CURTAIN CALL: Expect Hollywood drama with Player's Murder Mystery Dinner

MILLEDGEVILLE — “You oughta be in pictures, you’re wonderful to see.  You oughta be in pictures, Oh what a hit you would be!”

If you’ve always thought you ought to be in pictures (and not just the kind on the post office walls), you’re in luck as that desire certainly fits the theme of the upcoming murder mystery dinner (MMD) being presented by the Milledgeville Players, "Final Cut".

Director Eddie Cheek is looking for backers for his new movie so he’s throwing a gala shindig/awards ceremony for interested parties.  In return for funding his movie, he’s promising them parts in the picture.

Eddie is a self absorbed, egocentric, over the top B-movie director whose movies tend to become cult classics more than mainstream films. 

Many of his actors are people who have either given him money, slept with him, or are in the process of blackmailing him.

He’s having a time getting the financial backing for his new extravaganza, “The Zombie Was an Alien”.  So what better way to do it than to throw a giant Hollywood party and have the elite of the movie business in attendance.

And what better way to make sure they attend than to feed them and promise them awards and possible roles in his picture.   Let’s face it, no matter how bad the movie is, you can always get actors, producers and people with money and limited talent to show up if you promise them possible awards and lots of flattering about how wonderful they are.

But all is not well for Eddie and members of his crew and cast, and the nights of February 21 and 22 will truly be deadly for several who make their way up the red carpet.

In fact, Eddie really has to be careful about many of the people he has already hired for this movie.  There are all sorts of “interesting” Hollywood types lurking around this MMD and upcoming columns will provide more details about them, as well as suggestions concerning how to dress for the evening.
