Art and life collide for Detectives Jane and Tom as they investigate a murder at a Victorian Mansion where a small group of female mystery writers are having their club meeting. But one of them is found murdered! Did one of the writer's try to kill the competition?

The Uninvited by Tim Kelly
A brother and sister move into a haunted country house and meet the village doctor, the local gossip, a former governess, strange stories, a mysterious woman, the sound of someone weeping and a murder that may or may not have happened 15 years before! Dark secrets are forced to reveal themselves. A classic ghost story in three acts, based on the 1942 book by Dorothy Macardle.
Cast: 6 females, 4 males.

Snow White by Michael Straczynski
This is the traditional story of Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs- with a twist! In this hilarious version, the mirror is inhabited by a Spirit who acts as the Narrator of the story. There is a bumbling Prince who is trying to spy for his father, the King of a nearby kingdom. The deliciously wicked Queen mistakes him for a Huntsman, and orders him to take lovely Snow White to the forest to kill her. There she meets the Seven Dwarfs who are struggling to make a living, not realizing that the Queen has cast a spell on their mine so they cannot find any more gold. But don't worry: it all ends "happily ever after"!
Cast: 3 to 6 females, 1 male, possible attendants, 7 adults or children as dwarves.
Set: The castle, the forest, dwarves' cottage and the mine.
Performance Dates: April 25, 26, 27, May 2, 3, 4, 9, 10.
