Valentine theater with a twist

The Eagan Theater Company is offering dinner and a dramatic murder mystery for Valentine's Day.

The company will perform "My Fatal Valentine" at Royal Cliff Center while the audience dines on an Italian menu that includes chicken breast "smothered" in white wine and pasta primavera with "killer sauce." The show is interactive and the audience will fill out ballots indicating who they think committed the crime. The audience's pick determines the end of the play, according to director Amy Kamarainen.

Royal Cliff Center is located at 2280 Cliff Road, Eagan. Tickets for the play and dinner are $38 each. They can be purchased through the Eagan Theater Company website, www.etc-mn.org.
