The first dinner mystery production of SaddleBrooke’s new theatre company, Community Circle Players, was a huge success so now the mystery is what’s next?

Strong ticket demand for the Eat Drink and Be Deadly! February 2017 performances required the originally planned four-night run to be extended. A performance was added at both HOA 1 and HOA 2 and almost 900 attended the dinner mystery and now co-founders Susan Sterling and Shawne Cryderman have started to plan for next year.

The crowds said, “Please do more plays of this nature – drink, eat and guess who dun it,” so Susan Sterling will spend all summer pouring over possible scripts with Shawne Cryderman who directed and co-produced CCP’s first production. Shawne will take the role of producer next year while Susan directs with Carol Merlini as her assistant and Tim Morsani as Chief Financial Officer.

Start planning ahead to attend the 2018 dinner theater performances in SaddleBrooke next April. Stay tuned for audition dates and more clues about the mystery!
