Nanaimo’s Western Edge Theatre takes a turn for the mysterious, hilarious, and delicious on Oct. 28th with "Murder is Only Skin Deep," a murder mystery dinner where the audience will get in on solving the crime. 

A fundraiser for Western Edge, "Murder is Only Skin Deep" is the perfect pre-Hallowe’en outing. And what could be more appropriate for an evening of dinner theatre than a mystery set at the Miss World Food Group Beauty Pageant? 

The pageant is a glamorous event -- but someone will not live to see the winner receive her crown. 

Whodunnit? Is the murderer hidden behind a swim suit or a tuxedo? Columbo is on the case and if anyone is hiding something behind a pretty smile, he’ll find out. Or will someone else in the room prove to be the master detective? 

Written and directed by Western Edge Theatre artistic director Brian March, "Murder is Only Skin Deep" features Devon Cathers, Brian March, Barbara Metcalf, Erik Tully, Maureen O’Connor – and the audience, doing its part to catch the bad guy, or gal. Audience members may optionally arrive dressed for the theme. March suggests “fancy dress, or anything food related.” 

Subscribers to Western Edge Theatre’s 2017-18 mainstage season, opening Nov. 24th with the premiere of "Run in Fields," may include the fundraiser in their subscription and pay just $35. Subscribers also save over 20% on the cost of individual tickets to all mainstage shows, are admitted free to the next installment of the company's popular Plays & Pie series, and avoid additional processing fees. 

Subscriptions are on sale at or by phone at 250-816-6459. Flex-passes, allowing tickets to be combined in various ways, are also available at the same discount. 

Western Edge Theatre’s 2017-18 season is generously supported by its business sponsor, Romper Room Indoor Rock Climbing Centre, media sponsor The Nanaimo News-Bulletin, and printing sponsor InPrint. It is also made possible by The City of Nanaimo and the Province of BC.
