A "season on location" goes out with a bang as Texas Woman's University presents a hilarious evening of
mystery and mayhem in a dinner theatre production of Rupert Holmes' ACCOMPLICE.  Dinner performances are April 15 and 16 at 7:00 p.m. and April 17 at 21:00 p.m. at Metropolitan Catering, 932 W. University in Denton.  General admission is $25 and includes dinner and performance.  Student specials are available at $15 for dinner and performance, or $5 for performance only.  Beer and wine will be available at no additional cost.  Reservations are required.  For reservations, call 940-898-2020.

Directed by Veronica Parrish-McGruder, ACCOMPLICE combines farce and intrigue for an evening of plot twists that both baffle and delight.  Holmes' masterful use of illusion puts even the savviest of sleuths to the test, daring the audience to sort out an ever-changing puzzle and solve one of the most intricate mysteries to hit the stage since Agatha Christie.  With murder, infidelity, and downright deception at every turn, Holmes' witty and outlandish characters weave a tight web of laughter and suspense from which no one can escape.  So wildly entertaining are the details of ACCOMPLICE's conspiratorial plot that even the cast and crew are sworn to secrecy!

Cast of ACCOMPLICE includes Ben Derby, Lindsay Huntoon, Brad McEntire, and Sherrie Wollenhaupt.  The
mystery of ACCOMPLICE doesn't stop with the action.  Jaymes Gregory's quaint scenic design features surprises of its own, as do Joshua Scott Hancock's costumes.  Add crisp lighting design by Tom Stratton and Frances
Seman, tricky properties by Dennis Sloan, and mystifying sound design by Kari Schouveller, and the puzzle is complete.  Production staff also includes Stage Manager Reginald Peters and Assistant Stage Manager YharNahKeeShah Smith. 

Rupert Holmes is best known for the hit song “Escape (The Pina Colada Song)” and the Tony Award-winning musical, THE MYSTERY OF EDWIN DROOD.  A devilishly clever comedy-thriller, ACCOMPLICE was produced to critical acclaim on Broadway (starring Jason Alexander and Michael McKean) in 1990 and has enjoyed numerous regional productions.  ACCOMPLICE has appeared worldwide, including productions in Greece, Finland, Sri
Lanka, and on the London stage.  ACCOMPLICE has been honored with an “Edgar Award” by The Mystery Writers of America and a Dramalogue Award for Best Play.
