'Til Death Do Us Party Presents:
Murder 1958: Life's A Bitch And Then You Die!

August: 13, 21
Remaining shows canceled

It is 1958 . . . Alaska has just become a state. With America's first successful launching of a satellite, the space race is on! Elvis is drafted into the army. Here at home, Lord Harold Baker of Staffordshire, a prize-winning standard poodle, has vanished - much to the distress of his family. Has he been murdered, kidnapped, or has he disappeared of his own accord? Only some dogged sleuthing can pick up the scent of this blueblood and unleash our murderous tale.

Come join us, high in the Rocky Mountains, at the historic Bluebird Lodge built in 1872 for an evening of mystery and suspense. A limit of thirty guests ensures a very intimate and unusual theatrical experience.

Begin with a champagne reception, surrounded by characters from the past with stories to tell and secrets to divulge (or withhold).

Later, in the dining room, keep your eyes and ears open as you enjoy a meal prepared by the famous Gold Hill Inn. You just may be sitting next to a "killer." You and your team-mates will survey the scene of a crime, look for clues and interrogate suspects. Solve the mystery over dessert and win a prize.

Unwind next door at the Inn, gaze at the stars, or go to bed in the rustic lodge, happy to have survived the evening...

At last the mystery is over, or is it? Was that creaking on the stairs just an old building settling, or was it the ghost of Eugene Field, or some other ethereal denizen of the old mining town? Look if you dare, or pull up the covers a little higher and dream of days long gone, but not forgotten.
