“My Dead Lady”

Professor Barry Biggins has a problem. Azalia Dimwittle has completely failed every attempt to elevate her from Cockney flower girl to aristocratic lady. She simply hasn’t gotten it, never will get it, and now everyone has just about had it. To make matters worse, she’s invited you and the rest of her conniving family over to the Professor’s house for her father’s birthday party. By George, I think she’s going to get it (if she doesn’t get them first).

Dang, you might even win a big ol’ slop bucket full of money! Yeehaw! Best watch your step on the farm this year, though. Pa’s been hitting the moonshine a might too hard and is about to lose the farm to that no good snake, Beauregard Hogwallerin! When the girls find out, somebody could end up on the barbecue!

“Death Takes a Bow”

All the world’s a stage, but some stages are worth more than others. Welcome to the historic White Tulip, the seediest theater in London, yet a place everyone seems to want. Tonight, a tycoon temptress and her tawdry toady take on a territorial thespian and his trollop of a treasurer in a tussle for title of this theatrical tenement. What valuable secrets lie behind the scenes, and how far will someone go to unearth them? Let the buyer beware: At this showplace greed steals every scene and dying on stage could be more than a figure of speech.

“The Sound of Murder”

High on a hill died a lonely goatherd and some people around the Abbey are beginning to get the idea that sweet little Maria just might be a budding serial killer. Is she now at sixteen, going on seventeen? What exactly are her favorite things? Mother Abbess and her new assistant, Sister Adolph, are calling in all nuns and townsfolk to decide what to do. Even the pompous Captain Von Trumpp and his bratty children will be there. Don’t be late. You don’t want Sister Adolph shaking her carrot at you.
