Murder Mystery Evenings – 9th and 10th March

We will soon be holding a couple of ‘Murder Mystery Nights’, in aid of local charities.

They will be held on 9th and 10th March, 7.30pm at the Village Hall.

These evenings provide an opportunity for you to turn detective and solve a crime! You will see a short scene, at the end of which a murder is committed. You will then have an opportunity to question the suspects directly, before a second scene and another round of questioning. Finally, you make your accusations before the solution is revealed. It’s a fun night, so please come and join  us to help us raise money for some good causes.

Tickets cost £8 and are now available from The Lounge in Alvechurch or by emailing ads.alvechurch@gmail.com.

Tea and coffee will be available, please feel free to bring your own booze.

Spring Production – Deadly Nightcap

Our Spring production will be Deadly Nightcap, a thriller by Francis Durbridge.

Murder and mystery abound in this ingenious play with more than its fair share of blind alleys. A greedy husband plots to kill his wife and make it look like suicide. His plans are thwarted, but how and by whom? As Detective Superintendent Cliff Jordan discovers, there are so many possible suspects and motives that the truth is elusive. The London critics said “a night to remember for any fan of mystery, murder and edge of your seat suspense” and “if you enjoy the very best of thrillers, see Deadly Nightcap, it’s the best.”

Performances will be on 26th, 27th and 28th April 2018, 7.30 pm at Alvechurch Village Hall.

Tickets will go on sale in March.

2018 Productions

Our 2018 Spring production will be performed on 26th, 27th & 28th April and our Autumn production will be performed on 29th, 30th November & 1st December. We have not decided on our Spring production yet, but our Autumn one will definitely be one of our legendary pantomimes…. More details will be published on this website soon.

Also, we will be staging a Murder Mystery in the Village Hall on 9th & 10th March in aid of several charities. More details in the New Year.
