Bates Motel Murder Mystery This Saturday

“Sometimes we all go a little crazy”

This Saturday night New Vintage Theatre’s soap opera AS THE SUN BURNS presents their own version of Psycho as a fun murder mystery at The Black Box called Bates Motel.

Major movie star Janet Leaves (played by Guest Star Elana Bizovie) is in K-Town and heap of financial trouble. She wants to start a new life so she decides to rip off her agent, leaving the precarious life of a starlet behind. After driving through the pouring rain, she comes upon the shabby, mysterious Bates Motel and a beckoning, blinking vacancy sign. Throughout the night she will encounter an unusual Hallowe’en party, mother and son, detective team, her agent, sister, creepy clown and, yes, a killer.
