The Centralia Cultural Society and veteran producer Rob Jackson are at it again with their current production of “Last Call at Chez Mort.”
Summing it up after sitting through a rehearsal, it’s everything rolled up in one that assures an entertaining evening. It’s hilarious, amusing, unusual, and will totally keep you waiting for the next punch line, keeping the audience laughing.

This comedy murder mystery has a cast of eight extremely talented people, all local, with Director Rob Jackson, who has a long history of successful productions.

In addition to this fabulous comedy which begins at 8 p.m. each evening, you can make dinner reservations to start at 6:30, courtesy of the Centralia House, on March 8 and 9. The show is only $10.00. With dinner included, the ticket price is $22.00 each or $40.00 per couple, tables of 8. Cash bar, beer and wine as well as champagne — in keeping with the 1940s theme — is also available, but you need to make reservations for dinner.
“Last Call at Chez Mort” stars are: Cherokee Ray (Inspector Eddie Constantine), Todd Schultze (Smitty), Jonathan Reynolds (Jean Paul Truffaut), Douglas Dunahee (Mack), Danny Miller (Lady Lelu), Steve Miller (Big Suit Stu), Jim Bahr (Bodyguard), Lexie Schultze (Sweet Sue); Elijah Buerh (pianist).

Tickets for the remaining performers are available at the Centralia Cultural Society.
