Friday show: Can you solve the murder at the senior center?

Mystery and murder comes to the Shelton Senior Center with the annual performance written by Amanda Marrone.

The Friends of the Shelton Libraries features Marrone’s Murder Takes the Cake Friday, Oct. 17, 6 p.m. at the senior center, 81 Meadow Street.

Marrone is from Shelton. Her play features actors from the city. The murder will happen before the buffet-style dinner, which allows discussion and guesses on who the murderer was. Those who guess the murderer correctly can win a prize.

The catered dinner is from Trattoria Roma and diners may bring their own bottles. During dinner, the actors will lay out the drama and leave the diners to debate the clues. Prizes will be offered to those who select the murderer.

Ticket are $30 per person; arrange a table with your friends to up the ante. Tickets are on sale now at both Plumb Memorial Library, Huntington Branch Library and the Friends website (
