On Sunday, Dec. 10, from 5:30 to 9 p.m., Sound Bites Grill is offering a special holiday murder mystery dinner called Merry Murder, an event sure to entertain guests with this whodunit mystery theater as well as get their holiday festivities underway.

Join TV show star Merry Mistletoe as she’s about to host her 100th Holiday Show Extravaganza — until all the entertainers she’s booked suddenly quit to go work for Santa and she’s left with no one to entertain but a gangster elf named Bubba and her show’s debauched producer, JJ Jingle.

Things get worse when someone dies and Detective Dandy Dick enters the fray. But since this is showbiz, the show must go on — even if there’s a dead body and everyone is a suspect.

Cast members list as a who’s-who of Sedona and the Verde Valley with Emmy Award-winning writer and actress Dev Ross as Detective Dandy Dick; popular Sedona singer actor entertainer Tom Jepperson as the crazy gangster elf; radio DJ, actor and singer Brad Roberts as sleazy TV producer JJ Jingle; and singer, actor and entertainer Shondra Jepperson as Merry Mistletoe, the Hostess with the Mostess.

All four performers have extensive backgrounds in theater, TV, film and production. Ross is a former writer for Disney who has written for Universal, Mattel and Amazon TV.

Besides being heard on the air at Yavapai Broadcasting, audiences have enjoyed Roberts’ performances in acting and singing roles in venues around the Verde Valley.

Tom and Shondra Jepperson have entertained audiences with their own shows across the U.S. and continue to be local favorites performing in a variety of venues.

While guests fit together clues during the evening’s breakout scenes and holiday singalongs, they will also enjoy a delicious four-course dinner and gourmet dessert that Sound Bites has designed especially for this evening.

Tickets can be purchased by calling Sound Bites Grill at 282-2713 or visiting soundbitesgrill.com.
