You Have The Right To Remain Dead

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.
