The Oklahoma Road Middle School drama club will be serving mystery and mayhem with spaghetti and meatballs in the cafeteria tonight and tomorrow evening. In this dinner theater, the menu is Italian and the show is slightly slapstick. The cast doubles as the wait staff and promises to draw the audience into Who Poisoned His Meatball? - an interactive murder mystery by Craig Sodaro. The club chose the two-act play for its dramatic debut and selected dinner fare that would complement the plot.
