Troupe brings 'Zara' to stage
DANVILLE — The Red Mask Players will present the murder-mystery, "Zara, Or Who Killed the Queen of the Silent Screen?," the next two weekends at the Kathryn Randolph Theater, 601 N. Vermilion St.
Curtain times are 8 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays and 2 p.m. Sundays. Reservations may be made by calling 442-5858 or by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. Tickets are $15 for adults, $12 for senior citizens and $10 for students.
The theater group gives this synopsis:
"Who killed Zara? Was it the jealous secretary or chauffeur, the money-hungry nephew of the Baron, or the Baron himself? Maybe it was the jilted director, or could it be Zara's aunts? Seances, ghosts and the jazz age are all part of the murder of Zara St. Cyr, the fascinating film star. Sixty years after the crime, Martin James, a writer, is determined to find out whodunit.
"Suspense, comedy and mystery follow Martin and his wife when they move into Zara's beach house. They are mysteriously thrust into the past where they find Zara alive and kicking. During the stormy night, tension builds as Zara's guests reveal their motives for murder."
"Zara" is directed by Debbie Prentice. Cast members are Jennifer Lee, Shanon Hoag, Ashley Kirby, Donna Sant, Bev Nees, Jim Crain, Greg Apple and Tyler Russell.
