Bob Carmody of Charlotte is featured as Detective Mumford in Shelburne Players’ thriller comedy “The Butler Did it” by Walter and Peter Marks, opening Nov. 16 through Nov. 24 at Shelburne Town Center. Bob appeared this year in “Opportunity of a Lifetime,” a Moxie/Marabo production. He was also in “Getting Sara Married,” and “Our Evening with Durang,” for Essex Community Players. His past work with Shelburne Players includes “The Odd Couple,” “Night of the Iguana,” “Much Ado About Nothing,” and “The Rainmaker.” In “The Butler Did It,” an off-Broadway group is rehearsing a “classic whodunit” (in which all the characters are named Butler). The director “stages” the murder of one of the actresses to focus the dysfunctional cast and test their reactions. But was the death really just acting? The show is a series of twists and turns to where the actors and audience alike will lose track of what is real and what is make-believe that concludes in a surprise, bizarre, and ironic ending. The show was described by the New York Post as a “deft and diabolically clever thriller [which] mingles laughter and chills as it skillfully unwinds its twisted tale of murder and mayhem in the glittering world of the theatre.” To find out more about Shelburne Players’ fall production, visit www.shelburneplayers.com.
