Murder mystery dinner show to benefit Playhouse

CROSSVILLE — Get ready for an evening of fatal fun when Cumberland County Playhouse volunteers presents Sam Club, Private Eye, and the Case of the Motorcoach Murder April 29-30 and May 1. Proceeds from the dinner theater event will benefit the Cumberland County Playhouse.

Doors will be open from 4:30 to 5:30 p.m. for cocktails, and at 5:30 p.m. attendees will enjoy a delicious buffet dinner, while the cast keeps a low profile. The main show will start after the dinner at around 7 p.m.

The action will take place at Forte's on the Square, where a senior group will stop for the night after attending the famous Road Kill Falls Annual Barbeque. But this murder mystery has a different twist. Instead of having someone die at the end, they will bring in the dead body right in the beginning. Then the audience will watch for clues and try to guess who killed poor Harry, the group leader.

Every cast member is a suspect, including Sam Club himself. Although he is on vacation, Sam will be talked into solving the crime and go about it in his usual bumbling fashion. At the end of the show, the audience will vote on “whodunit,” and the first people to correctly guess the murderer and motive will win prizes.

Tickets for the dinner and show are $25. For information and reservations, call the Cumberland County Playhouse Box Office at 484-5000.
