Murder in Deadwood

Today was the second annual Murder Mystery at the WIN gathering in Boulder Beach Campground. I missed the premier event last year and I have to admit it was the main reason we came this year. The cast of 20 went to the local thrift stores and created wonderful costumes. The actors did a fantastic job with their portrayals and I was highly entertained.

I'm sorry I didn't get good shots of all 20 actors. Here Black Barbara (Jody) conspires with Banker Bonnie (Brad.)

Gambling Jack (Phil) seems to be having a minor costume malfunction while talking to Harry High-Stakes (Peter.)

Minnie Money (Joanne) tries to sweet-talk her father Montgomery Money (Paul.)

Billy the Bartender (Mark) seems overwhelmed by Henrietta High-Stakes (Carolyn.)

Anna Belle (June) confronts Holly Hickok (Nancy.)

Saloon Girl Taffy Garrett (Vivian) really sparkles. (Actually I think Viv was born to be on stage!)

"This man is dead!" declares Marshal Dalton (Tom) while standing over Mitch Maverick (Randy.)

Also appearing were Sheriff Sam (Bob), Sally Starr (Bobbe), Elizabeth Money (Carol), Jesse Wales (Chuck), Banker Bob (Janet), Poker Alice (Judy), and Clay Coldwell (LJ.) Three people, including my brilliant sister Diana, guessed who the killer was. Director Joey deserves a lot of credit for putting the show together. Plus she managed to keep everybody organized - quite a feat for a bunch of WINs.
