Oklahoma Baptist University's College Players continues its presentation this week of "The Real Inspector Hound," a comedic "whodunit" production depicting a murder mystery and the unique characters left to figure it out. The play will be presented Nov. 21 and 22 at 7:30 p.m., and Nov. 23 at 2:30 p.m., with all performances in OBU's Craig-Dorland Theatre located in Shawnee Hall.
In this one-act comedy, a dead body is found at Muldoon Manor in Essex, the radio announces a madman is on the loose, and soon Inspector Hound shows up at the scene of the crime. But is he the real Inspector Hound? The play is a satire of the murder mystery genre using over-the-top characters found in classic comedies such as the Carol Burnett show, Saturday Night Live, or MadTV.
"The Real Inspector Hound" cast includes Shawnee resident Clint Cannon; Troy Ford, a sophomore from Wagner, Okla.; Daniel Lay, a senior from Boise City, Okla., Austin Ledbetter, a junior from Daytona Beach, Fla.; Rachel Raney, a freshman from Tecumseh, Okla.; Kate Rutledge, a senior from Carrollton, Texas; Eric Strimple, a senior from Bartlesville, Okla.; and Kendra Watkins, a junior from Meeker, Okla.
Tickets can be purchased by calling the OBU Box Office at (405) 878-2347 or visiting the box office located in OBU's Sarkeys Telecommunication Center. Tickets are $8 for adults, $6 for students and $5 for children age 12 and younger. Some material may not be appropriate for young children.
