Annie-JeansPlayhouseFriday, August 3, 2017 Lincoln, NH – FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: Help Us Solve a MURDER IN THE MOUNTAINS at Dinner Theatre Event by Jean’s Playhouse

Jean’s Playhouse presents MURDER IN THE MOUNTAINS, a one-night-only dinner theatre event at the Mountain Club on Loon on Wednesday, August 16 from 7-9 PM.

The scenic Kancamagus Highway is a popular place for a drive, but within this quaint vacation spot is a mystery that may have inspired MURDER! In 1891, Thomas Colbath went on an errand, telling his wife Ruth he would be back soon. He did not return for 42 years! Is this historic home haunted by the love-sick spirit of Ruth Colbath? Was something more evil afoot in the disappearance of Thomas Colbath? Is that evil presence wreaking havoc still? Inspired by true events in the White Mountains of New Hampshire, we invite YOU to try to solve these mysteries! Join us, for MURDER IN THE MOUNTAINS. Who will be next?

The three-course dinner menu starts with a Field Green Salad, Choice of Pan Seared Statler Breast of Chicken or Baked North Atlantic Whitefish, finishing with a Blood Orange Mousse with Raspberry Glazed Cookie for dessert. Each table of six will be provided with one bottle of Salmon Creek, California wine to choose from. Cash bar will also be available. All tickets for this special dinner theatre night out are $60.

Annie, The Musical is currently playing at Jean’s Playhouse. With pluck and positivity, little orphan Annie charms everyone’s hearts despite a next-to-nothing start in 1930s New York City. She is determined to find her birth parents who left her at a New York city orphanage run by the evil Miss Hannigan. Helped by her fellow orphans, Annie escapes Miss Hannigan’s orphanage and finds a new home with billionaire Oliver “Daddy” Warbucks, his personal secretary Grace Farrell, and a lovable mutt named Sandy.
