Valley Christian Fellowship presents its third annual mystery dinner theater, “I’m Getting Murdered in the Morning!”

Times and dates are 7 p.m. Feb. 14 and 3 p.m. Feb. 15 at the church, 1352 Highway 395 in Gardnerville.

This light-hearted murder mystery takes place in the 1980s at the wedding reception of wealthy bride, Brenda Ann Marie Montague and her country boy groom, Edward Crock. The bride’s parents, Harold and Mildred, are quite rich and come from “old money.” The groom’s family came into money from a lottery ticket that his father won shortly before his death.

“Needless to say there is some tension to be found between Mildred and the loveable mother of the groom, Sheila,” director Karen Lovell said.

During the garter toss, a mysterious man is killed on the dance floor. The mysterious man has ties to both the groom and the bride’s family.

“A wonderful cast rounds out this enjoyable evening of humor and 80’s music,” Lovell said. “ A delicious wedding buffet dinner will be served as well as wedding cake for dessert, and a yummy candy table will satisfy your sweet tooth.”

There will also be a photo booth for guests, and door prizes will be given out.

Tickets are on sale through Feb. 10. Each dinner theater performance has limited seating.

Ticket prices for a couple are $35, singles are $20, and children younger than 12 are $10. Tickets may be purchased from any cast member or at VCF.

The proceeds from dinner theater will be used throughout the year by VCF for their Wednesday night children’s summer program, family events and community outreaches.
