Members of the Opelika Theatre Company will take audiences back to the Roaring Twenties with a Valentine’s Day show titled “Haunting of the Southside Speakeasy.”
According to a description listed on the event flyer, the audience will “encounter the paranormal revisiting of an unsolved crime” during the show and be tasked with discovering the truth of what happened, all the while enjoying “laughs, good food and good fun.”
Because of the show’s theme, guests and couples attending are encouraged to wear 20s-themed costumes. Prizes will be awarded to those best dressed.
Backwater BBQ of Salem will be catering food for the show. The current menu includes roast beef au jus or orange-glazed chicken breast as entrees; baked potato, mixed vegetables, garden salad and dinner roll will serve as sides, two desserts and alternative dish options for vegetarians.
Reservations are required to attend this event and can be made by ordering tickets at or by calling OTC Artistic Director Marty Moore at 334-663-2593. Couples who register before Feb. 9 will receive the “early-bird” price of $95. After Feb. 9, the cost will be $100 for couples and $50 for single tickets.
