Enjoy Dinner Theater and Support Local Youth

The King's Players, a drama ministry at King of Glory Lutheran Church in Williamsburg, invites you to join them for a special murder mystery dinner theater entitled "What a Sweet Way to Go" for the benefit of the King of Glory High School Youth Group as they prepare to attend the Lutheran National Youth Gathering in New Orleans, Louisiana this summer.

With more than 50 young people headed for the Big Easy, plus their adult chaperons, fund raising has been a challenge. The youth have held numerous events over the past year to raise money for a general fund that will help support any members of the group whose family cannot afford the costs of the trip. All proceeds from the dinner theater will be donated to this fund. For this special dinner theater, members of the youth group will serve as the wait staff and kitchen assistants for the evening.

The show is set in New Orleans on the sugar plantation of the La Fontaine family, now the site of a massive corn syrup factory. Delta La Fontaine Magnusson is about to assume the mantle of CEO of her late husband's company, Magnum Private Industries. But not everyone seems happy about Delta's new position. Murder, mystery, and mayhem are on the menu as the audience becomes part of the show and tries to figure out who has committed a horrible crime. Guests who correctly identify the culprit will be entered into a drawing for a pair of tickets to the next King's Players production.

"What a Sweet Way to Go" is a production of the King's Players and will be presented on Friday May 20, Saturday May 21, and Sunday May 22 at 5:30pm. Tickets are $30 per person and must be reserved by May 18. A table of 8 seats may be reserved for $200. Cash, check or credit cards accepted. To reserve your seats, please contact Kelly with the King's Players at (757) 253-7860 or via email at kingsplayers.kog@gmail.com. King of Glory Lutheran Church is located at 4897 Longhill Road in Williamsburg, Virginia.
