Everyone Loves a Great Murder Mystery!
Brought to you by Mountain Murder Mysteries, this excellent series of 'Whodunits' is new to Jenolan Caves. It is a variation on the traditional Murder Mystery - you don't act out the story yourself. The professional cast of Mountain Murder Mysteries perform the roles, deep underground, while you look on and try to work out 'Whodunit'. As the drama unfolds, follow the cast from the magnificent Cathedral chamber to the eerie Bone chamber. Spooky stuff!
‘Marriage to the Mob' lends itself to the otherworldly underground atmosphere of the majestic Lucas Cave. Set in Prohibition era America in the 1920s and 30s. Gangsters have taken the law into their own hands and the police are running scared. At the wedding reception of Tony Belloni and his new wife Isabella Belloni (played by Ken Bronilow and Melissa Docker) the story unfolds but not everyone is happy with this new union. But behind the happy smiles are steamy relationships, ruthless criminals, bent cops, icepicks and the odd gunshot.'
Tony Belloni, ‘businessman' and Mafia don, heads the family firm, ‘Belloni Concretes', a front for the family's underworld gangster organisation with interests in bootlegging, money laundering and contract killing; Just a month after the death of his late wife he makes Isabella - a dancer in one of his nightclubs - an offer she can’t refuse and she becomes his new bride..
Paul Newton plays Franki ‘the Face' Sardini, Tony's closest friend, bodyguard and right-hand man. Franky is a hitman and has designs not only on taking over the family firm, but more besides.
As Margo Marconi, Maudie Green portrays a cop who has a previous history with the Belloni organisation and Tony in particular. Although outwardly friendly with him, she also has her own agenda.
After solving the murder, the audience can mingle with the performers and enjoy complimentary wine and cheese in Caves House - delicious!
Mountain Murder Mysteries will perform Marriage to the Mob at Jenolan Caves again in November and December, 2012. Besides their underground performances inside the Jenolan Caves, Mountain Murder Mysteries stage dinner shows at other venues in the Blue Mountains.
