Murder Mystery dinner scheduled for Feb. 24-25

Thursday, February 2, 2012

The Rock, located at the corner of Cook and 10th Street, Clay City, will be having a Murder Mystery dinner Friday, Feb. 24, at 6:30 p.m., and Saturday, Feb. 25, at 6:30 p.m.

The show will include a full meal of barbecue pork, baked beans, potato salad, cole slaw and cornbread.

"Wrangle at Red Mountain Ranch" by Nancy Bond is a murder mystery with a western theme, where a lively crew heads out west to a dude ranch. The gang seeks to hash out their differences by living a cowboy's life and reenacting scenes from the Old West. But just when hope appears, several "scalawags are caught lyin' like a rug."

During the show, guests will have the opportunity to vote for which pilgrim they think retaliated by taking someone out. Those who guess correctly will receive a prize.

"(The play) is a lot of fun," Owner of The Rock, Laura Wells said. "We're asking everyone to dress western. It's a lot of fun, good entertainment and a fundraiser for The Rock."

The cast includes locals Ted Jackson, Madison Jackson, Jeff Sumner, Janell Sumner, Ashley Sumner, Thomas Rae, Jill Wiram, Mike Fowler, Linda Fowler, Rusty Sinders and Wells.

IDo Rentals will be providing decorations for the event.

Ticket prices are $18 per person, and all proceeds go to The Rock ministry.

On Mondays, The Rock is open after school until 6 p.m. A senior high Bible study takes place at 6 p.m. On Tuesdays and Thursdays, The Rock has an after-school elementary program for students in grades 4-6. They have snacks, games and a lesson.

A college Bible study takes place Thursdays from 6-8 p.m.

Fridays are open after school from 3-6 p.m., for grades 4-12.

The Rock also has a tutoring program for all grades.

"We are also looking at adding on a couple restrooms and an office area," Wells said. "We'll need to start collecting money for that."

To purchase tickets for the murder mystery dinner, call Wells at 812-239-3961 or e-mail her at laurawells63@gmail.com.
