From left, Sheldon Metz, John Vornholt and Patrick Baum play out a bit of dialogue during the Murder Mayhem troupe's murder-mystery dinner theatre performance of "The Pinkston Trio Reunion…and Murder!" on Saturday, June 7, 2014, at Sam-Witches and Such, 6502 E. Tanque Verde Road, in Tucson, Ariz. Between ad-libbed dialogue and figuring out 'whodunnit', audience members munch away on dinner courses with some cast interaction sprinkled in. Admission with food and drinks costs $35, but varies by the venue. The series of plays are written and directed by cast members Sheldon Metz and John Vornholt. Metz founded the Tucson Alliance of Dramatic Actors, which the troupe is a part of. Photo by Mike Christy / Arizona Daily Star
