I completed Number 49 on my list, attend a Murder Mystery Dinner, earlier this month. I have wanted to do this one for a long time, so it feels nice to check it off my list.
As soon as we arrived to the Mystery Train (not actually a train, but we were supposed to pretend it was), we were advised to take aliases.
We were seated among the suspects, which made the experience all the more fun. The cast chose a few people from the audience to have parts. Although we were not chosen, one woman at our table was picked to be Ethel and she was hilarious. Another older man who was assigned the character of Hector kept forgetting to read his lines when it was his turn. It was pretty funny.
One of my favorite parts happened when one of the characters, Gilly, who was pretending to be a waiter (he was actually a hobo on the train) asked my brother for tips on being a waiter.
My brother told him to put one arm behind his back and use his towel to do Wax On Wax Off with his other hand. Gilly continued to do this as he went around to other tables.
After the final act, we wrote down who we thought committed the murder, and why.
Have you ever attended a Murder Mystery Dinner?
