“Sometimes the hardest & funniest part of rehearsing for a show is staying alive!” Meet a cast of has-been actors planning to revive their careers in “Drop Dead!,” a potboiler murder mystery directed by “Wonder Child of the Broadway Stage” Victor Le Pewe (a psychotic eye twitching megalomaniac). At the dress rehearsal the set falls, props break, and the producer & an actor are murdered. During the opening night performance, the murders continue. The remaining thespians must save the show and their careers, solve the mystery & manage to stay alive for curtain calls. Written by Billy Van Zandt & Jane Milmore, Drop Dead is co-directed by Debby Myers & Shannon Banter. Dinner theater is April 27. Show dates are April 28-30, May 5-7.
