Advance reservations are now being accepted for the 14th annual Mystery Dinner Theater and Auction held March 1 to benefit The Ark Domestic Violence Shelter.

“This year’s theme is ‘Gunsmoke’ and will be held at the Brownwood Country Club,” Ark executive director Sherri Ornelas said. “The cast includes local celebrities with Larry Mathis as the playwright and director.”

Cast members scheduled to appear include Diane Mosley, Amber Willson, Charlotte Tucker, Pam Niblett, Teresa Baird, Kim Cruz, John Propst, Jeff Taggart, Mario Hurtado and Richard Niblett.

Chris Cadenhead will be auctioneer.

The Ark is a domestic violence and sexual assault shelter serving Brown, Coleman and Comanche counties.

Ornelas said ticket sales are limited to the first 200 people to avoid the possibility of overcrowding.

“Therefore, no tickets will be sold at the door,” Ornelas said.

Seating will begin at 6:30 p.m. with a buffet dinner at 7 p.m. and the live auction following. All platinum, gold and silver underwriter ticket holders are invited to a preview party from 5:30 to 6:30 p.m.

General admission tickets are $35.

To purchase tickets, reserve a table or underwrite the event, call (325) 643-2699.
