Grab some friends (ages 18+) or plan a date night ~ join us for a HALLOWEEN COSTUME PARTY, filled with SUSPENSE and COMEDY!!
“A THIRST FOR MURDER”
The Treehouse Theater Studio in Manitowoc, W,I will host another one of our popular, fun-filled INTERACTIVE Murder Mystery Dinners — FRIDAY or SATURDAY NIGHT, October 19 or 20, 2018. Doors will open at 5:30 pm each night and event will run 4+ hours.
Join us as guests (optionally dressed in costume) who are gathered for the annual Halloween Costume Party in Devil’s Gulch. This normally festive gathering has an eerie overtone, however, as folks are still reeling from the tragic events of exactly one year ago.
Last October 31, a fire broke out in the Bates Mansion, situated next to the historical cemetery at the edge of town. Witnesses say they saw the mansion spontaneously combust into a ball of fire and, as it burned, they saw distraught ghost-like beings fly out of every window, wailing in terror. The mansion’s owner, Gilbert Bates and two others were killed, burned beyond recognition. Only Lester Danvers managed to escape the fire, though he suffered severe smoke inhalation and stress-related amnesia.
The Bates mansion still lays in ruin as an eerie reminder of the curse that now seems to hover over this quaint small town. Soon the property will be up for auction and despite its dark and tragic history, there are some who want to buy it and will do whatever they can to get it.
Someone will lose their life tonight, so guests will work together to determine which of our EIGHT SUSPECTS is responsible:
GRACE PEABODY – reclusive and eccentric psychic
played by Claran LaViolette
LESTER DANIELS – sole survivor of last year’s fire
played by John Iannitello
LUCY MOORE – journalist for local newspaper
played by Margaret Iannitello
WILLIAM PARKER – wealthiest “bad boy” in town
played by Pete Schoepp
GEORGE BURTON – Mayor of Devil’s Gulch
played by Marty Schaller
HELENA BURTON – Mayor’s overbearing wife
played by Roz Vossen
INGRID BATES – Gilbert Bates’ long-lost Aunt
played by Lisa Heili
DR LUDWIG VON HERRING – Investigator of the unusual
played by Jonathan Medendorp
Circular tables, each with 8 guests, will be in one large room so that all guests can observe and participate in the evening’s activities. Watch/participate in the scenes, question our suspects, brainstorm your theories, and eventually, submit your table’s best “whodunit” guess for the entire group!
