MURDER MYSTERY

It is said that all politics are local, then that means all of the government wanted Travis Rex dead. The departed Mayor of Trout Lake was found dead in a pool of chemicals that were not accidental. This is the beginning of “Death & Acids, a Gem*Boy Productions Murder Mystery. The show will be staged at the Adirondack Hotel in Long Lake on March 23.

Little is known about the murder, but one thing is for sure, it seems everyone in Trout Lake wanted Travis Rex dead and too many people had access to the means. In fact, like the murder weapon, acids, Travis Rex was referred to as another A-word (arrogant) by everyone who had contact with him.

To his face, he was called T-Rex. Men hated him, women loved to hate him. And children had nightmares about him.

The audience will watch as the first act unfolds. Each character’s reason for killing will be revealed. Then they will go to clue sites to interview the suspects and finding the murderer.  Only the smartest of the investigators will be able to see through a false alibi. Often the best sleuth is the man or woman who doesn’t ask a single question but watches as each character tries to squirm their way into an alibi.

The only way this case will be solved is if the audience can outwit the suspects and solve this endeavor in deadly chemistry.

The audience will have approximately 20 minutes to conduct interrogations. Then, while they mull over who done it, the will enjoy a delicious dinner.

Expect the finest in dining with an Adirondack Hotel Buffet. 

Nothing is broke, but the cast is set for “Death & Acids.”

During diner, the audience’s answers are collected, just in time for a final resolve where the killer is revealed. Each night a different killer. Each show will start with cocktails at 6:02 p.m., followed by the first act at 6:33, and dinner at 7:34.

CAST

Jessica Deeb, Rick Burdt, Kristin Finn, McCayla Quinn and Andrew Scanio will step onto the Adirondack Hotel located in Long Lake, in the form of the characters of Dog Catcher, Judge, Zoning Inspector, DMV agent, Economic Development Director.

Please call for reservation. Ticket price for Dinner and Show $29. Spend the Night Take a 20% discount on your room. 518/624-4700

LAKE PLEASANT MUSICAL

Broadway is coming to Speculator! The Lake Pleasant Central School’s Drama Club would like to invite the community to support this year’s musical production of Lion King, Jr.

A lively stage adaptation of the Academy Award-winning 1994 Disney film. The Lion King, Jr. is the story of a young lion prince living in the flourishing African Pride Lands. 

Born into the royal family, precocious cub Simba spends his days exploring the sprawling savanna grasslands and idolizing his kingly father, Mufasa, while youthfully shirking the responsibility his position in life requires. 

When an unthinkable tragedy, orchestrated by Simba’s wicked uncle, Scar, takes his father’s life, Simba flees the Pride Lands, leaving his loss and the life he knew behind. 

Eventually companioned by two hilarious and unlikely friends, Simba starts anew. But when weight of responsibility and a desperate plea from the now ravaged Pride Lands come to find the adult prince, Simba must take on a formidable enemy, and fulfill his destiny to be king.

A vibrant and exciting tale from the great creatives at Disney, The Lion King is a story of love and redemption that nobody should miss.

Please join us at the Lake Pleasant Central School “Theater” on April 5 at 7 p.m. and April 6 at 1 p.m. for an amazing theatrical experience. Hope to see you there!

ACOUSTIC JAM

Join us on Sunday, April 14 from 2 to 4 p.m. at the Adirondack Hotel in Long Lake for an acoustic jam session. The setting is very intimate and there is no amplification.

Typical instruments at these sessions are guitar, dobro, fiddle, dulcimer, mandolin, accordion, concertina, banjo, spoons and bass.

We take turns picking the tunes as we go around the group and we’ll take requests from the audience (sometimes we even know the song). The number of tunes that each person will choose will depend on the size of the group. But if you just want to play your instrument as part of the group, you can. Come join us and enjoy the day. And always remember, you don’t get better unless you play.

There will not be Jam Sessions in May or June.

If you have any questions, email longlakejamsessions@gmail.com.
