'Foul Weather Friend' at The Palm

While the members of the Friends of the Arts circle gather at the Seagull Inn to plan their next fundraising event, a tropical storm threatens the South Jersey shore. Guests trapped in the dining room fear coastal flooding, heavy rains, fierce winds - plus a storm brewing inside.

Playwright Jeanne-Andree Nelson's murder mystery, "Foul Weather Friend," begins a five-performance run at The Palm Atlantic City on Sunday, April 7, with a 1 p.m. matinee and a 6 p.m. dinner show. More performances follow 6 p.m. Sunday, April 21, 7 p.m. Friday, April 26, and 1 p.m. Saturday, April 27.

All performances include a four-course meal. Tickets are $90 per person. The Palm Atlantic City is located inside The Quarter at Tropicana Casino. For tickets contact Barbara Bermel at Bbermel@thepalm.com or call 609-344-0483.
