Public Shows

Golden Aye

Jayme Bond, international playboy spy in His Majesty’s Secret Service, has been accidentally transported from 1795 to today. Along with him are Russian Ivana Poppemoff, and Jayme’s latest Bond girl, Chocolat Fondu, happy to be out of the French Revolution. Jayme & his ladies have arrived in time for an exhibition of Scottish works in an upscale museum, put together by the curator Art Popp, his assistant Pepper Mashay & Burns Historian, Flora McDonald. Will tempers flare? Will it all work out? Or will it be “an aye for an aye”?

Scotch on the Rocks

Global warming means Anthropologist Ann probes reports of  3 bodies sprung up from the melting permafrost. Accompanying her: a military observer & obligatory nosy reporter. What dangers might those bodies pose? Will they all end up buried in their work?

Valentine’s Day Massacre

The year is 269 A.D., the fashion = togas. Valentinus, an opportunist, has been running around marrying people – for a price. Unfortunately, this has upset Insomnia, the mother of lovely Amora, who has recently been wed to an aspiring stand-up comedian & street philosopher named Humerus. This has also put a crimp in the plans of Phenomena, who’d set her sights on Humerus. All this could culminate in a muss, a fuss & a terminus!

An Irish Stew

An’ it’s a wake for yon grandfather, then, is it? Sure and begorrah, all of his surviving feisty relatives have gathered together to toast the recently deceased ol’ man — and to find out whether the rumours of his having found the leprechauns are true. Or were his mumblings about little green men just from too much imbibing of green beer? Will his cache of genuine rainbow jewels turn out to be just so many sham rocks? Is this a pot o’gold, or An Irish Stew?

Birds, Bees and BLOOD

At the rehearsal dinner for Honey Bee and Jackdaw Bird, a hive of resentment and jealousy is about to boil over. Will Honey’s father, Bumble, keep paying to keep Honey sweet? Will Venus Flyterapp, the maid of honour, do away with what’s bugging her? Will Queenie Bee, Honey’s mother, get her daughter out of the nest? As we learn about the birds and the bees, someone is sure to get stung.

Cooking Up A Murder

Chef Kory Ander is in a stew. She has two sous chefs, Vanilla Cream and Cinnamon Hart – and one of them seems to be out to get Kory into hot water. Chef Kory also has to deal with Chez Maison’s owner, Horst Doover, who worked his way up from owning a diner in Okotoks; and the snooty hostess, Rutabaga Puray, who uses her position for a little social climbing. Added to the mix is Chef Al Imentary, Kory’s rival and former cooking school fellow student. Everyone’s in quite a stir at Chez Maison’s Grand Opening, and the shiitake is going to hit the fan, because someone could be cooking up a murder.

Foul Play

Em Forcer gets an extreme workout when she signs up to coach the neighbourhood sports team. It’s a motley crew. Cherry Flip is light on her feet, while Ima Clutz is tripping over hers. And rival, Dennis Anyone, proves he’s just a fool for love. Suddenly, everyone wants a match-up. And, with these fierce competitors, losing is not an option. Because the penalties are deadly.

Dark & Dreadful Druid Death

Samhain approaches, the Druid night set aside for the celebration of those who have passed before (known to most people as Halloween).  Druids from all levels of mastery have gathered for the occasion, bringing with them relics worth a fortune to add power and solemnity to this night of nights.  Unfortunately, where wealth and power gather, so do greed, scandal, and ruthless ambition.  Add to the mix a defrocked Druid priestess who dabbles in the black arts, and murder is inevitable.

April Showers Bring More Murders

Life’s unpredictable for weather reporter, Gail Force. Even rival Crystal Bahl, a psychic, has better luck with her predictions – at least when it comes to Calgary weather. That is, until a rain man comes to town … and all hail breaks loose.

Murder at Mistletoe Mall

Join us in the Reindeer Restaurant for Mistletoe Mall’s annual appreciation and award party. The recipient of Employee of the Year receives  a trip for two to Paris and a 50,000 cash prize. Tonight there will be one winner and one big loser. Who will it be? Come join us at the Christmas celebration that promises mistletoe, madness and murder.

Murder at the Masquerade

It’s New Year’s Eve in Deadwood Lake and very select few have been invited to the Mayor’s home for an exclusive Masquerade Party.  When a town like this is cursed with scandal, one can’t wonder what will happen when bickering townsfolk come together on a wintery night to celebrate such an occasion.  Ringing in the New Year is the last thing you’ll want on the menu, as murder is served up with a side of mayhem, and the main dish is something you’ll definitely want to sink your knife into, or die trying…
