The Rise and Fall of Miss Fannie’s Biscuits

April 3 – August 2, 2025

Mysteries have a way of following Fannie Miller. When she makes it to the finals of a baking contest and contestants start disappearing, she calls on part-time PI Foster Bates to help investigate. Are her fellow finalists trying to thin out the competition? Like the couple who need the prize money? Or the sisters who are always whispering? Fannie and Foster will stay on the case until the end—and everyone will learn something about baking contests, solving mysteries and life.

A collaboration between best-selling authors Wanda E. Brunstetter and Martha Bolton, this delightful show from Blue Gate Musicals reunites Fannie Miller and Foster Bates, who were introduced in the popular show Stolen. The result is an intriguing musical comedy mystery.

A rigged contest. A missing baker. A determined detective. The right recipe for total disaster!
