Looking for a delicious meal, a great time, and entertainment full of laughs? Join the Sacramento Valley Museum this Saturday, Oct. 29, as they present their fifth annual Murder Mystery Show, Dinner, and Silent Auction.
“We will have local people performing, and the fun part is they don’t have an opportunity to rehearse,” said Teresa Bright, Sacramento Valley Museum board member. “There is significant amount of ad-libbing, and it’s a great way for the actors to interact with other members of the community.”
Held at the Museum Auditorium, 1491 E Street, Williams, doors open at 5 PM, for no host cocktails and good company. The stage will be set in 1959 in Kansas City, Missouri during a backyard cookout and rock n’ roll party. Attendees will challenge their investigative skills and discover the secret behind “A Murder on the Grill.”
“The plot is a car salesman who was murdered with a barbecue fork,” said Bright. “He was known not only for his car salesmanship, but for his barbecue talents.”
Bright added that there are six suspects, and each will give their reasoning of why they couldn’t have committed the heinous crime.
“The suspects include a mechanic, a Russian alternative fuel developer, and Miss Kansas City,” she said. “It’s going to be a fun evening.”
The dinner, provided by Granzella’s, includes a menu of BBQ chicken, boneless short ribs, rebel baked beans, cruisin’ coleslaw, Peggy Sue green beans, cool cat corn on the cob, hound dog garlic bread, and twistn’ apple crisp.
Tickets are $60 per person or $110 per couple, and are available at the Sacramento Valley Museum Thursday, Friday, and Saturday from 10 AM to 4 PM, or by calling (530) 473-2978.
“You can also get them from any museum board member,” said Bright.
While your attendance is necessary, 1950s attire is encouraged. Attendees must be 21 or older to attend.
In addition to the show and dinner, Bright commented there are several live auction items available.
“We had a Treager BBQ donated this year,” said Bright.
Other raffle items include a pumpkin themed basket with a REAL pumpkin pie and a “Fantastic Journey Ride” with the Williams Soaring Center.
