This lively combination of uproarious comedy and terrifying murder mystery revolves around the uncanny resemblance between escaped convict Tony and recent bridegroom Prescott (both played by the same actor). Newlywed Ashley’s desperate attempt to figure out who is the real murderer is sometimes helped and sometimes hindered by her golf-fanatic grandfather and a mysterious visiting attorney named Muriel. As the suspense mounts and the violence intensifies, Ashley slips into increasing hysteria, Muriel discovers the murderer’s evil agenda, and Grandpa, drawing upon an unsuspected hidden reserve of inner strength, fine-tunes his stroke.

$15 reserved seating, $10 opening night. First Saturday is a fundraiser for Hemet Woman’s Club. Black-Eyed Susan, or All in the Downs is a comic play in three acts by the father of nautical melodrama, Douglas Jerrold. The drama revolves around William, a sailor who returns to England after fighting in the Napoleonic Wars for three years. He finds that his wife, Susan, has fallen on hard times and is being harassed by her cruel landlord and uncle, Doggrass. She is also being pursued by the smuggler Hatchett, who devises a plan to falsely inform Susan that William is dead so that he can make advances upon her himself. Music will be interwoven within the production for this sure to be a crowd pleaser. (951) 658-5300. [website]
