When thinking of Tottenville, one first thinks of the Conference House, the site of a 1776 peace conference that was unsuccessful in putting an end to the Revolutionary War.
On June 30 this location not only offered a reading of the Declaration of Independence by Staten Island OutLOUD during the day, but was also the subject of a fundraiser in the evening at St. Sylvester’s Parish Hall on Targee Street to generate funds to continue all that it offers.
Kill-her Entertainment hosted a show, Shake, Rattle, and Roll Over Dead, which was the main event of an evening that included a buffet by Little Italy Gourmet with beer, wine, and soda to benefit the Conference House. The cast presented an entertaining mystery that got one’s grey cells working to solve the murder, while they tickled one’s funny bone with the performance's witty lines.
With a scene set at the Trailer Park Music Award Show, country and rock stars compete for the Artist of the Year award when things get shook up with an untimely murder.
The talented cast included:
Nikki Lauren as Maybelline Hortown
Vinnie Mazella as Billy Bob Hortown
Natalie Wilder as Polly Darton/ Amia Pain
Christine Reinhart as Pat Rentacar
Charlie McLaughlin as Johnny Crash
Joseph Smith as Pelvis Esley
Mary McConnell as Patsy Kleinberg
Kimberly Cantoni as Daisy May Due
And Nate Ullrich as Abner Little
After the show, winners of the Chinese Auction to further benefit the Conference House received their prizes and yours truly was the happy recipient of a framed photograph of the Conference House donated by BorisVinokur.
