Black Swamp Players played to a sold-out house for our one-night-only production of Murder at the Pie Auction on October 18. Ticket sales for the event raised nearly $1,700, with an audience of 120.

A comedy by Michael Druce, Murder at the Pie Auction focuses on a zany group of professional and amateur pie bakers who come together for the famous Mother Mabel’s Annual Pie Baking Competition. The show also features audience participation in the form of a live pie auction.

BSP Board members and other supporters donated over twenty-five different pies for the live auction, which, thanks to very generous audience members, brought in $1,321 for the organization.

Plans currently are in the works for a similar event in the spring, which will feature a spaghetti dinner and a show; this fundraiser likely will be held at the Oak Street property. Watch our Facebook and website for more details soon!
