Twin City Entertainment plans to present its dinner theatre production, “Just Desserts,” at the Strauss Theatre Center on Dec. 11.
The production begins at 6:30 p.m. but doors open at 6 p.m.
The play is written by Craig Sodaro and directed by Brandi Gilmore.
The story of the play: Judge Reginald P. Cogsworth, a curmudegeon who hates sweets, is judging a charity bakeoff, albeit grudgingly. Countless entries have been whittled down to three: an apple crisp submitted by Luch “Scooter” Bright, owner of a nail salon: a Depression-era style cake by Edna Mae Carter, the local librarian: and a delectable pecan pie created by Margaret Mason, a local society lady. In the middle of tasting all the goodies, the judge falls dead, and it’s up to Ms. Peabody,the head of the contest and the audience to determine the murderer.
Food will be catered by Simply Southern.
Admission is $50 a person.
