One event is the Community Alliance for Stage and Theatre production of “Southern Fried Murder” at the Olive Tree restaurant in Hiram at 7 p.m. Tickets are $36 and include the meal, gratuity and the play.
The play is about a matriarch of a family calling all of her relatives together to discuss her will. When she is murdered, the heirs hunt for her fortune while deciphering her will, according to a news release from the alliance.
This is the second time the group has performed this play — producing it before in 2001, said director and alliance president Kevin Kincheloe.
Kincheloe originally connected with the group when he assisted with a one-act play festival in 1992.
“I’ve always been primarily focusing as a director,” he said.
Since then he has either acted in or directed a number of full-length productions, Kincheloe said.
“I decided I would try to make it a regular gig,” he said.
The show opened Feb. 16 at the Villa Rica location of the Olive Tree and did well, he said.
