I Bet Your Life
By Fred Carmichael
Directed by James Nelson
Auditions: March 10th & 11th at 7pm
Performances: April 30th - May 10th

Soap opera author Matthew Stoddard (Dimitri Markov, Brookville) has written a screenplay about a terminally ill man who hires a hitman to kill him and then finds out he was misdiagnosed. Matt's agent and best friend, Greg Larson (Brad Rarick, Brookville), thinks the plot is not feasible so Matt contacts a gangster and arranges for an incognito hitman to join them at a dinner party in the country to prove his point. The gangster hires people to play the dinner party guests and they start popping in the house.  The guests include the cook/housekeeper, Laura Pudney (Cindi Cuny, Trotwood), the Soap Opera Actress, Lila Langforth (Cathy Rarick, Brookville) and the local plumber, Burton Finley (G. Michael Robinson, Fairborn). Circumstances place a real hitman among the guests and the action accelerates as they try to find out who it is before the deadline. Stacy Kingsley (Carly Risenhoover-Peterson, Kettering), secretary and love interest to both men, does her best to help them solve the identity question as surprise after surprise thwarts them. Is the whole scheme really a con game? And who cons the con man? And who is conning them all? Hilarious situations, clever dialogue, intriguing romance and surprise twists make this comedy a delight to watch!

Rounding out the cast is Kathy DeVorak (Lewisburg), Jordan Ross (Vandalia) and Courtney Stoll (Eaton).
