Murder Mysteries are More Fun for a Weekend Getaway!

Friday Night

On Friday evening after you check in, you will meet some of the characters in the murder mystery. The bar is open and the hor d'ouvers are complimentary. We want to see you there at 7:30 promptly. If you are later than 8 p.m., you may miss out on some vital information - and at least a couple of drinks.

Now, don’t worry about the whole murder thing. We seldom lose a guest. And we won’t even try to fool you as to who’s an actor and who’s not. During the informal mingle, you'll meet most of the characters one-on-one. And, oh yes, you may be asked to play a part in the performance.

Around 8 o'clock the show begins. Featuring broad comedy and musical parody, a mystery unfolds. You should be attentive to the characters’ motivations, actions and words, even the hand props. you’ll know who was murdered by the end of the evening, and you’ll already have a theory.


Saturday you will go out and look for clues. You will have instructions in your welcome pack telling you where to find these clues. There may be as many as six different clues.

Saturday Night
