Polter-Heist cast and crew

Take a walk on the spooky side when Sun Lakes

Community Theatre presents Polter-Heist, an audience participation murder mystery. This talented cast and crew have been working under direction of director Sandy Pallett and assistant director Grace Geisinger, and are looking forward to giving you a totally fun evening. The action takes place at The Mouldering Pines Inn,

where the Bogeyman Outreach Organization (BOO), a support group for ghosts, is holding its annual convention.

As a dinner guest at the convention you will be seeing and hearing clues as this mystery unfolds while enjoying a delicious meal of Chicken Parmesan. Throughout the dinner you have an opportunity to try to guess “who done it.” At the end of the show, if you are among the lucky ones who can identify the murderer (yes, there will be a murder) and the motive, you will have an opportunity to win a really nice prize. Polter-Heist will run from October 22-October 26 at the

following questions: what factors in the character of these biblical greats – Adam and Eve, Noah, Abraham and Sara, Moses, and David — made them extraordinary in the eyes of God? Did any of them disappoint God? Were any of them fl awed? If so, how did they overcome those fl aws, and rise to greatness? What factors in their conduct infl uenced the manner in which God’s nation, Israel, evolved? How did the “great ones” react to God’s will? As they implemented God’s plans, what was it about them that made them heroes of the Bible? What lessons can we learn from them to apply to our own spiritual lives? Come and fi nd out the answers to these questions. We hope you will be inspired to join us

for one, or both, of these very informative seminars. You can register for these classes, or get more information by calling the church offi ce at 480-895-4766. 
