The Mystery of Thade Mansion

Premiering Thursday, May 3, is a brand new murder mystery by Port Perry playwright, Dave Ellis. Think Agatha Christie meets Raymond Chandler. It’s 1938, and a group of Americans are all invited to the Thade Mansion in Buenos Aires. Their only connection: they were all key players in the sensational trial of wealthy Chicago industrialist Thomas Thade. But Thade died before the trial ended – so why have all these people been invited to the house of a dead man?  As the bodies begin to pile up, so do the clues, until all is revealed in a thrilling conclusion.

The Mystery of Thade Mansion is full of fun and interesting characters, loads of deaths, singing, dancing, and yeah, even a good ol’fashioned fight scene. Your humble blogger, is also one the stars, so if you’re in Port Perry the nights of May 3-5, or May 10-12, or the afternoons of the 5 and 12, swing on by the Port Perry Town Hall, and catch a world premiere extravaganza.

    Shamless self-promotion. ;)

    Of course.

    That souns like an awful lot of fun. Murder mysteries are surprisingly effective on stage, and a bit of singing and dancing never does any harm.

    Well, it probably wouldn’t be very beneficial in Death of a Salesman… Murder mystery thrillers can certainly afford to take a break for a song, though. :)

    Break a leg or two!

    (Death of a Salesman’s not really a murder mystery.)

    I know… Maybe I should rephrase the comment. :( Thus:

    “Murder mysteries are surprisingly effective on stage. And a bit of singing and dancing never does any harm in the theatre. Well, it probably wouldn’t be very beneficial in Death of a Salesman… Murder mystery thrillers, on the other hand, can certainly afford to take a break for a song.”

    I wasn’t intending to suggest that DoaS was a murder mystery, just to tongue-in-cheek-ily point out that some plays wouldn’t be helped by a musical number or two. However, you’d never have believed Pygmalion could work with songs!
