Claudette (Nicole Myra) and Jennifer Watson (Sonya Pineo) realize they both grabbed hold of Foster Holmes (Bob Cook), whom they’ve both taken a liking to, instead of the suspected killer when the lights flickered. 

It’s easy to assume no one would be daft enough to commit murder at a gathering of the International Association of Mystery Solvers.

A cast of eight dinner theatre performers kept their audience guessing until the final act when a dinner theatre production of Robert LaVohn’s Murder At The Banquet, directed by Bryen Stoddard, was hosted at the Hantsport Fire Hall in November.

When the host of the party is found dead at the podium, the honoured guests must put their detective skills to work to find the killer. The problem is, the killer is in their midst — and the host was not the only target.
