OLIVE HILL, Ky. – Carter Caves State Resort Park will host a dinner theater based on “Spooky Dog & the Teen-Age Gang Mysteries,” Nov. 7-8.


This play is an irreverent parody of Saturday morning cartoons.  Missing from a starring performance at a creepy county fair, a pop culture icon (suggested by the audience) can only be located by this familiar gang of teen sleuths and a talking dog. On a comical quest to find their missing friend, they'll face the ghost of a dead country singer, a not-so-psychic fortune teller, and the sinister couple who run the fairground – and that's not all.  You'll never see Saturday morning the same way again! 


“Spooky Dog & the Teen-Age Gang Mysteries!” will be performed by Fantastical Theatricals.


The cost for the dinner and show is $34.95 (plus tax) per person and $24.95 per child 12 years  and under.  The park is offering a package that includes dinner, show and an overnight stay in Lewis Caveland Lodge for just $131.95 (plus tax) for two people.


Seating starts at 6:45 p.m. for each performance. Call 1-800-325-0059 for reservations and information.
