This show is appropriate for ages 9 and up. Some actors pretend to drink alcohol. There are gun shot sound effects. It is a murder-mystery comedy, so there are comedic "murder" scenes, but nothing too graphic or gory. The show has comedic use of a candlestick, dagger, rope, wrench, revolver, lead pipe, and toy guns used by police officers. The show is set in the 1950s, so there are references that may not be familiar to younger audiences.
Thursday, April 20th @ 6:00 PM
