A ‘Perfect Crime’ to be featured at The Talent Box in Wills Point
Special to The Monitor
WILLS POINT–The Talent Box in Wills Point will hold regular and dinner performances of “Perfect Crime,” written by Warren Manzi and directed by Jane Gamon in March.
The mystery takes place in a present day sitting room in the Brent home in an upper-crust Connecticut neighborhood.
During several nights of an eventful week, a decades-old mystery unfolds with psychiatrist Margaret Thorne Brent on the verge of a best selling, Oprah Winfrey-appearance success. But there’s a mettlesome secret from her past, an unstable patient and her insufferable husband to complicate matters.
James Ascher, a local police inspector interested in the case (and maybe more) helps keep the audience guessing.
Jane Gamon of Myrtle Springs will direct the play with assistance from Diane Hamilton of Wills Point. Connie Peden of Wills Point will manage sound and lights; and Virginia Reid-Yost of Terrell will stage manage with help from Michelle Rowden of Edgewood.
Cliff Reichel of Terrell will design and build the set. James Phillips of Edgewood will prepare the program cover. Jane Gamon will prepare the program and Carl Campbell of Terrell will do the publicity and handle the box office.
Regular performances are at 7:30 p.m. Friday-Saturday, March 2-3 and 2 p.m. Sunday, March 4.
Audience members are invited to attend a reception with refreshments following the opening performance.
Dinner theatre performances are Friday - Saturday, March 9-10 at 6:30 p.m.
Admission for regular seating $10 for adults, $8 for seniors and students and $5 for children ages 12 and under.

Women’s club hears book reviewer Sharron Lucky
Susan Harrison
Monitor Staff Writer

KEMP–Sharron Lucky entertained the Cedar Creek Lake Women’s Club during their monthly meeting Jan. 24 at Cedar Creek Country Club.
Lucky, a professional book reviewer, shared the story, “Becky: The Life and Loves of Becky Thatcher” by Lenore Hart with the club members and guests.
Dressed in costume from 1910 in San Francisco, Lucky takes the audience back in time as she shares Becky Thatcher’s desire to set the record straight about her relationship with Tom Sawyer and Huckleberry Finn.
Thatcher was Tom Sawyer’s childhood sweetheart who was uncommitted to making a life with her.
Thatcher lived in Missouri during the Civil War. Missouri tried to remain neutral during the war but became involved when it was invaded.

Book reviewer Sharron Lucky of Dallas presents “Becky: The Life and Loves of Becky Thatcher” for the Cedar Creek Lake Women’s Club Jan. 24 at Cedar Creek Country Club.

Thatcher’s husband enlists in the army against her wishes. Thatcher decides to join Tom Sawyer’s “Freebooters Gang” to find her husband. Thatcher often impersonates a man as a member of the gang. Her goal is to find her husband and bring him home from the war.
Lucky is able to be the voice of Thatcher as the audience learns of her adventures during this time period. Most are very humorous as the strong-willed Thatcher has a message “I was never the weeping little ninny Sam Clemens made me out to be in his book.”
Lucky has been a book reviewer for many years and resides in Dallas with her husband. She is also children’s book author and public speaker.
Guests were treated to a delicious lunch of salad selections, baked potatoes, soup and cookies.
Lucy Morris and Betty Wise were named to the club’s nominating committee that is chaired by Phyllis Watson. The committee will present a slate of officer nominees for election and installation in the spring.
