ROANOKE, Va. (WDBJ) -There’s a lot of mystery happening in Vinton, Virginia. The town has a murder mystery case on its hands and it’s all surrounding desserts.

Jimmy Barton is the leader of the drama team at Lighthouse Bible Church. He says the team has worked a lot of hours putting together the play “Just Desserts.” “The whole county has had all their contestants enter their desserts and there’s three left. It can get kind of dicey. People want to win! Unfortunately, people will go to some extreme measures to win this contest,” explained Barton.

To get answers to all the strange happenings, Lighthouse Christian Academy is asking you for your best Sherlock Holmes skills to help solve this case! With your ticket you’ll get a three-course meal, dessert, and comedic entertainment. The best part is 100 percent of the proceeds will benefit the new school in Vinton, Lighthouse Christian Academy.

“It’s kind of the best kept secret in the Roanoke Valley,” said Barton. “Kids are astounding their parents. They’re learning manners, to read, to write, they’re learning music, they’re learning everything. Parents, in just a short time, are seeing a tremendous difference in their children.”

Just Desserts will put on two shows: Friday, October 14 at 7 p.m. and Saturday, October 15 at 6 p.m. For more information visit: thelighthousebiblechurch.com/
