Ohio Valley Cloak and Dagger Company presents ‘The Final Rose’

WINTERSVILLE — Fun, food and murder are coming Friday to Zalenski’s Eatery and Pub.

That’s when the Ohio Valley Cloak and Dagger Company will present “The Final Rose,” an interactive mystery featuring intrigue and laughs.

It’s the Season 20 finale of the hit matchmaking reality show “His Chosen Soulmate” in which the handsome, irresistible Bachelor McDreamy, Wesley DeMarist (son of 2020 presidential candidate Sen. Cynthia DeMarist), will select the woman of his scripted dreams.

However, minutes before the live broadcast begins, Wesley is found dead in his dressing room, turning the finale into a whodunit wilder than anything the producers could have imagined.

Starring the Wayward Saints and featuring an original script written and directed by Pete Fernbaugh, doors will open at 5:15 p.m. The entertainment will begin at 6 p.m. with a pre-show performance by R.J. Gaudio, troubadour.

“Our interactive mysteries are definitely tongue-in-cheek, but they’re also heavy on the melodrama, with plenty of histrionics and hellacious misdeeds to engage and entertain our audiences,” Fernbaugh said. “If you’re looking for something different to do on Valentine’s Day, this is the event for you. And the food will be delicious.”

Tickets are $50 per person and cover the show and a three-course dinner. Reservations can be made by calling Zalenski’s, which is located at 547 Canton Road, at (740) 264-2144.
