Spotlight Playhouse delivered a murder mystery dinner theater, ‘Tuned in for Murder, WJRK The Jerk’ written by Chad Hembree.
My sister and I played the parts of Annie Lennex and Joan Jet, two famous rock stars that began from humble beginnings at WJRK. When purchasing tickets, we were asked if we wanted to participate and we said yes without hesitation. The ticket agent handed us a zip lock baggie with wig, jewelry, or clothing.
We went to our seats and dressed for our part. Of all nights to forget my phone at the house an hour and fifteen minutes away, but she forgot her’s in the car. Which we didn’t realize until it was too late for us to leave and return.
The four act show had the main actors in character at all times. If you met them in the hallway on your way to the restrooms, Babe was still Babe WJRK CEO’s second wife. Each act was separated by another course of the meal with the conclusion of the show with cherry cheesecake.
