Audience interactive murder mystery dinner theater where the audience decides the ending!

2 females, 4 males - gender flexible

Mark Henshaw: The male lead actor of the troupe. He is arrogant, conceited and sarcastic. Fortunately for all of us, he is also the murder victim. (41 lines)
Harcourt Rodale: The director. A friendly, warm person towards everyone except Mark. Especially in his element when "working" an audience. He enjoys talking about the "magic of theatre" and has been involved in it for most of his life. (98 lines)
Lisa McFarland: The female lead actress. She is a former "big name" actress with a recognizable name and face, which the troupe uses to its advantage. Shehas a pleasant personality, but is headstrong, used to getting her own way - a prima donna past her prime. (96 lines)
Darlene Richards: The young ingenue. Sweet and kooky; not stupid, but charmingly naive. (59 lines)
Brad Reese: The understudy for Henshaw. He is young, handsome and enthusiastic about theatre, though not as talented as he believes he is. (73 lines)
"Flash" Burns: The stage manager. Taciturn and methodical; the strong silent typewho anticipates a problemand corrects it without panicking. Polite enough but not talkative. (77 lines)

Synopsis
A traveling theatre group gets ready to present their play, when one of their actors is murdered. The audience helps determine which one of the cast members is the culprit. At the end, the audience votes for who they think the murderer is; whoever gets the most votes is the confessed killer. The play is written with five different endings - the cast member who gets the votes goes into the ending tailored especially for him/her.
