The Storyline
We are celebrating a totally radical decade of music with a newly formed 80s tribute band. But when the lead singer is introduced, everyone will be, like, gag me with a spoon! She’s dead! Who killed her? It will be up to the beautiful and bodacious guests to figure it out. The murder mystery is a comedy. At no time will guests be frightened or confused.
Participation Encouraged This event is an interactive murder mystery game. As a guest, you will be asked to participate in the mystery as a sleuth, search for clues, interrogate suspects and try to solve whodunnit.
Refunds No refunds within a week of the event. Should an illness or emergency prevent you from attending, you may give your seat to a friend or family member. Be sure to let them know which entree you’ve selected.
