Dinner theater reservations due by Monday

SANDWICH – Reservations for PR Productions’ next murder mystery dinner are due Monday.

“A Day in the Life of Murder” will be performed on Oct. 11 and 12 at Fox Valley Community Center, 1406 Suydam Road, Sandwich.

Dinner begins each night at 7 p.m., with the performance to follow. 

“This particular production is very unique,” said Christopher Roe, director of the production. “Not only will we give audiences everything they’ve come to expect in a murder mystery comedy, but we will directly involve them in the story.”

Much of this performance will be improvised, taking suggestions from the audience on key aspects of the story line.

Roe said even the cast won’t know who the murderer is.

“We are literally practicing every scenario we can think of,” he said. “But, still, we have no idea who will suggest what outcome and who will be the murderer.”

Audience members will be instrumental in the show’s outcome, but will not participate in a clue hunt as in previous murder mystery productions.

“This particular show has been carefully designed with the audience member in mind,” Roe said. “While they won’t hunt for clues this time, they will have the opportunity to interrogate cast members, if they choose.” 

Tickets are $25 each and include a buffet dinner. Dinner includes baked chicken, Italian beef, lasagna, potato salad, mashed potatoes and gravy, green bean casserole, California vegetables, coleslaw, salad and dressing, rolls and butter, and dessert.

Show-only tickets, which do not include dinner or dessert, are available for $12.

A cash bar is available at the performance, and coffee, lemonade, and water are included. 

To reserve your tickets, go to or call 888-395-0797.

Yes. Sterling and Dixon have had bans for years. It’s time for Rock Falls to impose a ban.
No. It would be too great a burden for homeowners to dispose of fallen leaves in other ways.
