Right Time for Murder

The famous mystery novel Right Time for Murder is being presented for the first time onstage. The author, Evan Carmichael, finds himself entangled in a chaotic, yet elegant event where actors quit before the show, the stage manager is having a nervous breakdown, and the publicist is just plain cruel.  All antics and craziness aside, Right Time for Murder unfolds into a tight-knit murder mystery from the 1920s. Done as a play within a play, we see what truth really means or if it’s all just fiction.

Performances of this dinner theatre murder mystery will be presented by Acting Out Kids at Kirk in the Hills:

Friday, March 22 at 7 pm

Saturday, March 23 at 7 pm

Sunday, March 24 at 6 pm

Tickets are $18.00 and include a full dinner. They are available at the Hunter Community Center in Clawson, on Eventbrite, or by contacting This is a family-friendly event but may not be suitable for children ages 5 and younger.
