It is the 83rd anniversary of the long ago tragedy that ended the Inn’s love affair with vaudeville theatre. In 1929 the vaudeville magician Morgo the Magnificent was performing his usual act of mind boggling illusions and death defying stunts. As always, he was assisted by his beautiful wife, Clarisse.
The high point of their performance was when Morgo would “saw” Clarisse in half. The illusion wowed and delighted audiences of all ages. But on that fateful night something went terribly wrong. He sawed her in half. REALLY sawed her in half. In grief and remorse Morgo hanged himself and the couple haunts the location to this day.
Lois Merchant, CEO of Merchant Entertainment, has hired noted seer, Simone the Psychic, who will lead the audience in a seance to contact the ghosts of Morgo and Clarisse. Unfortunately, Simone appears to be a “few crystals short of a ball” and the seance does not proceed exactly as planned.
Someone has stopped breathing…and it isn’t the ghosts.
Murder by Magic, written by Eileen Moushey and directed by Adrian Thomas, stars Adam Melton, Tod C. Riddle, Stephanie Sorrell, Paige Munroe-Mattocks, Jill Bruce Cunningham and Winnie Seals as Simone the Psychic.
