RASA’s “The Butler Did It” modifies production dates to July 9-13

Posted in Rushford Arts & Culture

Rushford Area Society of the Arts Community Theater production of, “The Butler Did It”, written by Tim Kelly, will be held a week earlier this year than in the past. It will NOT be held during Rushford Day’s Celebration. The production will be held July 9, 10, 11, 12, & 13 at the Rushford Peterson High School Theater. Casting summer plays has become a challenge for the RASA Board and we would not have been able to cast the play during the celebration week due to lack of talent available.

Miss Maple, the dowager of the estate, with a reputation for “clever” weekend parties, is played by Anita Wilson. Her maid Haversham, is played by Kristin Burdey, and the housekeeper Rita, is played by Stephanie Roberton. Detective writers who are invited to Miss Maple’s secluded mansion for a murder mystery party, come to impersonate their fictional characters. They are played by actors, Joel Hulsing, Matthew Rodenburg, Bert Svendsen, Steven Burdey, Chris Hallum and Nancy Svendsen. Joel Klungtvedt rounds out this fun cast. Kathleen Bryant of St. Mary’s University is directing this comedy parody of every English mystery play ever written.

In RASA’s “The Butler Did It” the hostess has arranged all sorts of amusing incidents: a mysterious voice on the radio, a menacing face at the window, a mad killer on the loose. Who is that body in the wine cellar anyway? Why do little figurines keep toppling from the mantle? Then a real murder takes place, and Miss Maple is outraged. She offers a huge reward to the “detective” who can bring the killer to justice. What an assortment of zany would-be sleuths! When they’re not busy tripping over clues, they trip over each other! Laughs collide with thrills, and the climax is a real seat-grabber as the true killer is unmasked, and almost everyone turns out to be someone else!

The play will be here soon. You can get your tickets at Rushford Foods in advance for $9, or at the door for $12. July 9, 10, 11, and 12 will be evening performances at 7:30 p.m. and the July 13th performance will be at 3 p.m. All performances take place in the Rushford Peterson High School Theater.

This performance of “The Butler Did It” is presented by the Rushford Area Society of the Arts (RASA) in cooperation with the Southeastern Minnesota Arts Council, Inc. through funding from the Minnesota State Legislature.
