Canebrake Players plan mystery dinner

Wrap your presents and put on your party hats because the Canebrake Players are about to unveil a mystery dinner show about an 80th birthday party attended by two feuding Irish families trying to get their hands on the Wild Irish Rose Whiskey recipe.
Penned by Tony Schwartz and Marylou Ambrose, the show, “Eat, Drink, and Be Murdered,” takes place at an 80th birthday party, where the McFaddens and the O’Rileys have congregated to honor the family matriarch, Grandma Rose. Trouble is, the two clans have hated each other for decades.
The plot twists and turns even when it’s revealed that the cunning Grandma Rose has kept one whiskey ingredient secret all these years. Every week, she goes to the distillery and, behind locked doors, adds the ingredient to the mix.
Keep your eyes and ears open because someone will meet an untimely death, and it’s up to the audience to solve the crime. A prize will be drawn for from those that correctly solve the murder!
The public is invited to join the fun on Thursday, Oct. 1. Proceeds from the dinner theatre event will benefit Canebrake Players and the Marengo County Historical Society.
Doors open at 6 p.m., when guests will have the opportunity to mingle with the cast as they drop hints about themselves and the show and give you a chance ask questions. At 6:30, a dinner made and served by the Demopolis High School Culinary Arts Class will be served.
Tickets are $25 each. For information or tickets visit the Canebrake Craft Corner next to Bluff Hall in Demopolis or call 334-289-9644, or email marengohistory@bellsouth.net. The public is encouraged to purchase tickets at least one week in advance as only a limited number of tickets will be available at the door.
