Rogue Theater Spoofs “Casablanca” in Newest Show

Get out your lucky hat, because Rogue Theater is about to perform a mystery dinner show that spoofs the movie Casablanca and the American dream of winning the jackpot.

Penned by Tony Schwartz and Marylou Ambrose, the show, Dealt a Deadly Hand: Murder at the Pocono Royale Casino, takes place at Rick’s club, the first legal gambling casino in the Poconos. Rick dreams of striking it rich – then two Native Americans try to claim the land and his gold-digging ex-wife Lola shows up. Throw in a two-faced lawyer, an Australian Croc Chaser with bad luck, and two little old ladies on a gambling mission, and “making a killing” takes on a whole new meaning. This is an audience participation murder mystery. The audience should keep their eyes and ears open to solve the crime.

The first performance is Jan. 27 at the Door County Fire Company, 38 S. Third Ave., Sturgeon Bay. Doors open at 5:30 pm. Mingle and enjoy a cocktail before dinner is served at 6:30 pm. The show starts after dinner. This performance is a fundraiser event for the Legal Aid Society of Door County. Tickets the dinner show are $35. Seating is limited; call 920.495.6314 for reservations.

The second and final performance is Jan. 28, 2 pm at Rogue Theater, 340 Jaycee Ct., Sturgeon Bay. Tickets are $10. For more information, call 920.818.0816 or visit
