Mystery dinner theatre back

R.J. Haney Heritage Village is celebrating 26 years of Villains and Vittles Dinner Theatre Productions. 

This season the Village is proud to present The Mystery of Dutch Charlie.

Set on the stage of the SASCU Amphitheatre at R.J. Haney Heritage Village, “The Mystery of Dutch Charlie” takes place during the summer of the year 1885 in what will one day be Salmon Arm. 

It is a busy time as the railroad is coming through. The city has not yet been established, and one of the few buildings is Dutch Charlie’s Saloon and Brewery, located at what will come to be known as Fourth and Lakeshore. 

The play is based on actual historical events, and all references are accurate. However, as there is very little known of the characters involved. Monty the Mountie is very noble, Jennie is innocent, Dutch and Belle are conniving and evil, and there is murder.
Our talented cast of “The Mystery of Dutch Charlie” is Raymond Hubscher, Sarah Johnston, Rhys Middleton and Tirzah Vetter. Musically accompanied by the Shu-Strings Ukulele Orchestra and dance numbers are choreographed by Tamlin Vetter. 
Joining us for his 10th successful season as writer and director is the local playwright, Peter Blacklock. Peter fills his plays with original musical scores and humorous storytelling that will whisk you away to not so far off places while sharing our history along the way.   

Opening night is July 3, with shows every Wednesday, Friday and Sunday evenings in July and August and a special matinee performance on Thursday, Aug. 15.

Check-in starts at 5 p.m.  Come and enjoy a home-cooked dinner with all the pioneer fixings served from Marjorie’s Tea Room and dessert will follow the play with homemade rhubarb crisp and ice cream. Reservations are a must. Adults $27, seniors $25, children five to 12 are $15 and children four and under are free.
