Stoughton selectmen granted a one-day liquor license to Support Our Library Association for its murder mystery at Ahavath Torah Congregation, Saturday, Jan. 18, from 7 to 9 p.m.

Selectmen Thomas J. Recupero is in the play, playing a lawyer, which he is in real life. 

"It's easy," Recupero joked at the selectmen's meeting Dec. 3.

After a sell-out performance at town hall last year, a decision was made to move it to a larger venue this year. Tickets are $25 per person and can be purchased at the Stoughton Public Library, from cast members, or by calling 781-341-0856 or by sending a Facebook message to Dori Frankel.

This year's tickets are going fast, according to Frankel.

"Tickets are available, " she said, "but we're almost halfway sold out. They are a hot ticket."

This year's play is called "Murder of the Loaded Librarian," and features a brand new cast, directed by Fred Yaitanes , assisted by Jan Jones of Stoughton Little Theatre.

The stars will be Steve Bates. John Batchelder, Bob Devine, Mark Doloff, Steve Kelley, Donna Locurto, Juliet Miller, Chris Petrie, TJ Recupero and Peggy Sewcyk. Dr. Maggie Rizzi, the Stoughton schools superintendent, will be performing on bass, while Stoughton librarian Pat Basler will be the host. The script is written by Tom and Penny Warner. Basler was "arrested" for the murder in last year's play.

''This year, we're not killing a selectman," joked Frankel. In the first play, selectman Cynthia Walsh, playing a noted author, was killed in the play.

"I think you can still see the chalk outline over there," said selectmen chairman John Anzivino with a laugh.

Cocktails made from rum and vodka will be served at the performance, and they are being given funky names, according to Frankel.  "It's not going to be a full bar."

Proceeds from the play will benefit from the library.

"I think you are doing a great job," said Anzivino.

The snow date for the play will be Sunday, Jan. 19, at 5 p.m.
