MURDER MYSTERY DINNER
The Crete Park District will be holding an event to die for ... a comedy murder mystery by Without a Net Entertainment that would be a crime to miss. Two actors play multiple characters and guide you through the mystery, revealing suspects and motives surrounding “The Case of the Deadly Killer.” Audience members get in on the fun, playing characters and solving the crime (and perhaps, even committing the murder.) Don’t miss this interactive evening full of food and fun. This special event will take place from 5:30 to 10 p.m. Sept. 28. Tickets are $40 per person and must be purchased in advance.
SHOW CHOIR PRELUDE
Prelude is our name and it means introduction. Children will learn songs and choreographed dance steps to upbeat, popular music, showing them how fun it can be. They learn to build success through teamwork, camaraderie and concentration. Directors Kyla Metzler and Courtney Winkelman were both part of the Crete-Monee High School award-winning Faces and Cavaliers show choirs. Metzler was also awarded Most Outstanding Female Vocalist in the nation. Join our new adventure, dazzle an audience of parents and friends, and be a part of Prelude. This program is for kids in third through sixth grade and meets from 5:45 to 7 p.m., Fridays at Crete Park on Main, 1374 Main St. The session will run Sept. 13 to Nov. 22 and costs $62 for residents of Crete and $88 for nonresidents. There will be one Saturday practice scheduled for choreography.
The Crete Park District will be hosting free demonstration classes for its new exercise program, Ageless Grace for ages 50 and up, from 9 to 10 a.m. Sept. 9 and 11. The movement sequences in this class focus on the healthy longevity of the body, mind, emotions and spirit and are all performed in a chair. Ageless Grace promotes the three R’s of lifelong comfort and ease: the ability to respond, recover and react efficiently and safely.
