Professor Kleine, a creative literature instructor, has a rather unusual final exam. He sets up a murder in his own home and has his students try to solve it. Somewhere along the way, however, one of the students begins to wonder if it really is just an assignment or if a real murder has taken place. But when another student is killed, it really gets serious. Part of the final? Or actual homicides? Who is really dead? And who is the murderer? The surprising ending will simply kill you! Please take note that this show presents the topics of homicide and suicide and will use prop weapons in production. Parents and guardians are advised to consider the ages of children they bring to this show and to use their own discretion as some content is geared for more mature children.

Directed by SaraKate & Scott Hammer, all performances of “The Long Red Herring” will be at Riverfront Theater, 2 S. Walnut Street in Milford and are scheduled for February 23, 24, and 25, 2024. Friday and Saturday shows begin at 7 p.m. and Sunday’s show begins at 2 p.m. Friday night’s performance is pay what you can at the door, donations only.
