SYNOPSIS: The 30-year reunion of Broken-Rattan High School takes a dramatic turn when former cheerleaders and sisters, Hollandaise and Bernaise Soss, plan a killer reunion aboard the cruise ship, Thanatos. Dressed in their old cheerleading uniforms, they invite the audience to sing along with the hideous Broken-Rattan fight song. At the royalty dance, featuring the senior king and queen, Steve and Valene, someone almost kills Steve with a poison dart intended for Valene. It becomes evident that the killer on board is seeking revenge against all of the popular people of Broken-Rattan. Accusations fly, petty jealousies resurface, and old grudges are renewed. Murder Ahoy is fast-paced, filled with outrageous characters and lines, and has several opportunities for audience involvement.

"This play was used for our yearly Dinner Theatre fund raiser. The actors have participated in the play for several years and loved this play. The humor was great and the set was very easy to create. We had many positive reviews from the audience and had people calling for tickets after hearing the reviews from people who attended. The names of the cast just made everyone laugh."
By Ann Schultz - Co-Chairman of the Play - Junior Woman's Club of Hilton Village
Thirty years later, passions boil over, old grudges are renewed, and murder is in the air. Aboard the S.S. Thanatos (that's Greek for "death") the graduates of Broken Rattan High celebrate their thirtieth reunion, and it's going to be a killer cruise. This is a great dinner theater show, filled with outrageous characters, sight gags,and puns that you'll get several lines after hearing them. This is a funny, funny show. One of my favorite, cheesiest lines? I shot the Shar Pei, but I did not shoot Depardee.
