EagleARTS is bringing back its classic “whodunit” murder mystery game, and you can help in solving the mystery. “Can Cook Won’t Kill” is this year’s theme for Murder on Broadway, an award-winning murder mystery game that takes place on Friday.
Get your tickets and head to the Second Street Tavern where the guests will be “deputized” between 4:45 and 6:15 p.m. From there, guests will visit various businesses in downtown Eagle between 5 and 8 p.m. to hear the suspects’ alibis, ask them questions and find clues.
This is an interactive way to get to know Eagle and the area businesses while having fun during the game. There will be people posing as characters to fill out the plot line, and you can ask questions and see who has a good alibi. Host businesses include ARTSPaCE workshop+gallery, Mountain Lifestyle Properties, Foodsmith, Flower Hound, Hidden Table Games and the Vail Valley Art Guild.
After getting the information, the guests will come back to the Second Street Tavern for the reveal party and will submit their guesses as to who killed Al Fresco, a fictitious character in this foodie-themed murder mystery game. Inspector Rita Cookbook will reveal the “killer” and award prizes for correct guesses. Food will be available and guests will receive one drink ticket with additional beverages available for purchase.
Tickets are available for $55 in advance or $60 at the door. Space is limited, so don’t delay. Guests are encouraged to wear costumes, but nothing resembling a real weapon is allowed. Last year’s theme was Western and the year before the event had a James Bond theme. Murder on Broadway is a fundraiser supporting the EagleARTS programs, including public art installations and ARTSPaCE workshop+gallery. For more information and tickets visit EagleArts.org.
