I participated in a murder Saturday and it was a lot of fun. Poor Ricky Lee Autrey, he will be missed by the Class of 58. This was a murder mystery dinner theater at the Big K Guest Ranch near Elkton.
The play was sponsored by the Big K and performed by the Poison Pen Players offering audience interaction in determining who the nefarious villain was that offed the hapless Ricky Lee. Of course it was all in fun and the turn out (considering the locale) was very good.
The performances were well done and the music took me back to my high school years. The car made an appearance at the ranch also. It is an very nicely restored 1956 Ford Victoria in a sleek black. I can remember my brother had a 55 Crown Victoria back in those days and they were HOT!.
The Poison Pen Players have other presentations of ‘56 Vicky scheduled, the soonest being this weekend, Mar. 26 at the Florence Events Center. Reservations can be made by following this link. Other performances will be in Coos Bay, Cottage Grove and Eugene.
The Big K Guest Ranch driveway is just a few miles out of Elkton, but then you have a few more miles driving until you reach the resort area. The cabins are nice and well maintained but don’t expect to watch TV in your room. They have TVs but they only have DVD & VCRs for them available at the front desk.
If you want, you can also schedule a hunting or fishing trip with the guide service at Big K. Contact them through this link. Oregon has a lot of wonderful places to visit. This is another great one to check out. See you out there.
