Blood Suede Shoes: A Sergeant Elvis Presley Murder Mystery By Robby Henson (Breaking Up with Elvis; The Wonder Team; Good Blues Tonight!) World Premiere event! June 9 – July 1 It’s the swinging ‘60s, and a threat to young Sergeant Elvis Presley’s life during stormy weather over Scotland forces an emergency landing near a spooky castle where London’s posh set have gathered for a séance. In this zany new murder mystery mash-up, cultures clash, the body count rises, and a dashing young Elvis must use every bit of his down-home common sense and military training to catch a murderer! Family fun!! Rated G.
Farce of Nature By Jamie Wooten, Jessie Jones, and Nicholas Hope July 4 – July 22 Welcome to Reel ‘Em Inn, the finest little fishing lodge in the Ozarks! Well, it used to be, but lately business is slow … until a jittery gangster from Chicago shows up, followed by a string of surprise guests, each with something hilariously fishy up their sleeves! Slamming doors, mistaken identity, crazy disguises, and an increasingly awful stench, make for a wacky roller coaster ride of a comedy, and some good ole Southern fried fun! Famiy fun! Rated G.
Kosher Lutherans By William Missouri Downs July 25 – August 12 Hanna and Franklyn are the perfect LA couple who desperately want to have a baby of their own, but can’t. Enter Alison, a naïve, unmarried 18-year-old runaway from Iowa who’s pregnant. It’s an adoption match made in heaven…except Alison doesn’t realize Hanna and Franklyn are Jewish, which leads to a few hysterical — and heartwarming — twists and turns on the road to parenthood. “A delightful comedy with message and heart.” (Louisville Courier Journal). Rated PG.

August 18-19 Co-host of the nationally-syndicated and hugely popular ‘The Lee and Hayley Show’, airing locally on WTVQ Channel 36, and a favorite here at Pioneer Playhouse, Lee Cruse has been making people laugh for over two decades!
