"Mandate For Murder" – Towle Theater

By Pat Cook
(Presented through special arrangement with Eldridge Publishing Company.)

All of us have had enough about politics, however when local politics is in play things can become a bit testy. Combine that with a birthday party, well . . . death tends to put a damper on things. Two deaths, well . . .

The Towle Theater Youth Ensemble (TYTE) did an excellent job maintaining the pace for this play, and keeping our minds on many things; the surprise birthday part, the election, individual character quirks, and clues that intermingle themselves throughout the story. As always with a well written story and strong played character roles, you will want to take a guess at "who did it" and you will go "oops" when you are wrong. Even with that information, you will still be wrong.

A good play is only as good as the cast, and the director. You can see both took their parts seriously, resulting in a excellent Mandate For Murder!
