Artista! Players have a new dinner theater production coming this weekend. "The Deadly Game" is a dramatic thriller that centers on three retired men of law on a remote mountain in Switzerland. The men amuse themselves by going through the legal ceremony of prosecuting strangers who drop in.

They "play court" three to four times a week to keep their bodies and minds sharp, according to production manager and actress in Deadly Game, Michelle Becker-Fritsche.

An American traveling salesman is their guest one snowy evening. He agrees to play their game and he ends up accused of murder. In the plot, the main character has killed his boss, or has he?

Becker-Fritsche said the fun of the play is that you are not really quite sure what happens, what is real or fictional, just part of the game.

The play, written by James Yaffe, takes place in the 1950s. The cast of eight is directed by Scott Fristche.

Tickets are available through the Artista! Players website at www.artistaplayers.com. Seats, including dinner, cost $35 per person.

Show times are 6:30 p.m. Friday, Saturday and Sunday at The Hoffman House, Best Western, 2901 Hummingbird Road, Rib Mountain.
