Cherokee Theatre Company is serving up the delightfully sweet murder mystery dinner theater, “The Last Bite of Chocolate” Saturday at 7 p.m.
Dinner theater productions are a long-standing tradition for CTC with this production marking the 12th dinner theatre to be performed in Cherokee County.
Also a long standing tradition is having Jeff Bennett and Ed Palombo at the helm.
After a two-year hiatus from producing a dinner theater, Bennett and Palombo were excited to get started on the project.
“Murder mysteries are a favorite for Cherokee County audiences. Another favorite? Chocolate of course, so what better way to bring these things together then with a fun and riotous dinner theatre,” Palombo said.
The biggest challenge was finding a space for the production, since a dinner theater works best in a non-traditional theater space.
An opportunity presented itself in a partnership with the Knights of Columbus group at St. Michael’s the Archangel.
“It’s exciting to have a performance opportunity in the Woodstock area,” Palombo said. CTC has partnered with many local groups and strives to bring performances to all corners of Cherokee County.
A cast of long-time improv enthusiasts and talented actors join Bennett of Macedonia and Palombo of Woodstock for this production.
Cody Vaughn, Rich Goodman, Enzo Silva, Teresa Harris, all of Canton, Lindsay Sparks of Kennesaw and Sarah Nation and Brenda Norton Hall, both of Woodstock, are members of the cast.
The performance serves as fundraising opportunity for both CTC and the Knights of Columbus.
Audience members will enjoy dinner and show for $25. Save $25 by reserving a full table for six for $125.
The performance will be in St. Michael’s Parish Hall at 490 Arnold Mill Road, Woodstock. Tickets are available online at cherokeetheatre.org or by calling (770) 591-0282.
