Death & Acids

It is said that all politics are local, then that means all of the government wanted Travis Rex dead. The departed Mayor of Trout Lake was found dead in a pool of chemicals that were not accidental. Thus is the beginning “Death & Acids” as the Gem*Boy Productions Murder Mystery returns to Saranac Lake Winter Carnival. The show will be staged at the Elks Club on 30 Bloomingdale Ave. on February 2, 9 & 16, 2019. 

Little is know about the murder, but one thing is for sure, it seems everyone in Trout Lake wanted Travis Rex dead and too many people had access to the means. In fact, like the murder weapon - Acids, Travis Rex was referred to as another A-word (arrogant) by everyone who had contact with him.

To his face, he was called T-Rex. Men hated him, women loved to hate him. And children had nightmares about him

The audience will watch as the first act unfolds.  Each character's reason for killing will be revealed. Then they will be in charge of going to clue sites to interview the suspects, and finding the murderer.  Only the smartest of the investigators will be able to see through a false alibi. Often the best sleuth is the man or woman who doesn’t ask a single question, but watches as each character tries to squirm their way into an alibi.

The only way this case will be solved is if the audience can outwit the suspects and solve this endeavor in deadly chemistry. 

The audience will have approximately 40 minutes to conduct interrogations. Then, while they mull over who done it, the will enjoy a delicious dinner

Dinner includes: Homemade chicken soup, salad, different chicken with angel hair pasta for each night (Chicken Picatta - Feb 2 / Chicken Marsala - Feb 9 /Chicken Parmesan - Feb), pasta puttanesca (vegetarian) and deserts.

The Pasta Puttanesca will be the vegetarian dish (will make without anchovies).

Nothing is broke, but the cast is set for “Death & Acids.”

Jessica Deeb, Doug Fransen, Leslie Hill, McCayla Quinn, Dominique Santiago and Andrew Scanio will step onto the Saranac Lake Elks Club stage located at 30 Bloomingdale Ave. at 6:34, in the form of the characters of Dog Catcher, County Coroner, Judge, Zoning Inspector, DMV agent, Economic Development Director

During diner, the audience's answers are collected, just in time for a final resolve where the killer is revealed. Each night a different killer. Each show will start with cocktails at 6:02 p.m., followed by the first act at 6:33, and dinner at 7:34.
