Hi everyone,
Sorry for the delay. There were some script revisions that I wanted to wait on in case they changed any casting decisions. I know it seems like I say this every time, but this truly was one of the hardest shows to cast, because our turnout for this Murder Mystery was greater than ever before–particularly our wonderful ladies. You will find the cast list below, alongside the updated schedule.

I would love any of you who were not cast to be a part of this process still if you’d like to be– helping with costumes, as prompter, as waitstaff, or assisting with the production in general. Just let me know if you are interested and we will find the best spot for you.

I am so grateful for the love and time you all pour into Cotton Hall.

Thanks so much,
