Upon opening night of Murder with Mummies, you’ll be welcomed to an exhibit of artifacts from the Egyptian tomb of Imhotep, which is being sponsored by Aaron Burr University. While the characters have all led interesting pasts, we soon find out they all have one thing in common-their mutual dislike of Gerald Schwartzberg (Eric Armstrong), University President. Okay, so maybe it’s more disdain and hatred than just dislike towards Gerald.
But who can blame them? Just to put things in perspective for you, here’s the inside information on how dastardly this overbearing, conniving, manipulative, pompous so-and-so is. But, don’t let this blog bias you. Maybe you’ll have more sympathy for the victim than others.
Gerald has single-handedly cheated, stolen from, and manipulated the other attendees of the Imhotep exhibit. Who wouldn’t want to murder someone for all that? And, each have lots to gain from his death.
Having belittled and controlled his wife, Amelia (Cheryl Crabb), for years, she’ll now be able to enjoy past loves-of the human and adventure variety.
With Gerald dead, Wes Baker (Conrad Bianco) will get ALL the credit for uncovering Imhotep’s tomb, which he rightly deserves as the archaeologist of the dig.
Zahi Abdullah (Mark LaMarche) will be able to fulfill his job duties - getting the artifacts returned to Egypt after the exhibit’s tour - since Gerald won’t be fighting to keep them at Aaron Burr Univeristy.
Revenge is sweet – at least it will be for Delilah Holmes (Cassie Culpepper) and B.J. Cameron (Valerie Boyce). Both ladies’ careers were professionally impacted by Gerald’s dishonorable actions.
And sweet Karen Smithson (Jamie Williams) may finally get a chance to help her secret love succeed without Gerald’s interfering ways.
