    MONROE-Poor old Uncle John has passed away and left his entire fortune to his wife Mary. Can she keep her wits about her as the rest of the family plots against her? The audience-participation game, to be played at Sacred Heart School in Monroe, is played during the course of dinner, where a “murder” is committed and the guests must try to solve the mystery. It’s like a giant game of “Clue” without the board. The event features the S. Ben Sanguedolce’s Alibi Players, founded in 1991, who perform murder mystery dinners in the tri-state area. The troupe uses professional and semi-professional actors and performers with credits that include the New York stage, summer stock, regional theater, films and TV (such as Sopranos, Sex In The City, Spin City, Law & Order, Guiding Light, The Bold and the Beautiful, and Real Stories of the Highway Patrol). Their library of murder mysteries numbers 21 and is growing. all are written by Sanguedolce, so guests take part in an original murder. This fourth annual “Whodunit?” murder mystery dinner will be held at 6:30 p.m. on Saturday, Nov. 5, in the school gym on Still Road Tickets, at $35 per person, include buffet dinner, complimentary wine, soda, dessert and coffee.
