THEATRE GOURMET: Alison Faresa, 17 and Joe Beehan, 15 from Redbank Plains SHS where they will be holding a theatre restaurant later this month.

DEATH by Dessert is the name of Redbank Plains State High School's theatre restaurant show opening tomorrow night and it is sure to be a treat.

A group of drama students have been busy rehearsing since February preparing the performance.

The audience will play a part in solving the murder mystery, while enjoying a three-course Italian tapas style meal prepared by the senior hospitality students' catering team, Platters on Willow.

Joe Beehan, 15, said the show would be "fun and tasteful".

"The play is about Maria, the owner of a building that houses two feuding restaurants," he said.

"At the start, she dies and no one knows how.

"There are two chocolate cakes and one is poisoned.

"The audience has to help find out who did it."

It will be the first performance in the school's new performing arts centre since it was opened in February, according to organiser Jana Major.

"Part of the plan was to give the drama students a chance to shine and also show off our new building," she said.

"Half of our tickets have sold out already."

Death by Dessert will be showing on Thursday, May 17 at 4pm and 7pm and on Friday, May 18 at 7pm.

Tickets are $15 and can be purchased by phoning Redbank Plains State High School office on 3432 1222.
