We attended the FIRST, in Merida and in English - they think, Murder Mystery Dinner Theatre performance of Love Kills! yesterday.
We had a great good time and sincerely hope that this continues.
The event was a fund raiser for 2 local charities; one is AMANC AC, and the other is for Evolucion AC. AMANC provides direct help to almost four thousand children suffering with cancer, and their families. Evolucion is an animal protection organization that shelters, cares for, and finds homes for dogs of Mérida.
I can't even imagine the amount of work each of the volunteers put in to make this happen but they did a fabulous job.
The audience had a great time, there was lots of participation, more by some than others, and the surprise ending, but I'm sworn to secrecy on that as there are 4 more shows.
Big applause to Jill Benson, the brain trust behind the idea, the Writer, and the Director! It is a fabulous idea and story, she is truly awesome!
I also feel a need to single out Hennessey's Sean and Colm who provided the space, arranged the meal service, and paid for their staff to be at our beck and call, in addition they served and cleared tables during the meal service portions of the event. You guys ROCK!
From the actors to the backstage staff - Thank you all
for all you did!
Great Job - Standing Applause to all of you!
The tickets sold out quickly for this event, so when the chat starts about the next one, and there will be a next one you better get in line! I've already committed to 2 tickets for whatever they do!
and now, some photos!
