Merino Downs Murder!
The end of World War 2 is being celebrated on a high-country sheep station when MURDER strikes!
Historically Hysterical Interactive Shows!
The year is 1945 and the setting is Oakwood, a high country sheep station situated in a lush green valley surrounded by snow-capped mountains. It is the home of the Knoe family.
Murray Knoe, the station owner, as a gesture to the local community, holds an open ball at his home to celebrate V.J Day on 29 August 1945. Well over 100 people attend and are wined, dined and danced. You are one of the guests.
There is much joy at the ending of the war. The station is filled with celebration.
Late in the evening Marie Knoe, Murray’s daughter is seen going into the drawing-room. Murray goes looking for her and finds her dead on the couch, the victim of suffocation. There are French doors in the drawing-room going out to the verandah and they are a wide-open indication that the perpetrator may have left by that route. Although there were many many people present at the ball, by process of elimination 6 suspects have emerged:
Murry Knoe, Ima Cadd, Mary Knoe, Moira Tooit, Issac Cadd, Ray Toogood.

Wow! What an incredible stage experience we were able to give the students of Waikaka School due to Monica’s ‘Maui and the Genie’ show. Not only is it a journey about trust and friendship, personal belief and change, but it also incorporates so many catchy songs which the students loved learning. Directing this show was an enjoyable experience; I was able to take this story and conjure up all sorts of creative scenes, props, and movements for our young thespians. Monica’s expertise was only ever a phone call or message away, and we appreciated the extra effort taken to remaster soundtracks and the changes she made in the script. It was an incredible pleasure to work with Monica. We were lucky enough that she was able to travel south to watch our interpretation of her Maui story, the children got a kick out of meeting the writer and loved hearing her positive feedback.
Absolutely Recommend Monica Moore Productions, Linda Miller - Teacher and Director
Thank you so much Monica for everything and for creating such a wonderful production that the cast and the audiences LOVED so much. I loved the experience I had in this production and the faith that Monica had in me to play a lead role even though I had not been on stage before. Being part of this amazing production made me realise the passion and the talent I have for performing arts. High School Blues opened doors for me as I have gone on to study Performing Arts at tertiary level. High School Blues will always be with me and is the reason why I’m the person I am today. This show gave me the opportunity to find something that I loved doing. I found a whole new world.

The children have loved every minute Monica! Being in the Great Adventure has given me the opportunity to showcase my God given talents. I am honoured that I was a part of something special, something I’ve never tried before. It’s changed my life, it’s taught me that my peers will be with me throughout the show knowing we have have each other’s backs. This has been my first ever professional show. The experience of being in front of a supportive audience, being able to work together as a family to get through tough times. I’d like to thank the Director of it all Monica for making it all possible for us young talented students. We are truly blessed and thankful for your presence.
