"Polter-Heist"
Our Haunted Inn Show!

  Polter-Heist?  That's right.  The spelling isn't wrong.  This is a show where everyone is trying to heist something--including stealing a ghost.
   Join Madame Zelda Von Schpookum, president of the Boogeyman Outreach Organization (BOO), and a host of whacky characters as they attempt to make contact with the ghost haunting the Mouldering Pines Inn. See Professor Lionel Spector become possessed by the spirit!  Will the bickering innkeepers, Jim and Phyllis Lodge, kill each other before finding the lost treasure?  Will the FBI agents, Smolder and Skullery from the Hex Files division, solve the mystery of the haunted inn before another murder is committed? A hauntingly hilarious show that's perfect for Halloween--or any other time of the year!
This non-musical show has a cast of 5 women and 3 men. It is easily adapted to actors of all ages.  The set is minimal, requiring only two folding chairs and a boom box. One of our most popular shows and the easiest  to perform!

"Murder On the Oriental Rug!"
Our Agatha Christie Spoof!

   Move over -- or roll over-- Agatha Christie, when The Lakeside Players present their new, original mystery dinner show that spoofs old-fashioned whodunits, the medical profession, "female problems," and theater folks!
 
   When half the cast of "Murder on the Oriental Rug" bails out, the remaining performers are stuck playing all the roles. During the first act, you'll meet a Shakespearean actor with a drinking problem, a washed-up former child star, a bimbo with a short memory, and a hapless costumer who finds herself onstage -- playing a man.

 
 
   During the "play within a play," you'll visit the exclusive clinic of Dr. Charles Ovary, renowned hot flash specialist who's secretly treating a famous actress trying desperately to regain her youth. You'll get to know the doctor's coldly efficient wife, his passionate female protégé, the actresses' hunky husband, a flighty French maid, a shifty handyman, and an inspector investigating the dead body on the Oriental rug.
 
  Will the play make it to Broadway? Will the performers remember their lines? Will the Shakespearean actor fit into the maid's costume? Will the chalk outline come out of the rug? Will the inspector solve the murder? Will another murder occur?
   Before the evening's over, some else will be ruthlessly murdered, and it's up to the audience to solve the crime. Prizes will be awarded to the first people who correctly guess the murder and motive.

"Murder  On the Lust Boat!"
 

  Get ready for an evening of hilarious hi-jinx on the high seas when the S.S. Lust Boat sets sail!  Meet Capt. Ivah Dinghy, Fiona Helmsworth, owner of the ship; social director Monique Lewdinsky, and the rest of the wacky cast in the Afterglow Lounge on a luxury ocean liner nicknamed "The Lust Boat." Why the nickname? Because the activities planned by the social director are so naughty, people are running off with other people's mates. In fact, some couples hit dry land and head straight for the divorce lawyer!
    The action revolves around Rico, Man of Mystery, who sits at a table onstage and tries to mind his own business. Trouble is, every staff member on the ship thinks Rico is someone different - from a restaurant critic to a hit man. Rico isn't talking, but the rest of the cast can't shut up. They spend their time gossiping about each other and dredging up secrets from each other's pasts.
    In the end, someone is brutally murdered, and it's up to the audience to guess who done it. Every cast member is a suspect. The audience casts its votes, and the first people to correctly guess the murderer and motive win prizes.

"Eat, Drink and Be Murdered!"
Our Irish Version of the Hatfields and the McCoys!

  Grandma Rose O'Riley McFadden took the O'Riley recipe for homemade whiskey, handed down to her by her father, and gave it to her husband, Finian McFadden. He built a dis­tillery, and now Wild Irish Rose Whiskey is one of the top selling brands in the world. The McFaddens are filthy rich because of the O'Riley family recipe. To make things even worse between the two families, many of the O'Rileys have to work for the McFaddens at the distillery because there's no other employment in the area.
  Finian and Rose have one child, Conor. When Finian died, Conor took over running the distillery--but not with absolute control. When Rose gave away the O'Riley family recipe, she purposely left out one ingredient as an "insurance policy." To this day, only she knows what that ingredient is. For years, she's gone in and added the ingredient to each mix. Rose always knew the family recipe was a worth a fortune; she also suspected that Finian married her for the recipe. She married him because his family had the money to start the distillery, and she hoped she could eventually convince him to include the O'Rileys. Finian turned out to be a real bastard. He hated the O'Rileys, treated them like dirt, and gave them the lowest jobs at the distillery. Rose never divulged the secret ingredient and held out hope that when Conor grew up, he'd take over the business and include the O'Rileys. Unfortunately, Conor turned out to be a chip off the old McFadden block, a real O'Riley hater.
   Now, Rose's health and mind appear to be failing, and both families are worried. If she dies before revealing the secret ingredient, it's curtains for Wild Irish Rose Whiskey and the McFadden empire.
   The McFaddens need the secret to stay in business. The O'Rileys want the secret to begin producing what they feel is rightfully theirs. Family members on both sides have their own reasons for getting their hands on that secret ingredient. To make matters worse, today is Rose's 80th birthday, and both families have been forced to gather under one roof to honor her. It's a family reunion in the middle of a family feud.

   Your audience will need to keep its eyes and ears open, because someone will be ruthlessly murdered at the end of the play, and it’s up to them to guess who-done-it!
