Written by Kurt Kleinmann
Directed by Michael Serrecchia
Presented in Living Black & White™
Previews December 29-30, 2016
December 31, 2015-January 22, 2016
At the Charles W. Eisemann Center in Richardson
This December and January, join us for a brand new family-friendly Harry Hunsacker adventure, presented (of course) in Living Black & White™! This time, the setting is a hospital where Lt. Foster’s wife (Beverly, a.k.a. Bubbles) has just given birth to their first child, Harriet.
But danger lurks around every corner! Our intrepid trio (Harry, his paid-by-the-hour assistant Nigel Grouse, and Lt. Foster of the “real” police) must solve a mysterious string of murders before a madman claims one of their own. With Harry on the case, it should be “child’s play”!
Ben Bryant and Chad Cline return in their roles as Nigel Grouse and Lt. Foster, respectively. Scott Nixon returns in the role of Harry Hunsacker, this time performing that role at all scheduled performances.
