The cast of Murder at the Pie Auction performs at 7 p.m. Friday, Nov. 18, and Saturday, Nov. 19, in the Benjamin Logan High School auditorium.
The production is directed by Myles Bowers and Maggie Bowlby.
After years of trying unsuccessfully, the small town of Mynute, Alaska, finally lands the famous Mother Mabel’s Pie Baking Competition — but it was all due to a typo mistaking “Mynute” for “Minot.”
The contest looks to be a disaster, with no media or publicity. To add to the tension, one of the contestants is writing a tell-all book about the seamy side of competitive pie baking.
Making matters even worse, just hours before the competition begins, the pie judge goes missing. When he turns up dead while the audience is bidding for the pies, the characters turn on each other as they try to figure out who committed the murder.
A limited number of homemade pies will be auctioned for the audience. Admission is $7; tickets available online at https://hs.benjaminlogan.org/
