A baseball-themed murder mystery comedy, “Death in the Dugout,” will be presented at 6pm sharp at The Piemont Restaurant in Mount Shasta October 22, 23 and at The Yreka Elks Lodge on October 29. Proceeds will benefit local little league. The Yreka event is supported by Poets & Writers through a grant it has received from the James Irvine Foundation.
The fun and funny dinner theatre production is a new, original play written and directed by Doug York, whose previous work includes murder mystery comedy “Murder On The Rails,” which was performed aboard the Sunset Dinner Train in McCloud for many years. The interactive event invites audience members to solve the zany whodunnit as they gather clues throughout the evening.
Cast includes DeLeon Grabawski, Craig and Linda Vivas, and York. Musician Dave Reynolds and foley artist Barbara Wagner complement the show with sound effects, spy music, baseball themes and classic rock music.
“It’s like watching a cartoon,” commented Wagner, “with larger-than-life characters in hilarious costumes mixing among dinner guests to great comic effect.” “Pretty dang funny,” said Dino McCarty of Granzella’s Deli on opening night, September 18, in Williams.
York has performed his murder mystery comedy in real haunted mansions, vintage railroad cars, in secret castles and for many private parties up and down the West Coast over the past eight years. Doug’s shows are “funny, witty and a bit naughty,” says screenwriter Carolyn Wood. “I’m thrilled to offer my new story that appeals to baseball fans, mystery lovers and folks who love to laugh,” says writer/director performer York. “It’s a great date night and perfect for groups of friends and family who like to come together for an evening of laughter, dining and engaging in a very entertaining story.”
One price of $49 includes the dinner, show, tax and gratuity. For more information or to order tickets, please contact The Piemont Restaurant at at 530-926-2402 or Yreka Elks at 530-598-1103 or visit www.dougyork.com.
