Around this time of year, a little bit of murder becomes a part of the Hardeman County Arts Council (HCAC) productions. This year is no different as we prepare for our murder mystery dinner theatre. Murder at the Big Horn Ranch debuts on the HCAC stage on Thursday, February 13.
Murder at the Big Horn Ranch, written by local playwright and actress Monita Carlin, is going to entertain and keep the audience guessing until the murder is solved. You may be familiar with Carlin who wrote It’s a Three Ring Circus and the Lipsmack series, and also recently appeared on the HCAC stage as Myrtle in the Sanders Family plays. Carlin keeps the good laughs going when audience members “check in” at the Big Horn Lodge.
SYNOPSIS: “The murder takes place at the Big Horn Lodge during a severe thunder storm. The lights go on and off and when the thunder roars, the lights go out and when they come back on, Jock Peters has been stabbed. When Mr. Farmer, the owner, tried to call the police, he finds the phone is out of order. Mr. Wayne knows Dick O’Malley is a famous private investigator, so he asks him to take charge until the police can be contacted.”
The cast has been selected. There are some familiar faces as well as new ones. Don’t let the fact you know these people offstage hinder your detective skills. One of them is always guilty! As usual, all characters (AKA suspects) have hidden secrets that get revealed in a comical manner.
Tickets are now on sale online for Murder at the Big Horn Ranch, which will be presented Thursday through Saturday, February 13 – 15 at the HCAC. The box office opens Monday, January 27.
Wear your western attire (not required) and join us for dinner at 6 p.m. The mystery begins at 7 p.m.
