Weekend Events with Alana Cooper July 11

Friday & Saturday
Shop til You Drop...Dead! Dinner Theatre
Time: Doors open at 6:00 pm, Show begins at 6:30 pm
The hit TV game show "Stop, Shop, and Bankroll" has come to Monroe to tape a few segments, bringing its dashing host, Benny Sharpe, and the lovely hostess, Loreli Lawless. As usual, the director is worried about her temperamental stars, but between Loreli's new feather dress and Benny's vanity, trouble is guaranteed. Contestants from the audience participate in the shopping part of the game, until Benny cashes in his chips - poisoned by person or persons unknown! Miss Peabody, the cookies-and-cream librarian who's no stranger to murder, attempts to keep order until the police arrive. But the director sees a new opportunity for a TV game show - solving the crime with cameras rolling!
