Kitscoty Murder Mystery Supports Community Hall

Nearly 950 people were transported to the “Bourdreaux Sisters Winery” at the Kitscoty Community Hall the weekend of April 12–14 as they took in the Kitscoty Community Dinner Theatre’s performance of Michael Druce’s “Wine, Cheese, and Murder.”

Each year since 2003, with the exception of the COVID lockdown years, volunteers have banded together to present a dinner theatre fundraiser in support of the Kitscoty Community Hall. Set at a wine tasting, this year’s performance provided a light-hearted murder mystery with a slew of quirky characters to suspect.

The warm and welcoming atmosphere of the event stood as testimony of the commitment community members have for this facility. In his introduction to the performance, director Chad Tabish highlighted that nearly 200 volunteers were involved in putting this year’s show on, from the cast to the ushers to the cleanup crew. While the cast began their weekly rehearsals in January, other teams, like the meal prep teams, focused most of their volunteer labour in the week leading up to the performances.

This year, the Friday and Saturday evening shows sold out at 350 seats apiece, while the Sunday matinee nevertheless had the feeling of a full house with just under 250 tickets sold.

This event is a great testament to the community of Kitscoty for creating such a perfect pairing of talent and heart, and to the sponsors who helped make it shine.
