MIDLAND – An upcoming dinner at the Huronia Museum will provide guests a chance to solve an original murder mystery written by Midland playwright Brendan Main.
The Oct. 15 fundraiser will see guests enjoying several courses while they wander around puzzling out the solution to the murder. Local actors portraying dinner guests will mingle with the crowd and drop clues.
“The museum is a fantastic location, and we wrote the mystery with it in mind,” Main stated in a press release. “This isn’t like dinner theatre, where people sit down and see a show. Instead, the mystery plays out through the evening all around them.”
Museum director Nahanni Born acknowledged the event is “a bit unconventional.”
“Actors will be performing scenes simultaneously in multiple rooms, which means our guests will have to fill in the blanks and make their best guess with the information they have,” she said. “It’s definitely a different approach to theatre, but we think that attendees will love being active participants in the production.”
“Murder Mystery at the Museum” will begin at 7 p.m. Tickets are $50 each and include food by ELM Catering, dessert and the show. A cash bar will be available.
