The Bruce County Playhouse (BCP) is gearing up for their pre-season events beginning with their annual Murder Mystery event on Saturday, January 27.

Lead by the Bruce County Playhouse, The Ravenwood Masquerade Murder will get underway at 8 p.m. (doors open at 7:30 p.m.) at the Southampton Town Hall. “It is an interactive entertainment experience where everyone participates, trying to solve the mystery by interrogating other witnesses,” said Leslie McNamara, BCP Promotional Director.

“It’s based on a series of clues dispersed throughout the evening to help discover ‘who done it,’” she added.

Tickets are $45 and include the murder mystery, appetizers and a dance. With tickets already half sold, theatre goers are strongly urged to contact BCP in advance to receive costume suggestions and to secure their characters.

Then beginning on Sunday, January 28, the Southampton Sunday Showcase will again take the stage at the Southampton Town Hall.

With subsequent events on February 25 and March 25, the afternoon Showcases get underway at 2 p.m. and feature unscripted local talent performing music, dance, storytelling, comedy and drama.

BCP provides the stage for “local, incredible performers” to entertain, explained McNamara.

“It’s no secret that we have a deep talent pool in Saugeen Shores,” she added.

Admission for Talenteers is free (please arrive by 1:30 p.m.) with spectators paying $5 at the door. Tea, coffee, pop and treats will be available.

Heading into their fourth year, the Bruce County Playhouse is all set with two shows for their 2018 Summer Season. The 39 Steps, a stage adaptation by Patrick Barlow of the 1915 novel by John Buchan was also a 1935 film by Alfred Hitchcock. And Norm Foster’s Storm Warning is set in 1953 and tells the story of two hearts coming together one September weekend.

Bruce County Playhouse is also finalizing plans for a Family Theatre Series.
