Comedic Murder Mystery Opens at Mary T. Christian Auditorium September 12

Published: September 8, 2008

Thomas Nelson Community College’s Mary T. Christian Auditorium will be the site of a hilarious play called “Drop Dead” beginning Friday Sept. 12 with an 8 p.m. performance. Brought to audiences by Iron Street Productions, the play is scheduled to run through Sept. 21 with performances starting at 3 p.m. on Sept. 14 and Sept. 21.  Other performances begin at 8 p.m.

This uproariously funny play tells the tale of a cast of has-been actors that are trying to revive their careers in a production called “Drop Dead!” a potboiler murder mystery directed by “Wonder Child of the Broadway Stage” Victor Le Pewe (a psychotic eye twitching megalomaniac). The group’s dress rehearsal kicks off a chain of events that are sure to keep audiences entertained — the set falls, props break, and the producer and an actor are murdered. During the opening night performance, the murders continue and as things progress the remaining thespians must save the show, their careers, solve the mystery and stay alive for curtain calls!

The play is open to the public with tickets available by advance purchase only at Iron Street Productions’ ISP ticket agent located at Going Postal, 1188 Big Bethel Rd. (Hampton Woods Plaza) or online at Or, to reserve tickets, call 757-224-8937. Tickets are $17 for general admission and $15 for senior/student/military. Groups of 12 or more may purchase tickets at $10 per person.

This opening night marks Iron Street’s second theatrical season. A percentage of ticket proceeds will be donated to EduStar Academy of Performing Arts located in Hampton, Virginia. The academy provides instruction in music, dance and the dramatic arts.
