Mystery Night


The Mission Viejo, Saddleback Valley Elks find a new way to raise funds for charity.

Séance at Midnight, a dinner theater murder mystery was presented by the Mission Viejo, Saddleback Valley Elks under the direction of Susan and John Lee and daughter McKenzie. This was the first Lodge entertainment project by the Lees who are fairly new members of the local Elks Lodge. The Lees brought their professional experience in theatrical production and directing to a cast of amateur but enthusiastic Elk members turned actors. The event was a fundraiser for Elks charities and raised more than $4000.

The cast of thirty-five (35) kept the sold out audience in stitches throughout the three act play which started at the salad and ran through dinner and dessert. The comedy production was packed with musical numbers, dancing, singing and enough nonsense to have the audience applauding and cheering at each and every cast member's appearance and performance. Dinner guests all examined the clues and participated in finding the killer of Harvey Oilman. Enjoying the show was former Mission Viejo Mayor and Elk member Gail Reavis who said, "Great events like this take place regularly in Elks Lodges all over. More people should take advantage of the opportunity to become part of this wonderful organization. Not only do the Elks support worthwhile charities, but members have lots of fun doing it."
