St. Claire Foundation Planning Friday the 13th Mystery Dinner Theatre
MOREHEAD, Ky. – Plans are well underway for the St. Claire Foundation’s annual Mystery Dinner Theatre, “The Curse of Devil’s Gulch,” to be held on Friday the 13th of July at Morehead State University’s Adron Doran University Center.
“We thought a Friday the 13th would be a perfect night for a mystery dinner theatre, and “The Curse of Devil’s Gulch” is a great mystery for Friday the 13th,” said Susette Redwine, who chairs the event’s planning committee.
Until a little over a year ago – on Friday the 13th of May 2011 – Devil’s Gulch was a quiet little town. But then the Gates Mansion spontaneously combusted into a terrifying ball of fire, and witnesses claim distraught ghost-like beings flew out of the windows, wailing in terror. The mansion was situated next to a historic cemetery on the edge of town.
When the moon is full ever since, townspeople swear they smell acrid smoke and hear mournful wailing coming from the site, and local animals vanish. With another Friday the 13th on the horizon, residents are terrified of what the night may have in store.
Those who attend “The Curse of Devil’s Gulch” will have the opportunity to solve a mystery or two. The evening will begin with a reception at 6:30 with dinner to follow at 7:30.
Proceeds from the benefit will assist St. Claire Regional Medical Center’s elder-care services through remodeling of its Transitional Care Unit. TCU, which opened in 1996 on SCR’s fifth floor, is designed for patients who aren’t quite able to go home and need help in making that transition.
The Foundation’s Mystery Dinner Theatre is open to the public. The reservation deadline is July 1.
Per-person tickets for the dinner are $100. “Friends of St. Claire Tables”, with reserved, preferred seating for eight people are available at $1,000. Dress will be evening casual.
