Oglebay Institute’s Parcel Players present “The Bold, the Young and the Murdered” by Don Zolidis July 10-13 at Towngate Theatre. Curtain is 7pm for each show.

The long-running soap opera “The Bold and the Young” is in its last days: its hunky hero has self-esteem issues, its villainous old man is more interested in soup, and its heroines are slightly psychopathic. The executive producer gives the squabbling cast an ultimatum–complete one episode overnight or the show dies. But when the director ends up murdered, and other cast members start dropping like flies, it seems like his threat might actually come true. Can these misfits discover the murderer before the show is literally killed off?

All tickets are $8 and can be purchased online or by calling 304-242-7700.
