Attention! Rising stars in Fallon

Kathleen Williams-Miller
Frankie is a lovely eight-year-old domestic short hair. She is midnight black with gorgeous green eyes. Her person moved out-of-state and was unable to take her, so she came to CAPS. Frankie gets along well with everyone! She likes children, dogs and cats. She is looking for that purrfect home where she’ll be appreciated, petted and loved.

Be prepared for fireworks at the debut of The Dead Cat Bounce on Oct. 26 at the Fallon Convention Center. This year’s CAPS Murder Mystery has a star-studded cast that you won’t want to miss. It’s amazing how talented our director, actors and actresses are. If you have attended past productions you know how much fun and delightful the show will be. That said, I would like to introduce our cast.

Michael Peters is Hermon Legions, the CEO of Pounce Arena, Northern Nevada’s newest indoor feline trampoline experience. He’s cutthroat, vicious, and always plotting.

Diane Peters is Terry Staffordshire, Hermon’s executive assistant. She’s a type A who suffers from control issues and a need for affirmation. Her smiling façade masks a psychotic personality. Diane is also our director.

Teresa Summers is Bichon Picard Hermon’s ex-wife. She’s smart and the brains behind the development. Because of the divorce, she’s been given no credit. She’s furious!

Zip Upham is Dandie Bordeux, the CEO of The Canine Room, which is Northern Nevada’s first dog adventure-escape room. He’s the jokester of inappropriate comments.

Steve Fraker is Detective Saluki, a gruff investigator who is annoyed by everyone and everything. The big question is, can he solve this crime?

Bret Silva and Rob McKinney play employees who have their own reasons to do the dirty deed.

Please join us Saturday, Oct. 26, at the Fallon Convention Center for a fun-filled night of excellent food, drinks, entertainment and auction. The doors open at 5 p.m., and the show starts at 6 p.m. The dinner will be served during intermission. There will be a cash bar serving wine, beer and soda. Tickets are $40 or $280 for a table of eight. Tickets can be purchased at Jeff’s Copy Express, 3-Dimension Shipping, Maggie’ Playhouse and the CAPS shelter.
