The Northview Theater invites everyone to a theatrical experience like no other. "Til Death Do Us Part," is an exciting murder-mystery comedy written by Craig Sodaro, and will be presented Friday, Nov. 7, 7 p.m. and Saturday, Nov. 8, 2 p.m. in the Northview High School Auditorium. Emily Gough directs the show and Shaun Short and Josh Hoffman are providing choreography.

For Lotus Blossom, a hippie herbologist and Leo Lomax, a zany zookeeper, what is suppose to be the happiest day of their lives takes a turn for the worse when one of their wedding guests turns up dead. As an assortment of evidence turns up, suspicion is cast on nearly every member of the wedding party. Was it Newton Figg, the computer geek, or Ramon Escobar, the suave tango instructor? Are the bridesmaids Glinda and Rhoda all they seem to be? Could the bubble-headed Lulu be smarter that she lets on? Maybe it's even the groom's disapproving mother and grandmother. Don't forget the caterer or the stuffy lawyer who knows what they might be up to. It's up to Miss Peabody, an amateur sleuth and guest at the wedding to determine who the real murderer is. She'll need some help from the other guests before it's over, including some members of the audience. Don't forget, this is still a wedding, which means dancing, the bouquet toss and of course some cake.

Senior Clara Butts will portray the lead role of Polly Peabody, the amateur sleuth who shows up for a wedding and ends up in the midst of a crime scene. Kendra McCrea and Josh Dillman are the bride and groom while Josiah Alstott and Kaelene Jones take on the roles of the parents of the groom Johansen is the grumpy grandmother. Additional cast members include Allison Brown (Betsy Crocker), Allie Haddon (Lulu DePew), Ashley Roll (Secretary), Caitlin Stemm (Rhoda Broccoli), Caroline Disney (Aunt Hildy), Ericka Disney (Fanny Fishburne), LeeAnn Lawson (Cousin Etta), Michael Pleake (Howard Johnson), Seth Hughes (Ramon Escobar), Seth McDonald (Newton Figg) and Stephanie Bechtel (Glinda Goodwitch). Extras and improvisation specialists include Alexis Gibbens, Gwendolyn Snow, Jessica Tallman, Kaylee Stycker, Kelsey Carter and Shea McCoy.

Regular admission prices are $5 for adults and $3 for K-12 students. Children not yet in school are free. VIP tickets are also available for $10. These tickets ensure not only a prime seat for the show, but also allow theater goers to truly become a part of the show by coming on stage to interact with the performers and look for clues.
