Mickey Chigger, a nasty newspaper critic, turns up dead at the Chestnut Hollow Little Theatre’s final dress rehearsal of “The Curse of Infant Isle.” The players, desperate for a box office success, will go to any lengths to avoid a scandal. And that means, yes!, moving the critic’s body from the rest room where he died to the parking lot. That way the late Mr. Chigger will keep his dignity, even thought he doesn’t really deserve it, but even more importantly, the theatre won’t get bad press such as “The play was so bad it killed him!” But just when they think they might squeak by, a detective arrives on the scene to declare that the critic has been murdered! To add to their troubles, Editor Blather of the local paper insists that the Little Theatre host a memorial service for the late Mickey Chigger, a decision she soon regrets with the ever-wailing Widow Chigger and inappropriate bathroom sound effects blaring from the sound booth. Does the critic’s laptop computer with his final review hold the clue to the identity of the murderer? And what in the detective’s mysterious past makes him seem so familiar? Here’s a spoof just for (and about) community theatres that will knock’em dead with laughter. Formerly entitled, “The Night We Knocked the Critic Dead (And Had to Hide the Body…).
