3.13.20 After careful consideration, and a desire to ensure the health and safety of everyone who engages with the GREAT Theatre, we have made the difficult decision to cancel the remaining performances of Ahoy! Murder! Dead Ahead!  Please see most recent COVID 19 update here


CONTENT ADVISORY: This locally written, original play includes crude comedy, vulgar humor, swearing and sexual innuendo and is described by some as “over the top” and not typical of GREAT. We respect that every individual has a taste for art that is unique to them and work to provide diverse offerings for our community. Please contact our office if you would like to exchange or refund your tickets for this production due to content.  Thank you.

AHOY THERE! And welcome aboard! Spend the evening in the ballroom of an extravagant cruise ship that is bound for an exotic northern location…. Experience the high seas, help rename the ship and prepare yourself for MURDER in the funniest way possible! You will be immersed in this hilarious murder mystery comedy filled with lots of Minnesotan references and jokes, written and directed by local theatre artist Heather Mastromarco. Enjoy mingling with boisterous characters and shady suspects. A sea captain with no sense of direction, a cruise director involved in scandalous love affairs, a phantom thespian, rivals, mystery passengers….is blood thicker than sea water? Scandals, and Treasures, and Murders, OH MY!! Could everyone really be who they say they are?? See if you can decipher who the murderer is.

But Wait! You can’t solve a murder on an empty stomach! Dinner includes salad, parmesan encrusted chicken, green beans, garlic whipped potatoes, and white chocolate raspberry torte dessert.

Original play written by Heather Mastromarco
