Centerstage fund-raiser a mystery

For the Mirror

In 2004, Centerstage Theatre pulled itself out of financial difficulty with its “Murder Mystery Event,” a fund-raiser which generated $23,000 for the Federal Way-based company

Repeating the format was a no-brainer for the Centerstage board of directors, officials said. So on Sept. 16, the event will return to Twin Lakes Golf and Country Club for a presentation of “The Idiiot’s Funeral.”

The audience will become mourners, lamenting the death of the idiot of Federal Way. She said she never knew what became of a missing $168 million lottery ticket and took the secret with her to the grave.

While the audience mourns, one of their number dies horribly –– and it’s up to the audience to solve the crime.

Tickets are $65 per person or $500 for a table of eight. Reservations can be made through Centerstage at 661-1444 and

The price of admission includes dinner and the show. Dinner choices include top sirloin, grilled salmon or chicken marsala.

A private performance is scheduled for Sept. 15 for country club members only.
