Anything that CAN go wrong, HAS gone wrong aboard the S.S. Amore, a not-so-luxurious honeymoon cruise ship. Captain Giovanni Della Robbia is trying to calm the passengers, with the assistance of the cruise director, Gina.  You will join the crew on talent night aboard the Amore. Just when it looks like the cruise won’t be a total disaster, the Captain is murdered. Suspects include honeymooners, the crew, and Chef Fredo — whose temperament is matched by the large knife he wields.  Attendees are encouraged to dress in tropical cruise attire and will be judged for prizes.  Official cruise photos will also be taken.

The murder mystery takes place February 22 and 23, 2019 at the Wagon Wheel Center for the Arts.  Auditions for “Murder on the S. S. Amore” will be held on November 27 & 28, 2018 at 6:30 PM in the First United Methodist Church downtown at 179 S. Indiana Street, Warsaw, IN 46580. The ability to convincingly speak with an Italian accent is encouraged. We are looking for talented, dedicated men (four) and women (three) to audition for the parts. Rehearsals will be based on the schedules of those cast. There will also be opportunities for others to be involved as clue helpers and assistants. If you are interested in helping with scenery or lighting, please stop by and fill out an audition sheet.
