Murder and a Meal at Lake Barkley State Resort Park’s Dinner Theater

Tell me this doesn't sound like a good time!

As part of its Dinner Theater series, Lake Barkley State Resort Park in Cadiz, Kentucky presents a murder mystery on Friday, Sept. 24, 2010, from 7 p.m. until 9 p.m. where the audience tries to figure out whodunit.

“Check-out Time,” a murder mystery about a troubled innkeeper and her staff, will be performed by Laughing Corpse Production Company out of Nashville, Tenn., with lots of audience participation (click on the link and you can see a video). 

The production company's website offers this description of the "Check-out Time" murder mystery:
"Welcome to the Sleep N’ Snore, a peaceful little inn nestled in the quiet hills of the country. Proprietress Minnie Barr and the inn’s staff, Manny Gerr, Kit Shennette and Hoss Kepping are struggling to keep the inn afloat despite a recent rash of bad luck. Unfortunately, things really start to heat up when Minnie’s ex-husband, Jack Cuzzi, makes an unexpected visit bent on blackmail!"

While piecing the clues together, guests will also enjoy an all-you-can-eat buffet, including salad bar, parmesan crusted chicken and beef tips, dessert and more. 

Tickets are on sale now for $40 a person until Sept. 15 after which prices will increase to $45 a person.  Limited seating is available, so get your tickets now!  For tickets or additional information call the lodge at 1-800-325-1708 or email Mary Schmidt at

My family (wife and three kids, sometimes the dog) and I have been RV campers since 2007. We own a 2000 Trail-Lite B22 Bantam hybrid, our tow vehicle is a 2006 Trailblazer LT EXT (5.3 V8 with 3.73 Rear Axle Ratio), and our setup includes the Equalizer sway controller. Looking to upgrade the camper in the near future, but until then we get out 2-3 times a month in season.
