They took the cake – The Mafioso Murders a huge success


Andrea Molberg

Under the direction of Susan Sterling, Community Circle Players (CCP) brought seven performances of The Mafioso Murders to sold out crowds in SaddleBrooke One’s Vistas and SaddleBrooke TWO’s Ballroom. The hilarious dinner theatre mystery was well received, and producer Shawne Cryderman praised the professional food and beverage staff of both HOAs for all their help.

With the support of assistant director Carol Merlini’s attention to detail, everyone worked to make the production letter perfect. Performers rehearsed for three months, almost daily the last month, for this all-volunteer production. Sets and props, like the godfather’s birthday cake, were procured through donations from friends and family or created by cast and crew. What a treat!
