-AUDITIONS!: "Anne of Green Gables." Auditions for this beautiful, family-friendly musical version of the beloved novel will be held on Oct. 16 and 17 at 6 PM at St. John's Episcopal Church in Murray (1620 W. Main St.). Roles for males and females ages 12-60!

Dessert Cabaret! Playhouse in the Park presents another round of a longtime community favorite, the classic Dessert Cabarets on the Deck from October 6-8. Local talent from the area will come together to perform in a slightly different twist on the traditional Dessert Cabaret setting. The cabaret has an acoustic theme: all vocals and instrumentation will be performed live, and each set will last approximately 25 minutes. The show is directed by Donald Fleming. Showtimes are Friday & Saturday at 7:00, and Sunday at 2:30. Playhouse asks for a suggested minimum donation of $8. Tickets are not available on the website, and seating on the deck is limited. To help ensure there are enough desserts, please call the Playhouse at 270-759-1752 to let them know you’re coming.

Can murder possibly be funny? Only when three goofy bunglers give it their all. Paul and Arlene Miller's marriage is a bit, shall we say, on the rocks, and so she and her lover, Dr. Mitch Lavell, a dentist with lust and murder in his heart, conspire to do away with Paul. When that fails, Paul and Arlene plot to do away with Mitch, and when that fails, the boys scheme to take out Arlene. But don't worry, nobody gets hurt, except the audience, from laughing so hard! Don't miss the hilarious fun! Click "Show Details" below to view cast list
