Upcoming Shows


March 21-23, 2019

Ah yes, good ol’ Hollywood.  A place where dreams come true.  Forget the dreams, it’s actually the nightmares that concern us.  In Murder on the Movie Set, the audience plays extras on a 1940s movie set where things go terribly wrong during rehearsal for the restaurant scene.  VERY wrong.  The list of suspects is unique, and not in a way one might think. Was it the frazzled director, the hunky leading man, the ditzy starlet, the aging diva, or her flamboyant, sharp-tongued wardrobe master? Hollywood will never be the same again! This show is rated PG-13 for some mild adult themes.




April 11-12, 2019

The born-into-money Mrs. Mary Astor-Turf has been receiving messages from the great beyond! Her long-deceased grandfather has been trying to send messages to her from the afterlife, and she enlists the help of a renowned and eccentric psychic medium to help channel his communication to her in any way she can come up with. But alas, everyone Mary knows thinks she is crazy, and wants to put her wealth to good use – their own – especially her unfaithful husband Teddy and his deceitful mistress. Heck, even her own brother wants a cut of the dough! We look forward to seeing you at the seance. This show is rated PG-13 for mild adult themes.



May 10-11, 2019

Experience the disruption of that seemingly ignorant bliss lived by those lovely ladies residing on Hysteria Lane as the trio of “housewives” – Summer, Chastity and Janet – uncover the murder of their dear neighbor, who is killed in her own basement! The girls are in need of so much help, they’re… well, desperate! They’re going to need more than the police to uncover this mystery; they’re going to need YOU!   They may even discover someone in the room who looks just like Mary Ruth and use her to contact their deceased friend from beyond the grave. Never underestimate a housewife, because one never knows… she may be just deadly! This show is rated R for adult themes.  NOT for children.



June 21-22, 2019

All handsome, eligible Dirk Dagwell wanted was a bride, so off to cable access TV he went to be the latest schmuck on the morally bankrupt show How to Marry a Millionaire. It’s star – tacky host Remus Philbrick who would have been a better fit as a greasy nightclub comic on a cruise ship in 1972.  The “lovely” bachelorettes invited onto the show to fight to win themselves a millionaire are Tanya, (who got on the sexy line twice and bypassed the brains line altogether); Carleen, (been there, shot that); and Darma (sweetie-perfection is annoying).  Who will he choose to be his bride? And will it be the last choice he ever makes? Come join in the fun; maybe even be a part of the show. This show is rated PG-13.  Kid friendly!




NOTE:  The Murder and a Meal series is not a production of Arizona Broadway Theatre.
