The Macon County Community Foundation Players are back for the 2013 Mystery Dinner Theater. It’s going to be a dangerous night on a remote desert isle in the Caribbean where a private cruise ship has arrived by mistake. Watch out for smugglers, crooked business professionals, and even a murderer. You’ll have a chance to spy on the passengers and crew on the cruise ship’s maiden voyage. Little do the passengers realize that the “Guppy” has reached the wrong island – an island with only one inhabitant – Gunther Benn – a suspicious character watching for “spies.” Blackmail, romance, and intrigue lead to a most unusual murder. Clues to solve the crime are available for $1 each from the cast. Come and compete for the evening’s prize with the other tables and Colonel Custard. Tickets are only $40 each, including dinner. Expect special guest appearances by Mayor Joe Collins, Sheriff Robbie Holland and more. With your help, perhaps the Chief of the Island Police will be able to solve the crime.The production will take place at Fat Buddies BBQ in Franklin on Feb. 22 and 23, and again on March 2, all performances are at 6:30 p.m. Reserve your tickets or tables in advance, by calling Karen Stiwinter at (828)524-5200.
