We’re MAD. Come round to Our House

A HALLOWEEN murder mystery night in Bridport proved a marvellous success for the town’s newest amateur dramatics group.

Marvellous Amateur Dramatics (MAD) cast became movie producers, directors and stars for the evening as they turned St Mary’s Church Hall into the wrap party of their latest horror flick “I’m your number one fang”.

Guests were entertained by an evening of improvised performance, on Saturday night, and then used their sleuthing skills to try and uncover the murderer in the line up.

Top detective on the night was Paul Cosser, who correctly deduced that production company boss Don Canelloni (Tom Glover), had been behind the deaths of both Gracie Dullard (Jasmine Northover) and Carla Di Lucci (Lauren Antinoro).

Also starring in the show were Ben Kapur and Zuzka Aukett as hot shot director Sam Wannital and his author wife Ivana, Roy Bowskill as former star Rex Bannister and Callam Thom as young director Nick Noble.

The group raised £150 to help fund their first Bridport Show Our House, which will be at the Electric Palace next spring.

Organisers thanked everyone who came and took part as well as everybody who volunteered their time to make the evening a success.
