Let’s Murder Marsha!

Bailey Coleman and Douglas Anderson

A happy housewife named Marsha Gilmore, hopelessly addicted to reading murder mysteries, overhears her loving husband, Tobias, discussing her upcoming birthday surprise with an interior decorator, Persis Devore.  To her ears, though, it sounds like they are planning to murder her!  With the assistance of her next door neighbor, Virgil Baxter, she tries to turn the tables on them with a poisoned potion.  When her own mother, Lynette Thoren, shows up for her birthday a day early, Marsha thinks she is in on the  diabolical scheme.  When her maid’s date, Ben Quade, a policeman, shows up to take the maid, Bianca, out, Marsha thinks he is on to her poisoning attempt.

Well, finally, just when you would think all this will be cleared up, Marsha’s intended victims discover what she has supposed, and decide to teach her a lesson by actually pretending to be murderers.  This is a terrific show for family audiences who like their comedy broad, fast and nonstop.

The cast includes Samantha DeBlois (Marsha Gilmore), Bryant Daugherty (Tobias Gilmore), Madisyn Weiss (Persis Devore), Douglas Anderson (Virgil Baxter), Rylea Trammell (Bianca), Sydney Huff (Lynette Thoren), and Chris Boyd (Ben Quade).
