A benefit dinner and show has been planned to raise money for US Academic Triathlon. A musical comedy written by founder Peggy Sheldon will be staged March 11 & 12 in Northfield, MN. Doors open at 6 p.m., with door prizes, a four-course dinner, a murder mystery Quiz, and a one-liner contest.
The Roaring 20s provides the glamorous backdrop for this interactive musical show. “Somebody has knocked off a notorious socialite and painted her face orange! Whodunit?” is the plot for the show.
‘The Case of the Tawdry Tabloid’ will keep you entertained as you check out the suspects and solve the crime. Enjoy the Speakeasy, the music, and the disaster of a detective who thinks he’s Groucho Marx as he tackles this hilarious homicide,” says the playwright.
“After writing more than 25 years of P.A.R.T.Y. in a Box scenarios, I thought it was about time I tried my hand at finishing an entire play!”
Peggy Sheldon says. “And I love the old-time music we’re using; but I’ve written new lyrics to fit the unique characters.”

Northfield, MN, is about 20 miles south of the Twin Cities, just off Interstate 35.
