ST Stephen’s Drama Group are preparing for their latest production, Murder at Crimson House.

The show  is being directed by Samantha Vernon, who has been with the group for more than eleven years. 

She said: "When I first read the script, I was instantly hooked by the storyline as well as the catchy songs. I love musicals and the way they leave you feeling really cheered up. This musical is no exception. The characters are completely loopy and larger than life. 

"We’re so lucky to have many talented members in our group and they have really enjoyed the rehearsals. I feel that the fun they are having with it all is showing in their performance. Sometimes I forget I’m supposed to be directing as it’s so entertaining to watch."

Murder at Crimson House is a musical comedy whodunit featuring the world famous private eye, Hercules Porridge.

During investigations for his very first case, a corpse is discovered in the sitting room, and guests start acting suspiciously. Can Hercules prove the police wrong and solve the case or is it just too much of a mystery for this novice detective?

Although the production is taking up a lot of her time, Samantha has also become engaged to her boyfriend, Steven Roberts. "It’s just the icing on the cake. I’m so excited about the future, not just for Steven and I, but for the drama group. We are like a family and share each others' celebrations."

Tickets for Murder at Crimson House are on sale at £6 each. The show runs from June 7-9  at 7.30pm at St Stephen’s Church Hall, Church Road, Soundwell. Bristol, BS16 4RH
