, the sullen handyman who, for some reason, is in the will? But, did a member of the cast commit the murder—or did someone in the audience?

Twists, turns and a fast-paced dialogue will keep the audience guessing “whodunnit” until the last clue is dropped.

Directed by Margaret Bowman. Reserved Seating $40.
