Murder-mystery dinner theater
The Comical Mystery Tour ensemble invites the public to join the fun with its program, "Quiet, You're Dead!", a murder-mystery dinner theater performance on Sunday. Doors open at 5 p.m. Program starts and first course served at 5:30 p.m.
Join an autograph dinner in honor of J.J. Rolling, author of the novel series "Henrietta Porters and the Witches' School of Flying Housewares." J.J. is toasted at his hometown Amanda Huggankiz Library by Dewey Decibel, Conan Del Libre or Conan the Librarian, Ms. Brooke Snooty and Harriett Potterson. Have they assembled to shower J.J. with praise or do they have other deadly reasons for seeing him?
Cost to attend is $40 per person including a full course dinner. A cash bar is available for beer and wine. Reservations are required by Monday, Jan. 15th. Seating is limited. For information or reservations call Ventfort Hall at 413-637-3206. The historical mansion is located at 104 Walker Street in Lenox.
