Dinner and a Show

The Sounds of Murder:  The CKGR Radio Playhouse Of The Air is coming to Copake Falls NY., broadcasting live from the tasty buffet room at Our Lady Of Hope Parish. If this show doesn't go well the station will go out of business. It certainly doesn't help that the station owner's

daughter is trying to sabotage the show! The radio mystery becomes too real when someone actually kicks the bucket.


This murder mystery is sure to please, with suspense, love, strange noises, and a cast of wacky characters including: producer Frederika Farnsworth, dramatic radio actors Gilbert De Bernaise & Vivian Fredricksberg, novice actor Shelly Stalling, the station

owner’s daughter Roberta, and Foley artist “Foley” Roberts. You'll always remember THE SOUND OF MURDER.


The Sound Of Murder on Friday the 13th will be performed live and in-person on Friday January 13th, 2023 at Our Lady Of Hope Parish, 8074 State Route 22 in Copake Falls, NY.


Order your tickets NOW by emailing Mary at or calling her at (518) 755-9763.


Tickets for adults 14 and older are $25.00. A buffet dinner is included with the show. The doors open at 5:00 pm for salad & fellowship. The show begins at 5:30 pm. Enjoy a great night out to beat the winter blues and support Our Lady of Hope Parish.

While grousing at the local watering hole, Walter tells Henry that he has just the thing to solve Henry’s problem.
