Black Jack’s Hideaway crowded

Tickets for this wild west, ‘murder mystery mayhem’ are just about sold out

You better hustle if you want a chance to get into Black Jack’s Hideaway – the next performance, orchestrated by Director Dawn Adams and her band of senior actors and singers holed up in Chemainus.

Tickets for this wild west, ‘murder mystery mayhem’ are just about sold out, and you might have to engage in a shootout at either Chemainus Foods or the 49th Parallel General Store to get one of the few remaining seats for the Friday evening show Nov. 6 at St. Michael’s Hall.

Or, if you prefer a matinee, there may be tickets left for the 1 p.m. buffet, followed by the 3 p.m. performance Thursday, Nov. 5.

The evening performances Nov. 5 through 7 start with cocktails at 5 p.m., a buffet at 6 p.m., then the show at 7 p.m.

Always popular, Adams’ latest show “will take you on a wild, whacky ride back to the old west.”

It’s a revue set in Black Jack’s Saloon, where “Marshall McLoud (Michael Piccard) and his faithful deputies have a suspicious murder on their hands,” says the playbill.

“Suspects range from jealous dance hall girls, and gamblers, to gunslingers” and Marshal McLoud will be “looking for help from the audience” to solve the mystery.

If you want to fit in, you can show up for the performance in appropriate attire. “Dance hall girls and cowboys welcome,” Adams says.
