A first of its kind event is coming to the Clinton community on Friday.
Mike Lovett indicates he is hosting a murder mystery dinner theater at The Abagail in Clinton. Lovett says he was inspired by dinner theater shows on the East Coast and decided to try it in central Illinois.
Lovett had tremendous support from the community so far. Love It Once More, Ophelia's, Clintonia Eagle Theatre, Coffee Corner, and the YMCA have all sponsored prizes to be given out at the end of the night. He wanted to create a collaborative effort among local businesses.
Eight actors from the community involved in the show. The dinner is worked into the plot of the show, and Lovett points out the show is very interactive with the audience.
Lovett indicates the show is soldout and believes it is due to the small business aspect of the event. He indicates watch the Abagail's Facebook page for details about future murder mystery dinners.
