IVT Presents Postmortem
Make a "mystery" date to see Indian Valley Theatre's latest production, Postmortem. It's a great way to support a local organization and enjoy a great meal and wonderful entertainment from local actors.
Postmortem is a fun, witty and suspenseful mystery. It has all the elements you've come to love and expect from the IVT Dinner Theatre: bigger than life characters, witty dialogue, brain-teasing plot twisters, a little bit of romance, a little bit of scandal and a whole lot of excitement!
Our story revolves around the famous actor William Gillette, best known in the 1920s for his theatrical portrayal of Sherlock Holmes. Gillette has invited the current cast of his latest Broadway revival of Sherlock Holmes to his castle for the weekend, including longtime company members, the troupe’s ingénues, Gillette’s Aunt Lilly and a surprise guest, who has planned a séance for entertainment. It soon becomes apparent someone is trying to murder Gillette and he deduces that it must be one of his guests.
