Bigs plans a Murder Mystery Dinner Theater

Posted at 1:02 PM, Jul 06, 2018

"Murder at the Pocono Royale Casino!" will be held next month to benefit Big Brothers Big Sisters.

The Murder Mystery Dinner Theatre spoofs the movie "Casablanca" and the American Dream of winning the jackpot. The comedy-murder mystery dinner theater takes place at Rick’s club, the first legal gambling casino in the Poconos. Rick dreams of striking it rich – then two crafty Native Americans try to claim the land and his gold-digging ex-wife Lola shows up. Throw in a two-faced lawyer, an Australian Croc Chaser with bad luck, and two little old ladies on a gambling mission, and "making a killing" takes on a whole new meaning. 

This year’s cast is an impressive line-up of old & new faces to the BBBS Murder Mystery Stage: 

  • Rick: Miguel Ochoa 
  • Candy: Surprise Guest! 
  • Croc Chaser: Skip Woods 
  • Dudley Wadsworth III: Brent Bourque 
  • Stella Portabella: Amy Brown 
  • Carmella Portabella: Brooklyn Woods 
  • Chief Wooden Nickel: Bruce Cohen/ Mitch Barry 
  • Princess Wanna Wampum: Cindy Hebert 
  • Lola: Lexi Langlois 

The performances are set for Friday, August 3rd & Saturday, August 4th, 2018 at the Acadiana Center for the Arts; 101 W. Vermillion Street.

Tickets can be purchased at General Admission Tickets are $100, VIP Tickets are $125 and a Table of 8 can be purchased for $700. Tickets include a Murder Mystery Theatre performance and a 3-course meal. The event will also include a Live & Silent Auction, cash
