Murder at the Deadwood Saloon
Family Promise is hosting a murder mystery to raise funds for the shelter program. This is an event you won’t want to miss. No acting is required and there are no LINES to memorize. Guests simple interact with each other by asking questions and completing small objectives throughout the evening. Western costumes are not required but will certainly add to the theme and the fun.
- There are NO LINES to memorize.
- Each guest opens an envelope with 3 easy objectives. For example:
- Talk to “ABC” person and tell them “X”
- Find the “sheriff” and tell him/her “X”
- When all guests start interacting by following their 3 objectives: the murder will unfold. You’ll be collecting clues by talking to characters.
- At the end guests will try to guess the identity of the murderer.
- Various prizes will be awarded.
