Capital Chordettes Presents
Musical Murder Mystery Dinner Theater
Hair Today Dead Tomorrow
Many of you know that the Capital Chordettes Ladies Barbershop Chorus support Children at Risk with an annual donation in December - BUT – in celebration of their 50th Year, they are planning events throughout this year – the next one coming up allows a percentage of the funds raised to come directly BACK to Children at Risk, so we encourage as many of you to attend, if you can! Please see the attached poster or info below for this exciting Murder/Mystery Dinner Theatre production of “Hair Today, Dead Tomorrow” on Friday, June 7th and Saturday, June 8th!
Hope you can come!!
Visit our web site for more information about the Capital Chordettes.

HAIR TODAY - DEAD TOMORROW – Synopsis
As part of its celebration of 50 years of entertaining Ottawa audiences, the award-winning Capital Chordettes present a Musical Murder Mystery Dinner Event. The story unfolds around preparations for an upcoming wedding. The groom’s snooty, upper crust family meets the bride’s unrefined, ragtag kin at a beauty salon where they have been double-booked. With these mutually contemptuous families thrust together, much chaos and hilarity ensues.
See if you can solve the murder mystery, while dining on a delicious, multi-course meal provided by the outstanding chefs of Algonquin College catering.
