Murder Mystery Dinner Theatre
A night of mystery, music, and MURDER!
Please join us for an interactive dinner theatre event!
A backstage Broadway murder-mystery
Written by Carole Ashley
Dress up and join the Tipping Point Theatre for a fundraising night of fine dining, live jazz music, and, of course, a murder to be solved!
You’re invited to watch as New York’s famous director Tristan deVille takes his Broadway-bound actors through a final rehearsal of Serenade in Shadow – but it seems everyone’s acting out, instead of really acting. Old loves, jealousies, greed, and revenge get in the way of the performance. There’s trouble before the curtain falls! Be ready to solve the murder as the script reveals plot twists that nobody will see coming.

New Years’ Eve Event
by Joseph Zettelmaier
December 31, 2013
In this Christmas carol, local Michigan playwright, Joseph Zettelmaier, fast-forwards 15 years after the immortal night featured in Dickens’ story. Ebenezer unveils what happened after the Ghosts of Christmas Past, Present, and Future intervened in Ebenezer Scrooge’s life. Now a great humanitarian, Scrooge has changed the atmosphere of London by keeping many charities afloat with his generosity. But this Christmas Eve, Scrooge believes he is near death and is waiting for some unearthly visitors. Accompany Scrooge’s nurse, Miss Alice Poole, and his nephew, Tim Cratchet, as they bear witness to the dying moments of an incredible man and mystery in this modern tale of reinvention and hope.
Love, Loss and What I Wore
by Nora and Delia Ephron
October 25-27, 2013
A show about women and the clothes they wear!
In this heartfelt comedy by chick-flick favorites, Nora and Delia Ephron, clothing is used as a vehicle to access some of the most vulnerable moments in a woman’s life. Shopping for undergarments is transformed from a mortifying experience to a symbol of womanhood, a birthday outfit becomes a story of acceptance, and a bathrobe comes to embody the relationship between mother and daughter. Through a collection of monologues, the all female cast of “What I Wore” reminds us that what we wear flourishes more than our outfit; it accessorizes life’s most pivotal moments of love and loss.
