Murder and blackmail are on the menu at the Brook Arts Center when six mysterious guests assemble for a dinner party at Boddy Manor.
Based on the cult 1985 Paramount movie and inspired by the classic Hasbro game, this farce-meets murder- mystery is bloody good fun. When six guests are invited to a dinner party thrown by an anonymous host, they are given aliases—Colonel Mustard, Mrs. White, Mr. Green, Mrs. Peacock, Professor Plum, and Miss Scarlet. Though discouraged from revealing personal information, it is soon discovered that all of them have fallen victim to the same blackmailer—their host for the evening! Each is presented with a weapon and an option: pay their extortionist double or kill the innocent butler.
What follows is a madcap, slapstick evening full of murder, mystery, and laughs as they seek to puzzle out the culprit amongst criminals. Was it Mrs. Peacock in the study with the knife? Or Colonel Mustard in the library with the wrench? Can you solve the mystery, before it is revealed?

The 1950 Tony Award-winner for Best Musical takes the stage at the Brook Arts Center. Based on short stories by American author Damon Runyon, Guys and Dolls is a musical romantic comedy set in Depression-era Times Square.
It’s a story about a couple of big-city gamblers and the women who love them. involving the unlikeliest of Manhattan pairings: a high-rolling gambler and a puritanical missionary, a showgirl dreaming of the straight-and-narrow, and a crap game manager who is anything but. It’s a story about rolling the dice and falling in love!
Guys and Dolls take us from the bustle of Times Square to the dance clubs of Havana to the sewers of New York City as it demonstrates the great lengths to which a guy will go when he truly falls in love with a “doll.” Guys and Dolls feature some of Frank Loesser’s most memorable tunes, including the hilarious “Adelaide’s Lament,” the romantic “I’ve Never Been in Love Before,” the exuberant “If I Were a Bell,” and the classic “Luck Be a Lady."
