NORMAN — In a twist of comedy and community, someone gets the ax, and not just in his/her starring role, in a Valentine’s date night favorite Feb. 13-15, supporting The Sooner Theatre, at The Hall at The Railhouse, 102 W. Eufaula St.
All proceeds from the Murder Mystery benefit the programs and operations of Sooner Theatre. Tickets to the event — including dinner, dessert and a show — are $75 each, or $600 for a table of eight. Doors open at 6:30 each night.
“It’s a Valentine’s weekend tradition. Murder Mystery audiences always have a great evening of laughter and intrigue — even if it isn’t always politically correct,” said Jennifer Baker, Sooner Theatre executive director. “This is our biggest single fundraising event of the year, so attendees are helping us continue to bring quality live theater, educational programs and concert events to Norman each year.”
Audience members can purchase tips from the cast during breaks in the show. At the end of the evening, those audience members who have correctly guessed the killer’s identity are entered into a drawing to win a pair of season tickets to the Sooner’s theatrical season, Sooner Stage Presents.
The show is written by James Briggs, of the Norman Parks and Recreation Department. Cast members include Briggs, Marles Bradley, Kerri Brinkman White, Jody White, Stephen White, Kathy Nees, Mark Krittenbrink, Thressa Guidice and Leasa Stewart.
It’s all falling apart at Haggard Estates Trailer Park when the world’s worst neighbor, Tess Doolin, shoots her mouth off one too many times and someone finally shoots back. “Death In A Double Wide” will have audience members guessing about who killed Tess.
Tickets can be purchased in advance by calling The Sooner Theatre at 321-9600. Box office hours are 10 a.m. to noon and 2 to 5 p.m. Tuesday through Friday. The evening is for adults only.
