Solve murder mystery on dinner 'cruise'

Proscenium Players presents "Murder on the Lust Boat." The Players' fourth annual interactive Murder Mystery Dinner opens Jan. 18 at Gold Dust West.

A spoof on "The Love Boat" television series, "the Lust Boat" is what you don't want on a cruise, said director, producer and emcee Carla Wilson.

With Captain Ivah Dinghy (Geoff Moore) at the helm, it's a cruise bound for mayhem. The antics of Social Director Monique Lewdinsky (played by Johanna Hudson), who creates new lusty games such as Tickle-Me Twister and Mazola Wrestling, is the inspiration of the boat's nickname.

In the ship's Cask and Cleavage Lounge, entertainers Winnie and Nyona Juggs (Heidi Hampton and Krystle Gordon) show more talent at gossip than entertainment.

"The Lust Boat," holds a ship-load of dark secrets. Everyone harbors secrets but the biggest mystery is VIP guest Rico (played by Kevin Gallegos), who keeps everyone guessing and gossiping about who he really is.

"There's a mystery man on the ship and all have reasons why they think he's there and why they're afraid of him," Wilson said. "Rico is the man of mystery and nobody knows who he really is."

The show is recommended for ages 13 and older.

Ticket prices are $38 general admission and $35 for students, seniors age 60 and older, PPI, BAC, Gold Dust West, and Wildhorse Theater members.-

A no-host bar is open throughout the show. Murder Mystery Dinners are 6 p.m. Jan. 18, 19, 25, 26, Feb. 1 and 2.

Tickets can be purchased online at or by calling Carla Wilson at 775-781-0664.
