Interactive dinner theater at Tweetsie to benefit hospital

“Death at the Double D Ranch” will have actors and diners trying to discover who put an end to ranch boss Dray Duncan.

“Death at the Double D Ranch” is an interactive dinner theater presented by the committee for the 35th annual Blowing Rock Hospital Benefit and Luncheon. 

The show takes place at Tweetsie Railroad at 6:30 p.m. on June 28. All proceeds will benefit the new medical facility being developed in the Blowing Rock community. 

Tickets are $90 per person and include dinner, drinks, and the show. Tickets can be purchased by contacting Megan Lynch Ellis at (828) 262-9564 or (  

The production will feature such characters as exotic Purdy Filly, played by Shelia Deal, a popular dancer at Lucy Lipp’s saloon With an updo, a beauty spot and her fishnets, she’s a dancer right down to her tap shoes. 

Purdy works long hours for Miss Lucy at the saloon. She’s not the brightest bulb on the tree, but could she be clever enough to have something to do with the death of Dray Duncan? 

Dusty Trales, aka Sid Greene, is the singing cowboy. New to the Double D, Dusty always wears his cowboy hat and bandanna. 

He is rarely without his lariat, which he uses to rope the cattle before branding them at the ranch. Since he’s on the ranch at the time of Dray Duncan’s untimely passing, Dusty is a suspect. Why would he want to murder his new boss?
