Greg Morton was born in Memphis, Tennessee. He began to play the guitar when he was around 12 years of age. His brother, Randal Morton, began to play the banjo at about the same time. Greg and Randal were headliners at various bluegrass festivals around the country. Greg’s natural musical ability allowed him to quickly develop a mastery of the guitar. While living in Memphis, Greg won the Midsouth Championship in guitar and mandolin. After sharpening his skills playing traditional bluegrass music, Greg began to apply his talents to other musical styles, including country and jazz.

Part Two: In Search of Dillinger’s Ghost
It’s the night of a gala awards dinner at the Hotel Congress, and the who’s who of the town have filled Copper Hall. Suddenly The Ghost Wranglers burst through the door, interrupting the dinner to prove once and for all that there are ghosts in the Hotel Congress. And right in the middle of the chaos… another murder.
Acting troupe Murder Mayhem presents the second act of the murder mystery dinner theater. As a continuation of Part One, which happened in May, In Search of Dillinger’s Ghost takes place at Hotel Congress on Friday, July 20 with an encore performance on Saturday, July 21. Cocktails begin at 6:30pm, with dinner and the show at 7pm.
The evening is full of surprises – including an appearance by John Dillinger’s ghost who feels compelled to help solve the mystery in order to prevent any more murders from happening.
The audience will take part in the investigation by looking for clues – a prize will be given to the audience member who correctly guesses the murderer.
The evening will be enhanced with a three-course menu by the chefs at Cup Café:
Roasted Tomato Gazpacho, Cilantro & Goat Cheese

The second play in Jem Street’s trilogy on American manners and mores, “Hope” tells the story of Joe Chandler, a successful businessman who is being courted to run for the House of Representatives. In one difficult night in a Tennessee hotel room, Joe must determine whether his history, his mistakes and his regrets are political liabilities. With an infamously racist father, a brief affair, a problematic business record, and of course he “inhaled,” Joe must ask himself the irony-tinged question: am I a good enough person to be a politician?
This is a full-length play and the performance dates are Friday and Saturday July 20th, 21st, 27th, and 28th at 7:30 PM and Sunday July 22nd at 2:30 PM.
Tickets are available online, over the phone or at the door. Reservations and purchases can be made at 520-885-0555.
