Eat, Drink and Be Murdered: Interactive dinner theatre production of Old West Melodrama Friday, May 4 through Saturday, May 19

 Old West Melodramais inviting you to Grandma Rose’s 80thbirthday party – and you’re guaranteed to have a perfect seat to watch the sparks start to fly at this interactive dinner theatre production. 

 

The show, “Eat, Drink and Be Murdered,” by Tony Schwartz and Marylou Ambrose,opens on Friday, May 4 and performances continue Friday and Saturday evenings through Saturday, May 19.

 

The play will be held at Puffabelly’s Depot Restaurant, 100 Main St. in Spring, with dinner and a pre-show starting at 7 p.m. Purchasing dinner is required to attend the show. The melodrama begins at 8 p.m.

 

The plot centers on some family history. Rose O’Riley McFadden gave her family’s secret whiskey recipe to her husband, Finian McFadden. They built a dis­tillery and turned Wild Irish Rose Whiskey into one of the top-selling brands in the world. 

 

Unfortunately, an old family feud between the McFaddens and the O’Rileys only returned to the surface with the success of the whiskey brand. The McFaddens got filthy rich, while the O’Rileys were forced to work for them at the distillery, as it was the only option for employment in town. 

 

When Finian McFadden died tragically after falling into a vat of whiskey, his son Conor took over running the distillery -- but not with absolute control. 

 

After all, when Rose gave her husband the O’Riley family recipe, she purposely left out one ingredient as an “insurance policy.” Only she knows what that ingredient is -- and every day, she goes to the distillery and adds it to the mix. 

 

Nobody’s fool, Rose realized Finian married her for the recipe and didn’t trust him. She hoped when Conor took over the business he’d make the O’Rileys partners and end the feud. Conor, however, turned out to be a chip off the old McFadden block, a real O’Riley hater. 

 

Audience members will wonder, with Rose’s failing health and mind, what will happen to the family business.      

“Suppose she dies before revealing the secret ingredient,” producer Jeannine Colesaid. “Then it could be curtains for Wild Irish Rose Whiskey, the McFadden empire, and the O’Riley’s hopes of regaining what they feel is rightfully theirs.”

 

Old West Melodrama will transport its audience to a heated birthday party, where the McFaddens and the O’Rileys are stuck in one room together. 

 

“That’s a lot of hatred under one roof,” Cole said. “Will this family reunion of two feuding families turn deadly? Come find out for yourself.”

  

The dinner theatre is an interactive experience – and audience participation are encouraged. 

 

Gift certificates are available. Tickets may be reserved by emailing reservations@oldwestmelodrama.comor calling 713-364-9190. 

 

Old West Melodrama, stationed at 100 Main Street in Old Town Spring, is the only performing group in the greater Houston area that offers melodramas and murder mystery dinner shows year round. 


The troupe, founded by Joe Cole, is comprised of experienced actors and performers who enjoy interacting with the audience. To purchase tickets or for more information, call 713-364-9190, email reservations@oldwestmelodrama.com or visit www.oldwestmelodrama.com.

WordSmyth Theater Presents: TEACH by Donna Hoke

Does gender affect the way we view teacher-student relationships? Playwright Donna Hoke poses this question and many more in TEACH, a gender fluid story of questionable tension-building moments set in a modern-day high school.


Curious minds can join Wordsmyth Theater Company for a reading of the play that promises to unpack issues of gender politics, bullying, favoritism, and student-teacher flirtation. Admission is FREE.


“ Teach is an utterly fascinating and fresh take on teacher-student sexual harassment and power dynamics in the classroom and the world of academia. Hoke kept me on the edge of my seat throughout the play and I found my opinion on the characters and situation shifting again and again. The gender fluid construct of the play is a stroke of genius and something I’m now dying to see on stage. ”

–Stephanie Alison Walker




“ I keep thinking of TEACH as a Rubik’s Cube. Hoke picks up a compelling social issue and examines it from every angle, even taking it apart and showing us what’s inside. Gender-fluid casting compels audience members to determine whether there’s a scenario in which a teacher-student flirtation is more understandable and even acceptable. In the end, everyone is a little bit guilty (some more than others), which is infinitely more interesting and realistic. Hoke never goes for the easy answers, leaving us to our = own uneasy conclusions. ”

MATCH-Midtown Arts and Theater Center Houston

United States
US
Telephone:
713-325-5372
Hours:

7 am to 2 am Monday through Sunday

Open since October of 2015, MATCH was born of a desire to serve the broad spectrum of Houston's cultural arts organizations by providing a place where small to mid-sized cultural groups and individual artists could work in state-of-the-art facilities just like their more prominent and well-funded colleagues. With annual support from Houston First, MATCH is able to provide performance space, rehearsal space, exhibition and office space at rates nearly any artist or group can afford. 


And there are a variety of spaces to choose from. Matchbox 1 is a small black box with a seating capacity of 90 that can also serve as a small gallery. Temporary risers and chairs can be configured as endstage, thrust or in the round. Matchbox 2 is the dance space with a permanent dance floor and seating for 159. Matchbox 3 is a large black box with a seating capacity of 175 that can also be configured in a variety of ways. Matchbox 4 is a more conventional proscenium space with fixed seating for 323. All four Matchboxes are served by a central Breezeway that runs from the Box Office and Cafe on Main Street to the Bus drop-off on Travis Street and acts as the lobby for all 4.

Across the Breezeway from Matchbox 4 is a 3000 square foot gallery. Adjacent to the Gallery in the South Building is a 60 foot wide rehearsal hall that can be used as one room or divided into thirds. Above the Gallery and the Rehearsal Hall are offices and cubicles that are available for rent to artists and arts groups.
