MH Library to host benefit murder mystery

The cast of “Murder Maestro, Please” includes a carefully selected group of local community representatives who will hit the stage at the Morristown-Hamblen Library on Friday in support of its free adult and children’s programs.

There’s no place like a library to find a good murder mystery.

Friday, at 6 p.m., the Morristown-Hamblen Library will come to life after hours with several dignitaries from the area strutting their stuff on stage in the 2019 production of “Murder Maetro, Please.”

The only way to find out who did the deadly deed at Station KILR is to attend the show thatwill be held in the main circulation room. In addition to finding out who the culprit is, audience members will also have the opportunity to check out what off-the-wall attire the cast memebers be wearing.

Tickets for ‘Murder Maestro, Please’ are available at the circulation desk at the library.

Several cast members from last year’s play will be returning with at least two new performers.

They include County Mayor Bill Brittain, Sheriff Esco Jarnagin, Yolanda Treece, Michele Green, Ron Peterson, Pam Short, Stephen Smith, Sherri Jacobs, Bill Zierer, Marty Steffen and Tanna Purkey. Emceeing during the evening will be City Council member Kay Senter.

Food is being prepared by staff members and volunteers and will be served during “half time.”

Those who can’t make up their minds to attend until Friday, should call the library at 586-6410 to see if tickets are still available. The cost is $25, with proceeds to benefit 2020 events, such as Craft’s With the Staff, Senior Pie and Bingo, and the Lego Club. These events are free to the public. Those interested in participating can call the library to sign up and participate.
