The comedy Die Theatrically begins its run in the lakecity this week, hitting the stage for opening night Wednesday.

The story line revolves around detectives Jane and Tom who investigate a murder at a community theatre’s all female production of Macbeth the Musical.

But is it a murder?  Or a double murder?  Or a murder-suicide?

Written by Canadian playwright Mat Kelly, the Studio Theatre’s production is the first time this play has ever been performed on stage, says producer Amanda LeForte.

“Mark Berezan is the director and this is his first time directing, which is pretty exciting,” adds LeForte.

The Die Theatrically cast includes Tanis Daum as detective Jane; Terry Lyons as detective Tom; Jennifer McPhee as Penny; Kirsten Sandberg as Jackie; Kathy MacDonald as Amy; Jane Birkbeck as Carolyn; and Cole Mitchell as Luke.

The show is on stage Jan. 14-17 and Jan. 21-24, at the Studio Theatre on Mackenzie Avenue.

The doors open at 7:30 and the play starts at 8 p.m.

Tickets are available at The Open Book, About Face Photography and The Realm  of Toys.
