The Murder Mystery Dinner was a very successful and fun event set up for family day, and it was a sold out event with 150 people in attendance. The event was hosted in the Alumni Lounge from 6:00 -7:30 p.m. All of the guests pledged to be deputy detectives to find out who murdered the famous producer, Mr. Willy Wonder.
The game was a Chester Hadlyme Mystery and just one of the many plots available. This plot, however, was called “Auditions are Murder” and the famous producer conducting the auditions turned up to be the one murdered. The characters who were auditioning are, of course, the three suspects. There was Gary Glamour, who was a famous star in the 80’s; everyone knows that he will not get his part because of his bad acting. Then, there was Lee Montressore, who is an internationally known actress/model and does not need audition for the audience because Mr. Wonder said that she auditioned enough the night previously. Finally, there is Tapioca Puddingworth, who is Mr. Wonder’s current girlfriend and is insanely possessive of him. It is not expected for their relationship to last.
The plot thickens when the audience finds out that Mr. Willy Wonder, not only has appeared to have dropped dead, but that his cause of death was actually cyanide poisoning. As new clues and rumors begin to circulate through the room, it becomes obvious that Gary might have an ulterior motive for Mr. Wonder death; his friend, also a producer, wants to take over Mr. Wonder’s production company and has promised Gary a role for his help. However, Tapioca might also have a motive to inflict harm on Mr. Wonder, because one of the rumors going around was that Lee was seen leaving the Motel 7 earlier that morning, the one where Mr. Wonder was staying. This ,of course, caused Tapioca to just lost it. Gary claimed she was emotionally unstable; this newly revealed information must have pushed her over the edge.
The dinner was very good too. They served chicken piccata, poppy seed rolls, potato wedges, salad, cookies, and brownies, all of which was very delicious. Gary especially loved the rolls. The table decorations were also very nice, with curled ribbon in the middle and programs and pencils circling the center.
This was a very nice event put on, and everyone there enjoyed themselves, especially since the characters were very entertaining. The winner of the mystery received her own game to play at home, another murder mystery game signed by all of the actors. A thank you goes out to everyone who made this fun night possible.Tweet
