Murder-mystery dinner theatre to benefit Comox Valley Food Bank

A cast of amateur actors and volunteers from the Comox Valley Small Business Association will uncover “who done it.”

“In the Deadwood saloon in the town of Gravestone, the townspeople are gathering for an evening of poker, dancing and drinking – oblivious to the trouble that is brewing around them. Suddenly the evening takes a turn when one of the locals turns up dead!”

While you enjoy your dinner, the cast of amateur actors and volunteers from the Comox Valley Small Business Association will uncover “who done it.” Then un-holster your guns and kick up your boots on the dance floor.

The murder-mystery dinner theatre, to be held at the Courtenay Legion to benefit the Comox Valley Food bank, is scheduled for Saturday, May 2. Doors open at 6:30 p.m. Western apparel and costumes are encouraged.

There will be plenty of door prizes.

In addition to fundraising through ticket sales, there will be a silent auction. This is a great marketing opportunity, so donations are welcome in advance by contacting Lori Ball at 250-703-3444.

Seating is limited. Tickets are $30 per person, available through Ball or www.EventBrite.ca (Murder At The Deadwood Saloon).

For entrepreneurs looking for a group that combines networking with education and events such as this, please attend an association meeting as a guest at no charge. If you like what you see and the people you meet, membership is only $95 per year.

The SBA meets on the first and third Thursdays of the month at the Florence Filberg Centre’s Evergreen Room in the lower level.
