NORMAN — Tickets are on sale for a Valentine's Day tradition, a murder mystery dinner that raises money for Sooner Theatre, 101 E Main St.
“A Killer Reunion” finds revenge on the schedule at an all-'80s class reunion. A wild bunch of characters returns to Southside High School, where the high school counselor sets their lives on some unfortunate paths. Bad advice leads to a murder, which audience members are invited to solve by purchasing clues from cast members.
All proceeds benefit the programs and operations of Sooner Theatre, an anchor of Norman's downtown arts district.
Tickets are $75 each or $600 for a table of eight. The dinner and shows are Feb. 14-16 at The Railhouse, formerly Old Town Plaza, 102 W Eufaula St. Doors open at 6:30 p.m.
“We love that we've created this Valentine's weekend tradition. Patrons love to make a date night of it, and everyone has a great evening of laughter and intrigue, even if it isn't always politically correct,” said Executive Director Jennifer Baker.
The adults-only event also includes a special silent auction item. Audience members will be able to bid on a role in next year's show. The role can be purchased for the buyer or for a person of the buyer's choice.
The show is written by James Briggs of the Norman Parks and Recreation Department. Cast members include Briggs, Kerri Brinkman White, Jody White, Leasa Stewart, Terri Nevin-Hesselroth, Jay Potts, Mark Krittenbrink, Sharon Pyeatt, Jud Foster and Shirley Franklin. Last year's auction winner will make a special appearance, and special guest John (Count Gregore) Ferguson may drop in.
Tickets may be purchased in advance at the box office or by calling 321-9600. Box office hours are 10 a.m. to noon and 2 to 5 p.m. Tuesday through Friday.
