The Blue Moon Dinner Theatre presents an original comedic murder mystery, “Mulligan’s Island and the Lagoon of Doom,” playing live on stage Fridays and Saturdays now through Oct. 19 at 215 E. Main St. in downtown Johnson City.

Written by Clayton Van Huss, this Murder Mystery takes you to a castaway island where someone meets their doom and it’s up to the loveable shipwrecked cast to try to figure it out. One fateful day several years ago the S.S. Anchovy was lost at sea with all hands. Today, a luxury timeshare company is scouting what appears to be a deserted jungle island, but when they discover signs of life they scheme to get the island to themselves. Come join the loveable bumbling first mate, Mulligan, the Short tempered Captain and the rest of the castaways in “Mulligan’s Island and the Lagoon of Doom.”

“Our themed menu of roasted pork with a Polynesian sauce and a dessert of banana cream pie set the mood for the show, while the trivia and crime solving make it a wonderful interactive experience for the whole family,” said Edward Breese, Blue Moon’s artistic director.

The Mulligan’s Island cast includes Van Huss as the Captain, Breese as the Billionaire, Nancy Hope Major as Dovie, Stephanie Sherwood as Virginia, Ashley May King as Carrie Anne, Sean Read as The Doc, Dave Carter as the yacht skipper, Katie Runciman as Miss Hooper and Dan Ott as Mulligan.

Tickets are $39.99 plus tax and can be purchased by going online to www.bluemoondinnertheatre.com or by calling the box office at 232-1350. Meal upgrades and vegetarian options are available with a 24-hour notice. The Blue Moon is currently a bring-your own-beer facility.
