Lucky Dollar is an LA private eye who hasn't had a case in 2 years. His secretary is an airheaded blonde, his new client has multiple personalities, and the cops are trying to put him in jail. The story has everything from a loony toon family, a Cuban maid (that is played by a guy), a guy in a gorilla suit, and a Japanese woman that is a little too good with knives.
If you are in the area, I highly recommend it! The last 2 performances are this Friday and Saturday night at 7pm. $35/ticket includes a Chinese themed dinner and a fantastic show. You can call the Opera House at 997-4242 to make reservations no later than Wed.
Here are some rave reviews:
"Went to see "Lucky Dollar," the murder mystery dinner theater at the Monticello Opera House. It was beeyoooooutifully cheesy, and I'm not sure who had more fun -- the cast or the audience!" - Pamela S.
"FOUR THUMBS UP!!! Yes, people, I am raising thumbs that I *don't even have* to the MadCo production of "Lucky Dollar" at the Monticello Opera House. It's one of the funniest show's I've seen in a long time, and the singing, acting and dancing are fabulous." - Judi p.
"Looking for something to do this weekend?? Lucky Dollar Private Eye Musical Murder Mystery is a hit!! I promise you, you're in for some side splitting laughs! The cast was absolutely amazing!" - Paulette M.
Daughter #1 is Chartreuse the Chanteuse, a comedy club owner/singer. She is quite out of character in this role, and she pulls it off great! Daughter #2 is an "Unknown Chorus person". She is also part of the "Dollarette" quartet. Daughter #3 is in the chorus. And hubby is in the band on drums.
Here are just a few pics from the show:

|Had to show you Conchita (Jorge)!|
|Chorus also moonlighted as servers for the dinner. They had their own "Tip" song. |

So make your way to Monticello this weekend for great food (everyone has been raving about it!) and a great show!
