CORNWALL, Ontario – The stage is set for a play where everyone is suspect.

The 2013 cast of 'Murder at the Comedy House' presented by Stage Fright Productions.

'Murder at the Casino Royale' is a slick whodunit waiting to be solved from Stage Fright Productions starting in February at Ramada Cornwall.

Professional and budding actors led by homegrown talent Nicholas Merizzi portray a cast of zany characters blinded by the bright lights of nightlife.

There's been a murder, but the show must go on. The plot thickens, as everyone in the room is tasked with solving the case.

“With catchy tunes and a meal to die for, this play within a murder mystery has a lot to offer everyone,” said Merizzi.

As the comedic drama unfolds, guests will be enjoying a delicious taste of live dinner theatre.

Catch the evening show of 'Murder at the Casino Royale' on Feb. 7, 8, 14, and 15 for $45. Doors open at 6 p.m. with cocktail hour, followed by a buffet dinner at 7 p.m. before the show kicks off at 8 p.m.

Alternatively, on Sunday, Feb. 9 and Feb. 16, a matinée show priced at $35 will start with a cash bar at 11 a.m. trailed by the opening of the first act at 11:30 a.m. A buffet brunch will be served at noon.

Each show is scheduled for four hours.

"Last year, we were told that it was one of the best shows they (Ramada Cornwall) have ever had," said Runions, author of the play and event organizer.

Reserve your tickets by calling Ramada Cornwall at (613) 933-8000 or pick them up at their front lobby located at 805 Brookdale Avenue.

    Dream Maker Young People's theatre has been around for over 24 years. The past few years we have had to push our Christmas show back a week because another group booked the theatre where we normally do shows. We took over for Cow Patti Theatre in February at the same time that they had for years and now we use the same spot (time) that they had. We asked Ramada if they would let us change the time, they said NO! So Marie Willard (not your real name) you obviously don't know what you are talking about. Dennis Jaciw (the film making joke of our community) when are you actually going to do something. You try to pass stock footage off as your own. (busted) I even know the company where you ordered your stock footage from. As far as the children you are talking about (age 19 to 54) The youngest member just taped a show for PBS, others have been on TV shows/movies, worked at the Upper Canada Playhouse and other pro theatres.. The list goes on. As far as all the put downs by any other arts group. Why are you afraid of a young peoples theatre group.

    Yes I agree....they make it look like some major production, however, these are little kids performing a play, and you will not get a "Grade-A" production quality out of this.

    I saw David Runion's production of The Wizard of Oz with my family in December and it was just terrible. This one is likely to be just as bad. And once again he deliberately scheduled his show to compete with Seaway Valley's big musical, just like he did last year. Why does he have so much spite toward his peers to do a thing like that? I'm saving my money and seeing Les Miserables instead.
