    Curse of the Lost Mummy

    An ambitious Egyptologist has lost the mummy of Pharaoh Khamenshetsu and chooses to go ahead with the museum exhibit even if he has to fake it, ignoring the rumors of a mummy’s curse at first—until the mysterious accidents and bizarre appearances of Khamenshetsu threaten to derail it all. The kids of Athens Little Playhouse bring the fun to this original whodunit by director and playwright Lynne Thomas.
