A little about this project….
We had just finished our first full run-through of our newest jazz murder mystery, “Murder at the Yacht Club” by Laura-Lee Pernsky when Covid-19 hit.
Knowing that someday the show would go on we decided to keep rehearsing through Zoom. We found we really enjoyed the online collaboration. It was during one of these rehearsals our director, Olivia Whiddon, pulled out the old script for “Death on the Lake” from our 2018/2019 season and realized it would work extremely well as a radio play. The script is largely made of monologues, and with all our members being singers, the cast is well versed in how to use their voices. We still had all but two of the original cast working on the new production so almost everyone had a script, and Kelley Morrell took over the role of Johnnie Bates and Olivia took Clara McMurphy. Our next step was to create even more of a radio feel by adding an announcer to the project, Wendy Paton.
