Socializing 6pm, BYOB and appetizer. 7 pm the Murder Mystery Party. Cost $15.00 Pay at the door day of the event, cash or check DBC.
The Dunedin Boat Club will have a costumed pirate theme murder mystery event on Saturday, March 18. You need to move quickly to make this fun event possible. Due to the unique nature of this event, people must rsvp in advance. You cannot just show up at the door. The deadline for signing up for the event is March 10 and if we don’t get at least 30 people signed up by that date, the event will have to be cancelled.
This is not dinner theater that many people have experienced. This is completely different – it is a mixing, mingling social event where ALL of the guests ALL play characters. This is a socializing bring a dish party, not an event where you sit and watch actors do a skit. There is no audience, no lines to recite and nothing to memorize. We will tell you the history of your character several days in advance, but how you choose to play it at the event is totally up to you. It is just like when we were kids in the sandbox pretending to be ballerinas or cowboys – you make it up as you go along. For more information on how it works, go to www.mysterymixers.com
A list of 50 characters has been posted on the Dunedin Boat Club website. Please contact me and let me know which character you want to play. Please be ready with a first and second choice. We will need your name, email address and phone number so we can get you the character information in advance. Characters are assigned on a first come, first served basis. The sooner you sign up, the more choices you will have of which character to play.
This is a pirate theme but there are also a few native characters from the tropical paradise of Happy Island. If you choose one of these parts, you would dress like if you were going to participate in a Hawaiian luau.
The cost of the event is $15. If you are not certain you can make it, please do not sign up for a major character. Let us know immediately if you need to cancel because we may need to replace your character.
This is a party for the people who have said they want to do “something different.” Please help us out by signing up immediately.
