Middle Georgians can go back to the Wild West as Murder at the Deadwood Saloon returns to the Museum of Aviation in Warner Robins for two encore performances.
The mystery dinner theater features a new murder from when the show was staged at the museum in February as well as a different solution in each performance this time, said Jenny Maas, Museum of Aviation Foundation finance director.
Its the same basic storyline, but the murderers have changed, and weve changed the evidence. We purchased the script and have kind of made it our own, she said.
The evening will begin at 6:30 p.m. with a social hour during which theater-goers will join cast members in a poker game at the saloon. The guests will get a program giving a brief description of the 15 characters, who will be dropping clues during the social hour.
Once dinner starts, the murder happens, and everyone in the Deadwood Saloon is a suspect, said Maas, who also plays Sally Starr in the show. Everyone has a reason they dont want the $100,000 prize for the poker tournament to be given away.
Throughout the evening, members of each table can work together to try to solve the mystery.
There is a lot of music, sound effects and comedy and a lot of involvement between the characters and audience, so it is interactive, and people have a lot of fun with it, Maas said.
Dinner will be provided by Sonnys, and a cash bar will be available. Guests are invited to wear Western attire.
