Dinner theater Sunday at Mardi Gras

Mardi Gras Casino is offering "Murder at Mardi Gras," a dinner theater comedy, at 3 p.m. Sundays on the second floor.

Entertainment coordinator Tony Slade says most of the actors have improvisational backgrounds, which is important in the interactive show.

"A lot of dinner theater is playing off the audience, like a 'Rocky Horror' mentality. They'll talk to you because you're standing in there with them," he says. "But that's great because the actors can feed off the audience."

The storyline involves a group of actors trying to start a dinner theater. As the show begins, an obnoxious patron comes in and dies, and the show becomes a whodunit.

"The person who dies is the same, but the killer is decided by a popular vote, so there's a totally different ending each time," Slade says.

Admission is $42.95 and includes a three-course, traditional Cajun meal. Go to
