BOATS, BODIES AND BETRAYAL BRINGS MURDER ON THE HIGH SEAS TO LA MESA, ABOARD KIWANIS’ BENEFIT EVENT

June 5, 2018 (La Mesa) – It’s not every charity dinner that starts off with  cruise director Sue Nami (played by Janette Mills) welcome you aboard a 1949 cruise ship--or with a wine bottled labeled “rat poison” as the centerpiece.  Not to mention a billionaire bikini designer turning up dead – with a boatload of suspects and the entire audience helping to solve the crime.
