APAC Mystery Theatre Event
APAC PRESENTS MYSTERY THEATRE EVENT AT GERTRUDE'S JAZZ BAR
Aloha Performing Arts Company has announced a special fundraiser, a mystery theatre event at Gertrude's Jazz Bar, 75-5699 Alii Drive in Kailua Kona. "Conundrum on the Crackerjack Cruise," a classic interactive whodunit by Nancy Bond, directed by Nicole Gour, will be presented at 7:00 p.m. Sunday, August 13 and Monday, August 14, featuring APAC volunteer actors. Doors open at 6:00 for this evening of fun and mystery, which will include a lip-syncing contest. The main action of the show takes place aboard the luxury cruise liner Grand Jubilation! As guests set sail in their floating palace, they meet some unique and amusing characters. The audience gets actively involved, and are divided up into two teams at the beginning: Stingrays vs. Starfish! Then, after a fabulous evening of schmoozing, singing, and laughter, one of the "passengers" resorts to crime! Who did it? How? Why? Patrons may chat with the actors between the scenes and when they think they have solved the mystery, turn in a ballot and sit back to watch the final act reveal the culprit. Special prizes will be awarded to super sleuths who solve the crime.
Tickets to "Conundrum on the Crackerjack Cruise" are $35 per person, and will be available beginning July 15 online at APAC's website, AlohaTheatre.com, or by phone Tuesdaythrough Friday from 10:00 a.m. until 5:00 p.m. Specialty gourmet food and drink will be available for purchase from Gertrude's exotic menu. Patrons are encouraged to come dressed in their favorite Cruise Ship attire. Numbered Crackerjack boxes will be given out as part of admission, and some lucky patrons will receive mystery door prizes. For more information or to purchase tickets, call 322-9924.
