Chagrin Valley Little Theatre opens its season with its annual "Murder by the Falls," which will run Sept. 5 and 6 at 7 p.m.

This year's murder mystery, "Chagrin Idol: A Killer Competiton," written by Eric Oswald and Brenda Redmond, has several characters competing in an international reality competition. The volatile mix of competitors leads to murder.

Audience detectives will join Interpol's top "not-so-secret" agent, Chagrin's Finest, and local elected officials to track down clues at the theatre and throughout downtown Chagrin.
