Liturgical Murder Mystery Theater
Date: September 16, 2010
Time: 6:30pm dinner, 7:30pm program
Location: Christ Lutheran Church
Address: 9212 Taylorsville Road

Comments:Following a potluck dinner and officer installation, musician and author Mark Schweizer hosted a unique and hilarious program. Mr. Schweizer is an organist and mystery author of several musically-themed humor books including 'The Alto Wore Tweed', 'The Baritone Wore Chiffon' and 'The Organist Wore Pumps'. With narration Mr. Schweizer, chapter members played the roles of suspects in a story about the untimely demise of a talented organist played by David McNease (who is very much alive). It certainly puts a twist on the 'who-done-it' genre.
