Panhandle Players - 'Dial M for Murder’ - {ts '2019-03-22 08:00:00'} - {ts '2019-03-24 17:00:00'}


In London, 1952, the wealthy Margot Wendice has convinced her professional tennis player husband, Tony, to give up playing to spend more time with her. He now sells sports equipment, and, to Margot, their life together is a happy one. However, he has discovered that while he was on a tennis tour in the United States several years ago, Margot had an affair with an American murder mystery writer named Max Halliday.
Because he wants revenge as well as her money, Tony meticulously plans Margot’s murder. She has no idea that Tony knows of her past affair, nor does she have any suspicion that he planning to kill her. Max comes to London to visit the couple, and Tony uses this as the opportunity to fulfill his plan.
Tony blackmails a man who calls himself Captain Lesgate, a former schoolmate and convicted criminal, to carry out the scheme. They plan what they believe is the perfect murder. But when Margot refuses to play the part of the victim, things go much differently than planned.
This exciting melodrama had a highly successful run on Broadway and the road. “…original and remarkably good theatre—quiet in style but tingling with excitement underneath.” —NY Times.
“It’s a holiday for the whodunit fans, and, as such, it couldn’t be more welcome.” —NY Herald-Tribune.

Forgotten Coast en Plein Air - May 3, 2019 - May 13, 2019

Now in the 14th year of documenting the landscape and culture of the last vestige of authentic “Old Florida,” Forgotten Coast en Plein Air, America’s Great Paint-out, is among the world’s most prestigious plein air events. Artistic excellence and the production of investment quality art continues to be the trademark of this 10-day festival. As the event moves into its second decade, organizers are honing what makes the Forgotten Coast event exceptional. “With plein air events popping up all over the country, we realize the importance of focusing on quality and relevance. We have developed a three year program, transcending typical event content to focus on the reason why plein air painting is important, as well as how the process and the paintings contribute to a region’s resilience,” states Forgotten Coast Cultural Coalition President, Joe Taylor.
May of 2019 will focus on the natural environment as it recovers from the impact of Hurricane Michael. While each year will have a programmatic focus for the purpose of examination in the series of lectures, presentations and discussions, the collectors can be assured that the paintings will be a superb mix of subject matter and styles.
The invitational features 20 internationally acclaimed artists, as well as, four “Florida’s Finest en Plein Air” artists honored as Plein Air Ambassadors. Expanded exhibits, a Collectors’ Forum, distinguished guest speakers, and surprises that will be fresh and new to the plein air community are all in the making! Book your reservations early for the best rates!
