The play, which is scheduled to take center stage at 7 p.m. Friday and Saturday and 3 p.m. Sunday, will be at Augusta Jewish Community Center, 898 Weinberger Way in Evans. Admission is $30 for the 7 p.m. Friday and Saturday dinner performances and $15 for the 3 p.m. Sunday performance.
"It's an interactive murder mystery," Fred Elser, the play's director, said about the play, which will give audience members a chance to help solve the case and win a prize.
Paying homage to Humphrey Bogart's detective and murder-mystery movies, Elser said, the play, which is by David Landau, is filled with murder, mayhem, humor, musical interludes and "classic characters."
"You name it and we got it," he said.
