Joey Waldrop In Gallery Players Murder Mystery Improv Show


     Coweta actor Joey Waldrop will be one of the performers in the Gallery Players new Murder Mystery Improv Show, which will debut in March.  The Gallery Players are the improvisation troupe of the Fayette-based Offshoot Productions.   


     Dr. Susan Steadman, the Director of Offshoot Productions, has just released this important announcement about this new Murder Mystery Improv Show: 



   Gallery Players Troupe Offers a New Murder Mystery Improv Show


            Offshoot Productions' Gallery Players improvisation troupe has spent the past year developing an energetic ensemble and delighting audiences in a wildly comic exploration of life and relationships.  Now the troupe is offering a twist on the popular murder mystery.  In Murder Off the Cuff, the improv performers incorporate audience suggestions as to murder weapons, motivations, conspirator interaction, clue searching and much more.  In this evening of scenes, the actors may portray famous detectives, plot a crime, find ingenious ways of committing murder, or solve a mystery, all the while using the hilarious improvisation approaches that have created a loyal following. 


The first performance in this evening of scenes with a murder mystery theme takes place on Friday, March 6, at 8:00 p.m. at It's a Grind coffee house, 1240 Hwy 54 West, across from Piedmont Fayette Hospital in Fayetteville.  The enticing aromas, delicious desserts and cozy seating are certain to add to the audience's enjoyment. 


Tickets, which are $10 each, may be picked up in person at It's a Grind or purchased online with a credit card at


Tickets may also be ordered by mail, with checks made out to Offshoot Productions and sent to P.O. Box 2462 , Peachtree City , GA 30269 . 


This is the third time that Offshoot Productions, a 15-year-old professional theatre company, has presented an evening of entertainment at It's a Grind.  Last November, the scripted show Rehearsal for Murder played to a standing room only crowd there, and the Gallery Players performed a comedy show in December.


Members of the Gallery Players include Elizabeth Clausen, Andy Fleming, Kristi Israel, Betty Mitchell, Paige Steadman and Joey Waldrop.  Usually four or five of the six actors, along with director Susan M. Steadman, Ph.D., perform at a venue.  In addition to presenting public performances such as this one at It's a Grind, the company performs at corporate functions, private parties and community events.
