PRODUCTION DESCRIPTION

Laughs fly when some outrageous contestants show up for the talent competition at Vinnie's Belly Laugh Club. A ventriloquist with moving lips, a not-so-funny stand up comedian, a baton twirling bimbo, a lip synching poodle and her flamboyant owner, a chanteuse with a questionable accent, and a hypnotist with a twitch all vie for the grand prize. When Vinnie turns up dead, they're all suspects and you, the audience, must question them and finger the murderer!

Performances at the Norcross Community and Cultural Arts Center (the old Methodist Church) located at 10 Britt Avenue in Historic Downtown Norcross.

Australian Wins The Crowd

I was just talking to a co worker of mine about this play and came across this site. I think it's time this great show gets a great review.

I went with a few girlfriends to see the opening of a play I had heard about from a girl at TGI Fridays. Let me tell you, I was not disappointed. The show started off a bit slow as you got to know the characters, but once they all joined in the show really picked up. The cast was beautifully assembled and they seemed to have a wonderful chemistry throughout the entire mystery of the piece. I enjoyed each of their interrogations and was eager to find out who the supposed murderer was. The crowd voted and they had picked a young man known as The Great Samnombulo. He was a hypnotist.

This is where I began to love this play. But let me tell you first- I think a lot of his friends were there because a good bit of the people who voted for him were in the same age range. Bravo to them because his performance took the show to knew heights.- He stands center stage to deliver his monologue about why he murdered the club owner, but he does it in a flawless Australian accent. I am not sure if this spirited performer is actually from Down Under but I would certainly believe it.

All in all this was a gem of a play, the crowning glory to me had to be the gentleman in the end who really capped off the night. I highly recommend seeing them whenever you can. [POST A COMMENT REGARDING THIS REVIEW]
