TO STORY >> Western theme at Lonoke show

Leader staff writer

“Who Shot the Sheriff?” is the question many will try to answer during the Lonoke County Museum’s comedy-murder mystery 6 p.m. Saturday at 215 SE Front St.

Tickets are $15 and $25 per couple. It is the museum’s biggest fundraiser of the year.

Sheriff Slim Pickens has been fatally shot in Old Town, a town so small everyone takes turns being the town drunk.

“There are all kinds of twists and turns with several suspects as a couple of strangers come to town,” museum director Sherryl Miller said.

“See if you’re more clever than the old gossip ladies with the clues left to solve the murder,” Miller said.

The table that solves the murder will win a prize. Some of the audience member will read from envelopes revealing who done it.

“Expect a fun time and lots of laughs,” Miller said.

Old Town has residents such as Deputy Dudley Doright, Roland Tumbleweed, Clyde Eastwood, Marshal Marshall, M.T. Jugs, Bertie Tommy Hawk, Blondie Goodnight, Smith N. Wesson, Emma Gambler, Lucky Fullhouse and others.

The event is western theme and attendees are encouraged to dress in western attire. The foods available are Get Along Little Doggies, cow chips and trail mix.

The Lonoke County Museum and Genealogy Room are open from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Saturday. Admission to the museum is free.
