WEBSTER CITY — Love the soaps? Love a murder mystery with lots of laughs? Then Webster City Community Theatre’s “The Bold, the Young and the Murdered” has just what you’re looking for.

The hunky hero has self-esteem issues, its villainous old man is more interested in soup, and its heroines are slightly psychopathic. The executive producer gives the squabbling cast an ultimatum: complete one episode overnight or the show dies. But when the director ends up murdered and other cast members start dropping like flies, it seems like his threat might actually come true. Can these misfits discover the murdered before the show is literally killed off?

Since mid-January, 13 cast members have been in rehearsal under the direction of Angela Rottering. Eight of the actors play characters in the long-running soap opera, “The Bold and the Young.”
