Picture it – Parlor City, late 1940’s- Nick Holliday (Mark Creamer) is a hard-boiled private investigator. He takes a case, a murder investigation which leaves a teenaged girl (Skylar Secord) wondering who is responsible for her sister’s murder. In the course of the investigation, Holliday (Creamer) has dealings with the law (Caleb Park), Parlor City’s underworld (Paul Thomson, David Schmidt), and some other interesting characters (Alex Creamer, Emma Studt). Though the investigation threatens the lives of many, Holliday and his office manager/sidekick Dora Chase (Heather Jurchak) are determined to get to the bottom of it. Written by EMTC’s own published playwright, David Schmidt, this play promises to provide its share of laughter as well as intrigue. Catch it this weekend at the Great Bend VFW Post #6223, Saturday at 7:00 pm, and Sunday at 3:00 pm. Cash bar opens one hour before each performance, with light fare. All for the low price of $12.00.

The play is under the direction of Caleb Park. Sarita Farnelli appears as ‘Puck,’ the merry servant of the fairy king, Oberon (Bob DeLuca).
