It was Mr. Green, but not in the kitchen with a candlestick — it was all over Niagara, with a camera and a script.
Niagara Falls comedian David Green has put together a Niagara-made murder mystery comedy called “OLDE TOWNE” which airs at the Seneca Queen Theatre on April 14, during an event to raise money for the Niagara Falls Humane Society.
Green said the film has a lot of hidden jokes that pay tribute to classic murder-mystery pop culture.
“Clue, and detectives, and you know, or Sherlock Holmes or Colombo, a litte Pink Panther,” said Green.
“A little bit of Scooby Doo too.”
The movie is the second movie Green has endeavoured in, starring himself along with fellow comedians Jeffrey Stroop and Levi Mann.
This time production was scaled up quite a it, Green said.
“It’s the same casting crew, but with much more. There’s like 10 extra cast members and lots of extras and much more settings and locations for this movie.”
He said the crew filmed at locations around Niagara-on-the-Lake, including Fort Mississauga and the old court house, with support from various local businesses.
The evening will feature live stand-up comedy from the cast of the film and live music from OLDE TOWNE score creator Rod Standish, as well as raffles, prizes and special guests.
This fundraiser is sponsored by Lakeview Vineyards Equipment and Big Texas Niagara, with all proceeds going to help the Niagara Falls Humane Society.
