It’s astounding! Time is fleeting… to see a show before the end of 2013!

The Rocky Horror Sherlock Show!

Doesn’t our new cast for The Return of Sherlock Holmes look great as these Rocky Horror characters?  Hmmm… Maybe there’s a new show idea to be found… hehehehe

Hello again in October, all you ghouls, goblins, mummies, deadies & zombies!

“Sherlock” is one of our most favorite shows to perform, and as an alternate show always available to book besides our main productions, we seem to always get bookings for the show right around Halloween, and those bookings always seem to go well.  And I think the reservation counts for our shows tomorrow night and Saturday night (10/25 & 10/26) speak for themselves how much our audiences love the idea of Sherlock in October as well, because both shows have been SOLD OUT for weeks!  We will be performing for close to 200 people between the two nights!!  No pressure for new “Sherlock” Stage Manager/Noah Wainwright, Christopher Michael Judge, LOL! Friday is our monthly performance at Cherokee Ranch & Castle and Saturday takes us to Elizabeth, CO for the first time as we perform at Spring Valley Golf Club for a fundraiser show for the Lions Club of Elizabeth!  For more information about The Return of Sherlock Holmes or about booking a fundraiser performance, please visit our main website or call 303.408.4246.

Columbo and The Case of The Country Christmas Killer

We have been in rehearsal for our holiday show for this year, Columbo and The Case of The Country Christmas Killer, for a couple weeks now, and the new cast  is just terrific!  Please help us give a warm welcome to newcomer Naomi Tucker as our new Miss Kitty Bonanza, recent addition Donald Feyereisen will be our new Bobby Ray Buttersquash, and we had to split the role of Hannah Bonanza due to scheduling conflicts, which also brings MO Pro regular Kathryn Gourley to the show as she learns her fourth role for us this year!!  Transitioning from Actor to new Stage Manager and now Actor again, our new Billy Ray Butternuts will be played by Christopher Michael Judge!  Rounding out the cast are Jaclyn Snyder and Matthew D. Osmun, reprising their roles of Hannah and Columbo.  The performances at Cherokee Ranch & Castle are easy-peasy to remember: 11/22 & 12/22.  You haven’t heard about our Columbo Christmas show?  Well, then here are the details and rezzie info:

Columbo & The Case of The Country Christmas Killer

@Cherokee Ranch & Castle – 6113 N Daniels Park Rd, Sedalia, CO 80135

November 22nd 7:00-10:30 p.m. – Click here to make your reservation for 11/22.

December 22nd 3:00-6:30 p.m. – Click here to make your reservation for 12/22.

It’s Miss Kitty’s Christmas Jamboree, hosted by Miss Kitty Bonanza, the owner of Miss Kitty’s Saloon, and her daughter who manages the saloon, Hannah Bonanza. Miss Kitty, a long-established society matron, throws this party every year to show off how rich she is. Along with Hannah, in attendance are Billy Ray Butternuts, the line dance instructor at Miss Kitty’s Saloon who seems overly familiar with Miss Kitty, Hannah and just about every other woman in the room, Bobby Ray Buttersquash, Bill Ray’s imbecile cousin who has lived in the shadow of Billy Ray and the Bonanzas his entire life, plus a number of regular patrons, friends and other family. Stumbling upon the festivities is America’s favorite crumpled detective. To say he is a fish out of water at this party is an understatement! When it turns out that everyone isn’t quite so merry at this jamboree, Columbo must solve a mysterious death amidst two-steppin’, line dancin’, booze drinkin’ and Christmas carolin’!! This show is family friendly, however gunshots are fired. At least 6 audience members become characters in the show, so if you have someone you’d like to ‘volunteer’ for us, bring ’em along. Also, be prepared to two-step and line dance so bring your dancin’ boots!

In the Castle Great Hall! $70/person includes limited exploration of the Castle, Performance, Supper Buffet from Gourmet Catering, Dessert and Coffee. Cash bar. Seating is limited so please get your rezzies in at the links above or call 303.688.4600. Doors open promptly at the listed start times and your timely arrival is appreciated by your fellow patrons.

Solve the mystery and win a fabulous prize!  You’ll Die Laughing!!!

“Columbo” is still also available to book for both public and private performances through January 31st, but if are thinking of booking us, please contact us at 303.408.4246 right away, as availability may be challenging!

Looking ahead to 2014, MO Productions is very happy to announce that we are bringing back the most popular show of 2012, The Grapes of Death: A Vintage Murder Mystery.  However, we will now be offering the show to wineries, vineyards, wine societies and clubs, country clubs/private clubs and for fundraiser shows only, to create a unique experience for the specialized clients/venues.  Will we make an exception and do a regular public performance of this show?  If you have a solid lead/offer to make us, please call us and we’ll be happy to discuss it with you!  😉  Our revamped cast includes Kathryn Gourley reprising her role as Henrietta Hottentotten has got it made, and Matthew D. Osmun, originally Jean Pierre, will fill the shoes of Simon Spade.  Donald Feyereisen slinks in to play Jean Pierre with flair, Naomi Tucker, see above, takes on Victoria Lawless with a voice like the air, and Jillian J. Price, our new Maybelline from “Hillbillies”, is the new Anna Nutherplees, who drinks because life isn’t fair!  We will be performing the show for the first time with the new cast at Wild Women Wine in January!  Tickets went on sale for their VIP Club last weekend and the general public may make reservations starting November 1st.  Seating is limited to only 40 people per performance, so don’t wait to call!

The Grapes of Death: A Vintage Murder Mystery

It appears someone at the 1942 Vintage of the Year awards dinner is a bit… sour!

Amidst all this craziness I am also working in writing our next new shows, The Dick Van Dead Show, which will be available next Spring, and A Wake, A Mistake & A Wedding Cake – A Musical Murder Mystery, which is currently slated for the summer.  We are taking bookings now for these two new shows as well as any of the ones mentioned above.  PLUS… we may also announce at this time that Cherokee Ranch & Castle has opted not to renew their exclusivity on Antiques Revengeshow for 2014, so we may now offer this fantastically creepy & funny show to ALL venues and clients!!

Nuff said, eh?!  Well, just one more thing: Thank you, as always, for your continued support and word-of- mouth advertising.  Don’t gorge yourselves on too much candy next week, folks!

Kind Regards,

Matthew D. Osmun – Owner/Director/Actor
