LSUS Foundation announces the 2015 RiverBend Mystery Dinner Theater honoring Chancellor Larry Clark as Pilot of the Year

August 24, 2015

Shreveport, Louisiana – The LSUS Foundation is using a unique approach to raise funds for LSU Shreveport while also recognizing the significant achievements of new Chancellor Larry Clark.

“Chancellor Larry Clark has done an amazing job in his one short year at LSU Shreveport, and we wanted to recognize that with the award of Pilot of the Year,” said Harold Turner, Foundation Board President. The LSUS Foundation is raising funds for LSUS scholarships and programs with The RiverBend Mystery Dinner Theater, a fundraiser performed by the Dallas Murder Mystery Company with a script catered to our Shreveport “characters.” On October 8, starting at 6PM, the Horseshoe RiverDome will become a crime scene in desperate need of investigation.

The Dallas Murder Mystery Company has performed for a number of celebrities including the Queen of Mystery, Mary Higgins Clark herself. The ability to add Shreveport characters made the event even more appealing. “We wanted to host something really special this year, something new while at the same time continue with the tradition of honoring a true LSUS supporter with the Pilot of the Year Award,” said Laura Perdue, Foundation Executive Director. The LSUS Alumni Association will also host a silent auction.

Chancellor Larry Clark completed his first year on July 1 after steering LSU Shreveport through one of the most difficult years for Louisiana higher education. Under his leadership the university ended the year with a balanced budget, increased enrollment and earned distinct honors in accreditation. “It will be a fun night of comedy peppered with murder and mayhem, but, most of all, a celebration of Clark’s incredible accomplishments that are too many to mention here,” said Perdue.

All tickets include the performance, seated dinner and bar. The VIP Date Night Package at $500 admits two for VIP seating and one corsage. Individual tickets are $125, and there are still some opportunities for table sponsorship. Each table allows for eight guests.  Tickets are on sale now by visiting or by calling 797-5257.
