Murder Mystery Dessert Theatre


Murder Mystery Dessert Theatre

The show takes place in the main auditorium. When the audience emerges following the performance they are given a clue sheet and team up (about 4 to a team) to hunt around the theatre to discover the clues. The theatre students remain in character and give additional clues to the ‘detectives’ if asked.

The desserts are set up in the multipurpose room. The room is decorated in the theme of the Mystery. Along with desserts, we set up coffee and lemonade. Additional supplies needed are plates, napkins forks, and cups and drink supplies. Large cakes are cut up and pieces put on plates to make it easier to move people through the line. Every cast member is required to donate at least one dessert but all theatre families are solicited for help with this fun event.

Prizes are given out at the end of the evening Prizes can be donated by parents or purchased if necessary.  

Volunteers are needed to help set up the decorations in the multipurpose room, serve the drinks and desserts during the show, and to help clear up at the end of the evening.
