“Murder at the Juice Joint”

ABOUT THE MURDER MYSTERY

There will be a date in the near future in which a mystery will take place! THE EASTERN UPPER PENINSULA COMMUNITY DISPUTE RESOLUTION CENTER (E.U.P. CDRC) will open its doors to the FIRST ANNUAL dinner theater performance of ‘Murder at the Juice Joint,’ a swanky speakeasy murder mystery theater production directed by Ms. Christin McKerchie, in partnership with the Executive Director of the E.U.P. CDRC, Mrs. Nikki Dowd-McKechnie, the creator of the original idea of hosting this unique fundraiser opportunity.

This year’s murder mystery event, ‘Murder at the Juice Joint’ brings the ‘Roaring 20’s’ to life right before your eyes. Bringing back the days of Prohibition and organized crime, the ‘Juice Joint’ is without doubt, the hottest spot around. With characters such as Rosie Marie, Molly Moll, Southside Sal, Mugsy Malone and Dina Diva, this is definitely an evening that you don’t want to miss!

We extend an invitation for you to join us on a journey of adult themed humor, sizzling scenes, mystery and murder. Each guest will travel through an investigative journey and be faced with the question: Who will be the victim? Who did it? How did they do it? And why did they do it? Enjoy cocktails and dinner while the mystery unfolds right before your eyes. Will you be able to solve the mystery? Or are you a part of the mystery? No one really knows for sure! Can anyone in the theater really be trusted?!

The performers, dancers and the creative dance styles matching the era, along with the costumes, the soundtrack, along with the props and guests that arrive in 1920’s attire, will create a unique atmosphere and a theater experience that will not be forgotten for years to come. The actors and actresses involved include many talented members from our community. The dancers come to us through the Academy of Performing Arts providing depth and vision to the overall mystery. Rosie Marie, the Juice Joint owner will be played by seasoned actress Ginger Stratton. Dina Diva, played by Donna Paquette shows us that her dreams of going to Hollywood are not so far out of reach! The Flirty Flapper, played by Kayla Price will shake and shimmy her way throughout the evening. Maxine Anderson adds life to the joint with her role as Cy’s main squeeze Molly Moll. Dan Harris plays Hollywood Hall and is sure to be a crowd favorite along with Aaron Jenkins who became well known for his role as the ‘Lion’ in the Soo Theater Production, the Wizard of Oz.
