The Frederic Remington Art Museum will once again open its doors for a fun, interactive murder mystery performance on Saturday, May 21 featuring members of the well-known North Country theatre troupe The Grasse River Players.
The Remington is partnering with The Grasse River Players to present “Murder in the Library” written and directed by Derrick Conway. Advance tickets are recommended for this extraordinary event to be held at the Frederic Remington Art Museum, at 303 Washington St., Ogdensburg. The performance begins at 6 p.m.
The production involves a group of townspeople who are invited to a public meeting at the local library to discuss a proposed renovation and modernization of the library. The meeting takes an unexpected turn and guests will need to figure out who is responsible. Guests will have the opportunity to mingle with the characters over cocktails and finger foods, ask them questions, and try to guess the culprit from among them. Everyone will be asked to submit their guesses on a paper ballot. At the end of the evening, the story will be resolved. A drawing will be held from among the winning entries, and one super sleuth will receive a mystery prize.
This year's cast includes John Berbrich as Jack Johnson, an ex-NYC cabbie and amateur novelist; Dave Crowell as William Hartford, Mayor; Derrick Conway as Frank Connors, the local sheriff; Emily Fecketter as Sally Stream, aide to the mayor; Heather Liebfred as Wanda Pratt, head librarian; Jen Blewett as Tanya Masters, property developer and new to town Joe Easter as Eliot Fields, owner of the library.
The night will include delicious food prepared by Cam's Catering. There will be a cash bar provided by Hosmer's Marina.
