Dinner theatre is a ‘whodunit’ fundraiser


“There’s been a murder in Jackson County. Do you know ‘whodunit’?”

Jefferson Community Theatre is presenting “Room with a Clue,” a dinner theater performance on Oct. 19 and 20 at 7:30 p.m.


Imagine the Jefferson Civic Center full of people enjoying dinner when in rushes a detective to announce the murder. There are several suspects, including Colonel Mustard, Professor Plum, Ms. White, Ms. Scarlett, Ms. Green and Mrs. Peacock. It’s up to the audience to figure out who’s guilty.


The cast will be made up of the Jefferson Community Theatre Board of Directors including Andy Garrison, Christine Dalton, Jennifer Dolezal, Jay Holl, Keith Johnson, Jennifer Malone and Jani Taylor with Beth Laughinghouse working behind the scenes.

All proceeds from the performance will go toward the Jackson County Humane Society’s “Raise the Woof’ campaign for a new animal shelter.

 Admission to the show is $25 and includes the cost of dinner, which will be provided by Sugar and Spice.

 Dinner will include a spinach salad with strawberries and feta cheese, a baked lemon pepper chicken breast, squash casserole, green beans, a dinner roll, peach cobbler and your choice of tea, coffee or water.
