East Georgia State College – Statesboro will be the scene of an entertaining Murder Mystery Dessert Theatre, Shop 'Til You Drop—Dead, on two separate dates, November 10 and 11, 2017 at 8 p.m. Directed by Sebastian Verdis, tickets to the play are $15 for general admission and $10 for senior citizens and those with an EGSC ID. Proceeds to benefit the Bulloch County VOAD, the Ralph Mark Gilbert Civil Rights Museum, and the EGSC-Statesboro Performing Arts Club.
In the play, the hit TV game show "Stop, Shop, and Bankroll" has come to town to tape a few segments, bringing its dashing host, Benny Sharpe, and the lovely hostess, Loreli Lawless. As usual, the director is worried about her temperamental stars, but between Loreli's new feather dress and Benny's vanity, trouble is guaranteed. Contestants from the audience participate in the shopping part of the game, until Benny cashes in his chips - poisoned by person or persons unknown! Miss Peabody, the cookies-and-cream librarian who's no stranger to murder, attempts to keep order until the police arrive. But the director sees a new opportunity for a TV game show - solving the crime with cameras rolling! Three audience members participate in the shopping game and everyone in the audience looks for clues during intermission.
