Dinner theater set

ANSTED — On March 23, Murder and Merriment travels to Hawks Nest to perform at the restaurant overlooking the New River Gorge.

A new mystery will debut that evening as the troupe performs “Murder on the Mountain!” — a dramatic mystery set in a West Virginia bed and breakfast inn in 1933 during the Great Depression.

The story centers on a vagrant mountain man who robs the Sugar Maple Inn and shoots and kills one of the guests. The sheriff tracks him down and brings him back to the scene of the crime to face his accusers.

Reservations are required and can be made by calling 304-658-5212.

For guests who wish to stay overnight, a special package including a room at the lodge and breakfast the next morning can be made when ordering tickets for the murder mystery.

A prize will be awarded to a guest who discovers which suspect commits murder.
