STEUBENVILLE - Mystery Theatre Unlimited will present its new musical-comedy mystery dinner theater production "Dead of the Class" at 7 p.m. April 13 at Froehlich's Classic Corner located at 501 Washington St.
As the Class of 1988 prepares for the 25th reunion, committee members become embroiled in fighting among themselves about old rivalries, missed opportunities and failed romances.
Leading the committee is Coach Krunk (Michael Moran), who recently was released from the Gary Busey School of Anger Management. His former star quarterback Tank Hughes (Bert Furioli) had a disappointing post-high school career, but is determined to relive the glory days. Tank's ex-girlfriend, former head cheerleader, Miss Popularity and Mean Girls Club President Holly Hox (Shannan Noe) also is on the committee, and former valedictorian Marvin Gardens (Ryan Sears) is determined to win her affection, despite having been bullied mercilessly by Tank in high school. Brilliant Olive Boyle (Butch Maxwell) nurses a life-long crush on Marvin.
Tank and Holly challenge one another to turn the "nerds" into swans by the reunion, while Coach Krunk attempts to hold on to his temper and popular 1980s hits are parodied.
"Dead of the Class" is the company's 54th unique show, written by cast members Sears, Furioli and Maxwell. The show is appropriate for all ages.
Mystery theatre performances include audience interaction and the opportunity to solve a murder mystery. Audience members are encouraged to gather clues, talk to the characters and question the survivors. Selected audience members will play small parts during the show.
