Cast & Crew

Our cast (the PT Mystery Players) is a group of young and more mature amateur actors who donate all their time and talent to the cause and we are deeply grateful for them. We promise you an evening of fun, laughter, and fine dining!

jan-boutilier Jan Boutilier

If you or your child spent a lot of time in the office in high school, you probably know Jan. She has been an important part of Dinner and a Murder since its inception, and has been in the show every year. She was also a regular in shows put on by the O’Meara Dance Studio. Jan claims that she used to be shy, but we don’t believe her.

  John Clise

If you live in Port Townsend, you probably know John, who used to own Aldrich’s and has served as mayor. He has been active with the Key City Public Theatre, even playing God at one point. We can’t compete with that, but John seems to enjoy our shows as he keeps coming back.

David Crozier

Any thought that David might only be on stage because his wife is forcing him to do it will vanish as soon as he begins to speak. David has been with us from the beginning. He helped Ramon write the script for a couple of past shows, so he gets part of the blame for these messes.  If it wasn’t for David, Ramon still wouldn’t know what a shillelagh was.

Mary Crozier

Mary has been crucial to the show from the very beginning. I’ve never seen anyone pull a costume together as quickly and thoroughly as she does. Mary was also a regular with the O’Meara Dance Studio, where she had 4 or 5 costumes instead of just the one we ask for.

Ramon Dailey (Author & Director)

Ramon has been writing and directing our murder mysteries since 2006. He’s the main reason we “act” this way. And, he’s brilliant. No. Really. He directed us to say that.


Tiela Dailey

Wife of our director (sorry, Tiela), Tiela is one of our Muses. She has been with us almost from the beginning and was gracious enough to even let Ramon make their wedding into a Murder Mystery! Glad they’re not planning on any more kids. I don’t think the audience could handle it!


 marie-beebe  Marie Beebe Farmer

This is Marie’s 5th time on stage with us and comes from a long line of entertainers.  She is having a blast and so enjoys working with her great cast and crew members who are all wonderful and so supportive of each other.   She’s also very excited about the plot twist to this year’s show!

  Jim Guthrie

Jim brings a lot more than his acting chops to the stage – he actually brings the stage. Jim and his students have built our sets the last couple of years, which has increased our production value exponentially. He is also an ordained minister and performed Ramon and Tiela’s wedding ceremony in the 2010 mystery.

Jason Hollingsworth

Jason’s first role with Dinner & a Murder was in the beginning in 2006, where he played “Blacksmith Flint Flames”. In 2007, he became “Sid Lorre” – Big Daddy’s bodyguard.   2008 found him as Raymond Cooke, a-bit-spoiled mommy’s boy. And in 2009 he made a very convincible Cardorian as Master Sil’Indah.

Sheryl Klock – Stage Manager & Co-Director

Sheryl has been assisting Ramon and managing the stage since 2010. She’s the only one who really knows our lines. We keep trying to turn her into a “character”, but she says she already is one.

  Peggy Tonan

If there’s anyone on our stage who loves an audience more than I do, it’s Peggy. They love her in return. She joined us the second year and, never one to waste time, Peggy was guilty of murder that year. Who knows? Maybe she’ll strike again…
