In the theater, everyone plays a role, everyone has a secret.
When Adam’s friends dare him to spend a night alone in a haunted theater they joke that he might not make it through the night. “Don’t let the ghost of old Tom Stilton get you,” they laugh and lock the door.
The following morning, Adam is dead.
Kath Cherry has trouble on her hands. The leading man in the Goose Meadow Bay Players’ next production has been murdered leaving the show without a romantic lead. The theater ghost is the prime suspect until Kath notices a drop of blood in the depths of the orchestra pit. Of course, there’s no knowing what musicians get up to down there, but Kath has her suspicions.
In this cozy mystery set in the mad, crazy world of community theater, Kath not only needs to find out who has murdered the show’s main love interest, but calm the nerves of the rest of the cast, keep the theater ghost under control, take the helm when the director jumps ship, and find a new leading man.
Can Kath discover the killer, or is the murderer rewriting the script for her too?
