Tulsa Spotlight Theatre’s production of “Murder and the Outlaws” – a Mystery Theatre musical production in celebration of the Oklahoma Centennial – will run at 7 p.m. on successive Fridays, Jan. 26 and Feb. 2. Written by Carol Snow, the mystery is set in the time period leading up to statehood.
The cost of the evening is $30, which includes dinner, drinks and entertainment. The event will take place at the historic Spotlight Theatre, 1381 Riverside Drive in Tulsa. Designed by noted Art Deco architect Bruce Goff and now listed on the National Registry of Historic Buildings, the theater is the home of a Tulsa institution, “The Drunkard,” the longest-running play in the United States, which has been performed on Saturday nights since 1953. The theater also houses the Spotlight Children’s Theatre, which produces a full season of children’s plays every year.
Guests will assume the roles of Oklahoma Territory residents from that era, and will be privy to some exciting events involving Oklahoma outlaws – in this case, singing outlaws. You can bet a murder will take place during the evening, and guests will get to help solve the crime.
Guests should plan to come in costumes from the period or in western wear. Attendees will be mailed a packet containing information about the character whose name they will assume for the evening, together with costume suggestions. For this reason, and because of limited seating, early reservations are recommended.
For more information, call the theater at (918) 587-5030, or visit the Web site at www.spotlighttheater.org for more details.
