Murder Mysteries

September | 24


Looking to have a FUN and exciting NEW way to NETWORK and meet members within CLLA?

The Western Region Executive Council is hosting 2 Murder Mystery Games, Terror in Tinseltown and Groomed for Murder.

Registration is required and you must be committed to participate when registering. You will choose your preference of mystery game on the registration form. There is no guarantee which game you will be assigned but will try to accommodate your preference. Assignments will depend on the number of members registered for the games and priority will be provided to those requests received in the order of registrations. You will be assigned a character, suggested props and perhaps a costume (waist up only).

Your assignment will be provided to you one to two weeks prior to the meeting. If more than 40 members sign up to participate, a wait list (understudy list) will be created. If your plans change, please notify Dawn Federico no later than August 24 to allow to rearrange the Murder Mystery.

Option 1
Terror in Tinseltown

It is 1928 and the birth of the talking picture has turned Hollywood on its ear. That is until famed silent movie star Sly Mandrake turns up dead on the set of this latest picture The Singing Sheik. What seems to be a tragic accident now looks more and more like a Hollywood hit job. Who could have bumped off this heartthrob of the silver screen? Could it have been controlling director Burly Bellows, frustrated with Mandrake’s lack of elocution? Or was it his vengeful scene-stealing partner, emerging starlet Nettie Pots? Was it a famous LA mobster Hoochie Coodilinni, or could it have been Mandrake’s scorned lover Zelda Pinchbottom? Pour yourself a glass of giggle water and do the Bunny Hug in this legendary Jazz Age whodunit, Terror in Tinseltown.

Option 2
Groomed for Murder

The moment has arrived—the thousands of entrants at the prestigious Eastmunster Kennel Dog Show have been narrowed down to seven lucky canines. They and their handlers are nervously waiting for the Head Judge to arrive and determine which dog is the “Best in Show.” The Announcer introduces the Judge, she does not appear. The Announcer tries again. Silence. Suddenly, a minor official runs screaming into the ring. “Dead! She’s dead! Someone has killed Ada Glover!” In the ensuing chaos, the crowd is left to wonder whodunit. Was it one of the finalists, scared of how the Judge assessed their precious pooch? Was it someone who was passed over for a place in the finals? Was it one of the dog fanciers in the audience? Or was it—YOU?

That was so much fun! Everybody was laughing. It was a perfect way to end the day.

The murder mystery game is very interactive and lots of fun. Because you have a script to use, it tends to bring those who are otherwise quiet drawn into the game. Great networking opportunity to get to know other CLLA members.
