About the show:
Showdown at Madam Yahoo's Saloon!
The Wild West is alive again in Boneyard Gulch (Oklahoma Territory), where, at the notorious Madam Yahoo's Saloon, a town meeting is being held this very evening to elect a new mayor.
Not that there's anything wrong with the old mayor. In fact, incumbent Angus Bovine is on the ballot, determined to put opponent, school marm "Miss" Fanny Swatter, in her place once and for all.
But don't worry about any trouble breaking out, because Marshal Law and Deputy Willie Jitters will be there to maintain order. Well, at least they'll be there.
Please come to the meeting. We need all the registered voters (or non-registered, we're just not real fussy in Boneyard Gulch) we can get!! As in all whodunit presentations, guests can test their own crime-solving abilities by piecing together the evidence and unraveling the mystery!
About the Performance Troupe:
The Whodunit Dinner Theatre has been presenting comedy murder mystery plays with an audience interaction format since January 1991. Based in Oklahoma City, the gypsy company has performed throughout the state, as well as in Arkansas and Texas.
Productions have seven to nine characters, portrayed by our actors, who, during the course of the play, involve audience members by dropping clues, inviting them to act as judges in various contests, or asking for audience participation in specific events.
Toward the end of the evening, guests are given the opportunity to vote on who they think “done it” and why.
Audience participation is strictly voluntary, and our shows are designed to be equally entertaining for those who choose to just sit back and watch. Our productions are always PG rated and suitable for the entire family.
All of our plays are originals, written by Oklahoma playwright, Earline Cottet. We present several different plays each year. Our regular season runs from early October to late May and we present a limited summer season in June, July and August.
And, of course, we do private shows all year long!
