 Murder Mystery Evenings – Friday 7th and Saturday 8th April 2017, at St Peter’s Hall Cranbourne,

 “Murder at Politana’s”, : Created in an Italian restaurant setting, a meal will be served as part of the ticket price, as guests/audience members try to work out ‘whodunnit’.

Three course meal provided with murder mystery at CADS April production

Murder at Politana’s  is an interactive murder mystery, set in an Italian restaurant, which the audience – or are they the restaurant customers? -  is invited to solve while enjoying a 3-course meal included in the price of a ticket.  A fun evening is guaranteed, courtesy of Cranbourne Amateur Dramatic Society. 

Popular with both the local residents and the passing tourists, Politana’s is the place for a romantic meal for two or trendy dining with friends. Within its walls homemade pasta is combined with excellent local produce, and customers are assured of experiencing the most wonderful and delightful flavours associated with Italy during their meal.

Passion is at the heart of the Italian people, and Politana’s is a passionate establishment, passionate about food, passionate about quality and passionate about the customers it serves.

Unfortunately, this evening the customers at Politana’s are also witnesses to the ultimate crime of passion – murder. The question is: can they solve the crime by the end of the night?

The Spotlights (SSC)Spotlights Musical Theatre Group (originally named The Sunningdale Savoy Chorus) is THE local group for those wishing to take part in amateur musical theatre.

We were founded in 1991 originally to perform the works of Gilbert and Sullivan but now, every July, we perform shows that span the whole range. Our recent productions include Kiss Me Kate, Orpheus in the Underworld, Annie Get Your Gun and Pajama Game. We top and tail our main show with an autumn concert in October and a Christmas concert in December. The Rose Theatre at St Mary’s School Ascot is the normal venue for our annual big production.

We rehearse on Monday evenings at Cheapside Village Hall at 8pm and we’re always on the lookout for new onstage and backstage members. You’ll find us a friendly and welcoming bunch of about 40 who, as well as performing together, enjoy an annual BBQ and a Christmas meal as part of our social calendar. Plus, of course, essential visits to a local hostelry post rehearsal!

Due to the small, friendly atmosphere members are actively encouraged to take roles in our productions - we like to keep it in house as much as possible. We also manage the whole production ourselves - nobody is left out - and if wives, friends or partners are left at home they are soon encouraged to volunteer into one of the many important backstage or front of house roles.

So if you are looking to extend your social life somewhat and can hold a tune (we take both budding Pavarotti’s and bathroom mirror entertainers), act or want to help in any way please contact our Secretary, Sheila Knight on

Or why don’t you just turn up to a rehearsal on a Monday night.

 You will be made most welcome! See you soon.
