Arts council hosts murder mystery dinner
February 25, 2014
The Carson Valley Arts Council and the Proscenium Players, Inc. are hosting "The Wedding from Hell," a murder mystery dinner theater show.
Performance date is 6 p.m. March 14 at the Carson Valley Inn in Minden.
Bruce Montgomery and Tina Fitzhugh are ready to take their vows and the public is invited to be a witness to more than their "I do's." Bruce's aristocratic mother, Sylvia, is not happy with her son's choice. Tina's father, Jackie, owns a novelty store and has his own special plans on how to improve this happy occasion. Making this celebration complete is a flask-toting judge, a classic wedding singer, a police photographer, the maid, a southern belle and a private investigator who gets more than he bargained for.
"Join this unpredictable group of zany friends and family as they each do their best to make Bruce and Tina's day the most memorable one of their lives," organizers said.
This event is the Carson Valley Arts Council's annual fundraiser. All proceeds from the show, silent auction and 50/50 raffle go to the CVAC's capital campaign to retire the note on the Copeland Cultural Arts Center.
Tickets are $35 for friends of CVAC and $38 for general admission. Reservations are available for parties of eight. Table of eight for friends is $265 or for others $280.
There will also be a silent auction and a 50/50 raffle and a no-host bar. Doors open at 5:30 p.m.
Ticket prices include buffet dinner with dessert, silent auction and 50/50 raffle.
Tickets can be purchased at http://www.cvartscouncil.com, or by calling 782-8207.
Tickets should be purchased by March 10, and will not be available at the door. There are 200 tickets available. Last year was a sellout.
