aka Detective Jericho West
Jerry Winsett has been acting professionally for over a quarter of a century, having performed in literally hundreds of productions on television, stage and the silver screen.
Jerry has appeared on TV in numerous Guest-Starring roles on such shows as “Newhart,” “Coach,” “Garry Shandling Show” and others. He starred in the recurring role of Mayor Lloyd Lloyd in the Nickelodeon series, “The Snooker Report.” He has done MANY, MANY commercials, and costarred in the very first “Time To Make The Donuts” commercial for Dunkin Donuts and the Federal Express “Big Package” ad campaign.
He has countless stage credits and won awards locally in Wilmington for his performance as 'Nicely Nicely' in "Guys and Dolls" and 'Pap Finn' in “Big River”. He has played everyone from Charlie Brown to Ben Franklin. He is a singer, writer, director and an admitted ham. In a review of our Murder Mystery show, The Wilmington Star News called Jerry "extraordinary." (See our reviews section for more reviews of MMP performances.) He makes yearly guest artist appearances at the Tennessee Shakespeare Festival and even has a recipe (Chicken and Dumplin’s) in the “Celebrities of Tennessee Cookbook”.
Jerry is a member of Screen Actors Guild-American Federation of Television and Radio Artists and has been featured in dozens of films including the cult favorite “One Crazy Summer” and locally filmed “Bastard Out Of Carolina.” He recently finished a role as a member of the “Secret Seven” in the independent production “The Red Cape” based on the Wilmington, NC race riots of 1898. You can catch him on cable TV most any month as the surly farmer caught between two motorcycle gangs in Warner Brothers feature “Torque” from the same production team that brought you “Fast and Furious” and “XXX” and starring Ice Cube. Look for Jerry in the upcoming films "Bolden" based on jazz legend Charles "Buddy" Bolden; and "The Red Cape", a film looking at the 1898 race riots in Wilmington, NC.
Jerry has been a repeat guest at Dragon*Con for his voice-over work in Anime. And he is also an accomplished Singer and Songwriter and is listed in “Who’s Who in American Entertainment”.
On TV he recently appeared in the CBS series "The Inspectors" and on the Big Screen he won a Screen Actors Guild Award for his role opposite Frances McDormand in "Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri". Look for him soon in the feature films "Finding Steve McQueen", "Drought" and the short "Long Drive To Yadkin"!

aka Hostess with the Mostess
In August of 2002 I had the pleasure of being a guest at House of Blues to attend my very first Murder Mystery Productions dinner show. I enjoyed the show so much and made sure that I interacted with "Detective West" and the cast as much as possible that other guests actually thought I was involved. When the show was over, I introduced myself to Jerry and said " if you ever need an extra, please give me a call".
Imagine my surprise when he called me that very night and invited me to audition as a "hit" person for the following weekend in an actual show. I passed the audition with dying, er, flying colors. And after that first role, I WAS HOOKED! I knew I wanted to always be a part of Murder Mystery Productions!
Since that evening, I have been killed in every way imaginable. Over the years, I have played many characters - I have been homeless, rich, a jealous wife, a thief, an innocent pawn, an overprotective stage mom, pregnant and even "undead" in our productions. I also have shot, poisoned, stabbed and even choked others along my journey to arrive where I am now with the company, as Hostess, Director and Production Manager.
I look forward to welcoming you to one of our events, but don't let my southern charm fool you; I may not be as "innocent" as I appear. Remember, as I say at the start of every mystery, "You can't trust anyone!" ;-)

As for the rest of our cast...
Well, to tell you who they all are would give away the element of surprise when you attend the Murder Mystery, but our talented acting troupe includes a hodge-podge of assorted gangsters, innocents, psychos, hitmen, bimbos, socialites, snitches and other characters played by actors who have appeared in countless stage productions and in television and movies in productions including Hill Street Blues, Virus, LA Law, General Hospital, The Red Cape, Dawson's Creek, Babylon 5, Days Of Our Lives, Surface, Matlock and Homeland.
