What I do have to share is the most fun thing we did while we were in New Jersey visiting my mother. We made our traditional trek out to Peddler's Village outside New Hope, PA.
While there, we stopped at the Golden Plough Inn for murder and mayhem caused by Without A Cue Productions and their Murder Mystery Dinner Theater (Subtitled Dinner, Dessert, and Death). This week's play was titled: Itt's an Addams Family Mystery.
Mark Cook as Gomez Addams
Basically, the story was The Addams Family daughter, Wednesday, announces her engagement to Eddie Munster, but he is suddenly killed, and it's up to the actors to give the diners enough info so they can guess whodunnit for a prize.
The cast sings the Addams Family theme songIt was a very funny play with lots of ad libbing, double entendres and the occasional spooky songs thrown in for a change of pace.
Marilyn Munster sings a song (I want to say "Thriller" but can't be sure)
The action takes place on the stage as well as on the floor, involving the diners in the doin's.
Marble Man dances with Grandmama Addams to "Thriller"
Dinner was delicious:
Mmm.... filet mingon with lovely sides. Or as Uncle Fester likes to call it: Dead Cow! :O
And as we ate, the actors took a break from the action and schmoozed the diners
Jen Jaynes as Marilyn Munster
Marble Man talks with Uncle Fester, played by Ron Bush
After the hilarity finished, Mom, Marble Man, and I walked outside to find the shopping village dressed in her holiday finery:
Everywhere we turned we saw trees and buildings festooned with colored fairy lights. It's official, I've got the holiday spirit now.
Happy Holidays, Everyone!
Oh, and as for whodunnit? I can't say as the play runs through the end of December. Don't want to spoil it for anyone. ;)
