RHPlayers opens for the season with Out of Sight, Out of Murder.

Author Peter Knight is grinding out a murder story in an old mansion where another author was murdered years before. A weird electrical storm effects a cosmic snafu, bringing his fictional characters to life – including a lovely ingenue, the faithful butler, a dauntless hero, a hapless serving girl, the wily lawyer and others – all waiting for midnight to read a will.

Peter loses control of his characters and learns a murder is in the works…and he is the intended victim! Can Peter find the killer before the killer gets his author?

Dates: April 20th-23 & 27-30,2017
