What’s dinner without a little murder?
Check out Longview Stageworks’ Killer Fundraiser!
Join Stageworks for a dinner to die for, deadly desserts, and a little murder. This hilarious show puts you on the invitation list to attend the "Hearthrob Books Romance Writer's Convention" where competition is fierce for the coveted "Loveknot Award." So fierce, that someone is willing to kill for it!
Among the nominated authors are two spinster sisters, a young prodigy and her overbearing mother, an obnoxious social climber, a tough guy, and a British aristocrat. Editor Benton Fish tries gamely to keep the award ceremonies civilized amid jealousies and rivalries. When passions turn to murder, it will be up to the amateur detectives in the audience to solve the crime and vote for who they think "dunit".

Singer-songwriter-guitarist Sean Weaver’s earliest memories are of climbing up on a countertop to reach the radio. Since then he has traversed many musical pathways ranging from electric blues to the major guitar figures of the 1960’s rock-era, to earlier Chet Atkins solo pieces, pre-war American blues and folk music, with poetic and lyrical inspirations including Robert Frost, Leonard Cohen, and the legendary 1970’s Texas singer-songwriter circuit. Based out of Nashville, TN where he performs, teaches, and writes, Sean is as likely to bring his expertise to a recording session for a commercial jingle as he is to a local club at the request of any number of talented individuals who call for his attention to tone, finesse, and crafting melodic parts. After moving to Nashville in August of 2000, recommendations and recognition soon ensued by Richard Bennett (session veteran of 40+ years, record producer, and longtime guitarist with Mark Knopfler of Dire Straits), Ray Flacke (Ricky Skaggs, Marty Stuart, and more), and noted guitarist, instructor, and personal transcriptionist to Chet Atkins, John Knowles CGP – all lending encouragement and testimonials (available at www.seanweaver.com). As a prolific composer and writer, Sean is also a fearless solo performer who has fallen under the guidance and mentorship of masters of their craft such as noted contemporary folksinger-songwriter Bob Franke, guitarist/composer Laurence Juber (of Paul McCartney and Wings renown), and 20-time Grammy winner Vince Gill. Sessions for his first solo album are due to commence this winter. An evening with Sean Weaver is a unique experience, frequently including more than a few guitar showcases, nods to Chet Atkins and the lifelong influence of his childhood country-blues guitar teacher John Miller of Seattle (“he got me to take the leap from Stevie Ray Vaughan, great as he was, to Mississippi John Hurt,” he says from his home in Nashville), original songs, traditional folk-blues tunes, and interpretations of luminaries including Woody Guthrie and Nebraksa/Tom Joad era Springsteen…with a heavy dose of troubadours Guy Clark and Townes Van Zandt thrown in for good measure. Sean’s own material strikes a balance between the personal and the imaginary, with a penchant for character studies exposing the heights and depths of the human condition; as if Richard Thompson met up with early Dylan and, on a good night, Jimi Hendrix too. Not surprisingly, like his longtime inspiration Thompson, Sean has one foot firmly planted in the acoustic world and the other in a wave of electric guitars and amplifiers on ten (“folk music drew me in,” he continues, “but I still haven’t gotten over rock and roll”). All of whom he frequently speaks of, while creating a vibrant sound and mix that’s all his own and singular in its presentation. The recipient of numerous awards and honors by the Home of the Legends Thumbpickers Association and the Jimi Hendrix Electric Guitar Competition among others, Sean has performed on stages across the country including the historic Ryman Auditorium, Bluebird Café, Iridium Jazz Club in NYC, and Washington Center for the Performing Arts with friends, mentors, and inspirations including Tommy Emmanuel CGP, Vince Gill, the late great Les Paul, Boots Randolph, and Richard Smith.
