CBA Junior Play March 4

“Murder at Coppersmith Inn” by Dan Neidermyer will be presented by the CBA junior class on March 4th.  A classified ad for Three College-Age Actresses with Dinner Theater Experience sets this whole story into motion as the director, Alex Anderson, (Carter Smith) needs three more performers for the Coppersmith Inn’s upcoming murder-mystery weekend.  Three stage-struck high school juniors, Mandy, Elinor, and Sara (Morgan Potter, Bria Jasmer, and Amy Freeman) answer the casting call with their performance as three college-aged actresses i.e. they lie.  Despite their recently grown up appearance, the girls do not have the theatrical skills to make themselves believable veterans of the stage—they’re terrible, dreadfully egregious.  But the inn is almost bankrupt, and Alex and his dutiful assistant Mabel Derkin (Laura Marrufo) are counting on a packed out house this weekend to a sold out crowd in order to keep his landlord, one villainous Mortimer Scroggs (Dakota Brewer) and his loyal sidekick, Mr. Gooch (David Gwartney), who visit the basement of the inn every day to check the historic inn’s aging plumbing, off his back about the rent money.  The truth is—the Coppersmith Inn needs these three girls to join their cast and help the inn get out of the red.  The harried director seems to overlook the comical travesty that happens on his stage:  actors forget their lines, the acting is terrible, sound effects drown out the dialogue, it’s always raining, someone’s always screaming and the wrong person is murdered.

The Coppersmith Players are an eccentric group of sophisticated actors with years of dinner theater experience. Miss Louella DuPage (Cassidy Listak) is the matron of the group and the star of the show, who is dissatisfied with her role as Lucille Cashman, a woman pretending to be dead, and lets everyone know about it.  Cameron Cashman, Lucille’s also-playing-dead husband is played by Coppersmith Player, Archibald McCox (Spencer Boese) whose absentmindedness begins to affect his performance.  Rocky Cheevers (Dakota Clayton), a polished and good-natured jock/actor who has only been at the inn for 22 days, just might have found his new steady working opposite Mandy a.k.a. Desiree Coulton as he plays Chad Cashman, an athletic Olympic hopeful who tries to keep his Aunt Lucille happy as she hides from her crooked attorney Blendon, played by Coppersmith Inn’s Celia Innis (Allison Russell).  Doing all the behind-the-scenes work for the inn and the murder-mystery production is Birdie Mayhew (Audrey Spalding), whose job title is housekeeper and special-effects technician.
Birdie especially loves providing the stormy nights.  Guests of the inn are elderly sisters, Heidi Breitenbach a.k.a. Detective Bruce McEvans (Dylan Schmidt) and Gertrude Esterworth a.k.a. Detective Roger Millanowski (James Vercellotti) and one romance writer, Kris Lynn McCord (Justin Sawatsky) who has come for rest and relaxation while trying to find inspiration for his next novel.

There must be a crime happening somewhere, but who’s rehearsing and who’s veritable?  Come watch the detectives, Gertrude and Heidi, as they leave no stone unturned while trying to break up an international crime ring in Murder at Coppersmith Inn.  Performances by the CBA Junior Class will be on March 4, 2016, for a 1 pm matinee ($3) and a 7 pm evening showing ($7).  A Senior Class supper is available beforehand from 5:00-6:30 pm, including a Big Burger Bar with a choice of toppings: bacon, mushrooms, fried onions, pineapple, several cheeses and much more, which will be served with baked beans, chips and ice cream with toppings for $8.
