A host of Bathurst's talented young theatre performers will take the stage at Keystone this weekend as part of Carillion Junior Theatrical Society's [CJTS] murder mystery showcase.
The CJTS performers will bring two thought-provoking murder mysteries to life: Murder at the Music Hall [performed by junior members] and The Scramblings at Spriggly Torch [performed by high school members].
CJTS director Bronwyn Colley said the two performances will provide audiences with intriguing mysteries to mull over.
"Both plays are highly comedic, and are sure to provide plenty of entertainment value for audiences," Ms Colley said.
"The kids have worked very hard to bring the plays to life, and they will portray a colourful host of rather distinct characters."
The event will feature musical accompaniments from Liam Gildea, who Ms Colley said is a prominent member of CJTS' musical theatre component.
"Liam will be starring in our upcoming production of Chitty Chitty Bang Bang later in the year, so it'll be a great chance to see him in action," Ms Colley said.
Ms Colley said it'll be great to see CJTS members back performing for an audience again after a year of disruption due to COVID restrictions.
"They did one round of performances near the end of last year but due to COVID rules, they were only able to perform for their parents," she said.
"The kids always love performing at Keystone, and can't wait to invite the public back."
The event will run for three showings this week: Friday and Saturday from 6pm and Sunday from 11am for a matinee performance.
"We encourage audience members to bring their own nibblies, and drinks will be available from the bar," Ms Colley said.
Admission costs $22 for adults, $18 for concession/pensioners and $10 for students under 18. Children under five get in for free.
