SKITS spring play, The Groom Has Cold Feet, has all the twists and turns of a murder mystery set in an 1890's western town. Play dates are Friday, April 27 at 6:30 p.m., Saturday, April 28 at 6:30 p.m., and Sunday, April 29 at 2 p.m., at the CC United Methodist Church, located at Highway 39 & Highway YY, Shell Knob.

When the reviled Albert Webster turns up murdered the morning of his wedding to local sweetheart Kayla May Blossom, there’s no shortage of suspects in the sleepy town of Pine Grove. Luckily, there’s also no shortage of town gossips, each with her own theory acted out in hilarious slow-mo fashion for the audience to see. Could it have been saloon girl Darleen, the last one to see Albert and the girl he dumped for Kayla May? Was it Virgil, the reluctant best man and ex-boyfriend of Kayla May? Maybe it was lonely Harley, who snuffed out Albert to steal his bride? How about Hazel, the about-to-be-evicted mother of the bride? It’s going to take all of Sheriff Tickle’s investigative skills, along with his sidekick daughter, Sarah, and extra help from the audience, to solve this animated mystery.

Tickets are $7 and available at Jug n Plug, Arvest Bank, and the Chamber in Shell Knob. Or, people may call or text Barb VanDusen at 417-665-9763 to arrange $7 Will-Call tickets.
