"The show is based on the movie from 1985 with Tim Curry, Madeline Kahn, Martin Mull, just some amazing comedians. And it really wasn't a hit in 1985. People, they didn't really know about it, they didn't really go, but it's become a cult classic, you can watch it on Amazon Prime and anywhere now, and it's just become a movie where people go back to when they want to see just some amazing comedians, you know, navigate a murder mystery, and it's some famous lines. We're really excited to do this new adaptation. They keep, this work itself, they keep sort of changing it every year. They're trying to get it to a point where I think they might take it on a national tour, this production, and so we're really fortunate to be able to do this project."

The production runs through Sunday. Tickets are available by contacting the box office at 332-7773 or by emailing boxoffice@okobojisummertheatre.org.

Also, the first production of the season at the Boji Bantam Children's Theatre opens Wednesday. Ruth Ann Burke, Executive Director of Okoboji Summer Theatre, says they're working in collaboration with one of their neighbors...RuthAnn Burke03
