Upcoming Nights

September 24 | 1 p.m.

Travel back to the Old West and the Silver Skunk Saloon Centennial Celebration, where the whiskey will be flowing, and everyone will be having themselves a fine old time. Come on down and join the Sheriff, the young widowed School Teacher, the crusty and jaded Saloon Owner, the handsome and confident Singing Cowboy, and the Madam with a heart of fool’s gold – each has a secret to hide. It’ll be a hootenanny to die for!

October 14 | 7 p.m.

The born-into-wealth Mrs. Mary Astor-Turf has been receiving messages from the great beyond! She believes her long-deceased grandfather has been trying to send her a message from the afterlife, and she enlists the help of a renowned and eccentric psychic medium to help her to communicate with him any way she can. Unbeknownst to Mary, every person that knows her thinks that she is crazy and wants to put her wealth to good use; her unfaithful husband Teddy and his deceitful mistress. Heck, even her own brother wants a cut of the dough! We look forward to seeing you at the séance!

October 28 | 7 p.m.

You are an extra on a 1940’s movie set where things are bound to go terribly wrong during tonight’s shoot.  There is something less than “joie de vivre” going on, and it’s not just the fly in the soup… it’s a Whodunit!  Was it the frazzled director, the hunky leading man, the ditzy starlet, the aging diva or the flamboyant, sharp-tongued wardrobe master?  One thing is certain – Hollywood will never be the same again!!!
