Murder Mystery Dinner Theater returns Cottonwood's Blazin' M Ranch for Father's Day fun

Did Daddy Do It In Dem Dar Hills? That's what everyone will be asking this Father's Day, Sunday, June 16th as the Blazin' M Ranch presents their special engagement Western Murder Mystery Dinner.

Grand prize sponsored by Arizona Helicopter Adventures and including wine tasting by Arizona Stronghold Winery, the evening, filled with mystery, music and mayhem will include Blazin' M's signature BBQ dinner with all the fixin's. Supper is served up as guests "witness" some hilarious antics that provide clues to help them determine the callous culprit of the evening's dastardly deed...murder!

The all-‑star cast consists of five of Sedona and the Verde Valley's most acclaimed actors, singers and musicians, including Mike Gilbert, Jeff Masters, Dev Ross and Tom & Shondra.

Mike Gilbert is best known and loved in the Verde Valley as a talented sound designer, composer, guitarist and singer.

Dev Ross, a former writer for Disney, is also an actress and singer who is currently writing Saturday morning shows for Mattel and has two film scripts under consideration by Fox Searchlight and a subsidiary of Lionsgate.

Jeff Masters is a newcomer to the Blazin' M, but not to the stage; his background is highly varied, with work on everything from murder mysteries to Shakespeare and offstage he serves as the force behind Sedona's Thunder Mountain Wellness Center.

Sedona entertainers Tom & Shondra have a long list of credits from having entertained audiences with their own shows across the U.S. Besides being one of the three Sedona Dynamite Divas, Shondra is an actress, singer, songwriter, producer and sound designer.

Tom's talent has landed him leads in Broadway and Opera tours as a singer and actor. Blazin' M Ranch audiences enjoy his regular performances as the zany Otis in their classic cowboy dinner show.

This impressive local troupe will come together to portray some lively and unforgettable characters, including Detective Dandy, singer Tammy Whynot and dark stranger Clint Chisolm, along with Chef Cookie, JR Chickenwing (better known as "Big Daddy") his new bride Bambi and even some unsuspecting guests who could be questioned as suspects! It will be up to the guests to vote during the Guilty Pleasures dessert service as to who they think the culprit is.

Prizes featured come from a number of local merchants and attractions.

Sleuthing commences upon arrival at 5 p.m. when guests check-‑in and receive their "Menu for Murder" outlining the evening's itinerary. While enjoying the tractor pull, museum, shooting gallery, gift shops, wine tasting and other libations in the Copper Spur Saloon, attendees will hone their detective skills as they watch for clues to unfold during these pre‑dinner activities and attractions.

The dinner bell rings at 6:15 p.m. and the suspense continues until 8:30 p.m.

Tickets are now available for this Father's Day‑themed Murder Mystery. Filled with fun for all ages, it is a perfect way to celebrate the Big Daddy in your family.

Reservations are required and can be made by calling the Blazin' M Ranch in Cottonwood at 928-634-0334 or 800-937-8643.

Admission is $35.95 plus tax.
