WRITING BOOTCAMP - "Writing Can Be Murder"
As many of you may already know, Marion Civic Theatre has now performed three murder mystery dinner theaters. Each one of them has been a little different in theme and style, but all have been done in the same general format. Well, we have been given the opportunity to write our own! We will start from the beginning and make up our own characters, theme, and plot. We will create our own motives, means, and opportunities. Every last detail will be our own! Once we are finished, we will perform OUR murder mystery.
Kathy Daniels and Happi Stoffel will facilitate a writing bootcamp, "Writing Can Be Murder," on March 8, 2014 from 11:00am-3:00pm at MCT.
Depending on how many people attend, we will work together on one mystery or will split into groups to do more than one.
NOTE: If you begin working on a mystery (in any way including just brainstorming), you will NOT be able to be part of the cast (a suspect) of that mystery. You can be involved as a director, producer, set designer, or otherwise help with the show, but you cannot be a suspect. You can, however, be a suspect in one of the other mysteries written (if there ends up being more than one group).
In order to plan and make sure we have all the materials, food, and all of the other goodies for that day, please let the office know if you're interested in attending as soon as possible. This will also help us keep in touch with those interested people in case of any other announcements that need to be made between now and then. If you cannot attend but want to be a part of this creative endeavor, let the office know that too.
Hope to see many of you there!!!! We're really excited about this and hope you are too. If you have any questions, you can direct them to the office or Happi, email@example.com.
