“Dead Emma”



    Oct 26-27. 2007 - 6:30-9:30 - Play: "Dead Emma"


The Watertown Players and the Watertown Historical Society are teaming up to present another edition of the perennial Halloween favorite, "Dead Emma," which will be performed in the Octagon House Museum, 919 Charles St., on Oct. 26 and 27.


The show is an original dark comedy by Bill Jannke, who is also directing the play. It concerns itself with Detective Nick O'Tyme, who comes to investigate the mysterious disappearance of Emma Thomas.  He interviews the mother of the missing woman, the aunt and cousin of the missing lady, a rustic maid, and finally the missing Emma's husband and mother-in-law. There are laughs aplenty in this spoof of the murder mystery genre.


Featured in the show are Peter Smith and Dale Van Holten as the detectives; Joceyln Dawson as Mrs. Bott; Sue Trepte and Geoff Hall as, Mrs. Green; Teresa Geib as Ophelia; Charlotte Groth as Sadie Murdle; Pat Groth as Anna Thomas; and Bryan Quinn as Billy.


The play will be run every 10 to 15 minutes, with audiences being lead through the house by the detectives.  The show will run from 6:30 to 9:30 each night.


Tickets are available on the nights of the show at the tour center.  Cost is $3 for children under 12 years and $5 for adults.
