Black Gold Productions 12th Annual Melodrama to Help Fight Cancer
Black Gold Productions (BGP) theater troupe has raised more than $230,000 over the last 11 years to help fight cancer while entertaining audiences with its annual, must-see, lighthearted melodramas. All proceeds benefit the American Cancer Society's Relay for Life.
This year's BGP production, "Murder Can Be Habit-Forming," will be performed February 25, 26, 27, and March 4 and 5 at Masonic Temple, 1920 18th Street. Dinner shows perform at 7:00 p.m., with doors opening at 5:30 p.m. for dinner. Sunday matinee (February 27) performs at 2:00 p.m., with doors opening at 1:30 p.m. for the show only. Tickets are $20 for dinner shows and $10 for matinee.
Directed by Stacey Briceno, "Murder Can Be Habit-Forming" starts off with a busload of passengers who are stranded by a blizzard in upstate New York and find refuge in a local convent. One of the passengers is likely to be a serial killer known as the "Mary Murderer," whose victims are all named Mary! With plenty of potential victims named Mary, this light-hearted mystery comedy reveals the very human side of the nuns as they attempt to stay one step ahead of the killer.
