"The premise is perfect for the Old Creamery's elite cast. The imaginary "fourth wall" separating the audience from the actors is flimsy at best, and gets demolished entirely when viewers are asked to sift through clues and unravel a murder they never saw happen.The beauty of this convention is that it lets the Amana troupe display improv at its best - and funniest. And because the audience actively participates in the second half, the action and outcome will be different for every performance." —Diana Nollen with the Cedar Rapid's Gazette.

"As the action unfolds, audience members question the actors as if they were a modern Sherlock Holmes trying to solve a rather hairy murder....Based on audience input, the murdered can be a different character each night." —Zach Berg with the Press Citizen.

"Shear Madness has several unique qualities — two of the most obvious being that the show takes place locally, and it calls for an audience that is willing to play an additional role. In fact, part of the original structure of the play requires it take place in the town it is being performed — hence why Shear Madness is set in Cedar Rapids. As a consequence, the show is loaded with local references." —Victoria Vaughn with The Daily Iowan. To read the entire feature article click HERE.

Voted "Best Comedy of the Year" seven times by the Boston Globe!
This unique comic-whodunit takes place today in the "Shear Madness" hairstyling salon. During the course of the action, a murder is committed and the audience gets to spot the clues, question the suspects, and solve the funniest mystery seen on stage. The outcome is never the same, which is why many audience members return again and again to the scene of the mayhem. Rated PG. This show does include mild language and innuendoes. Please call our box office with questions.
