Murder Mystery returns to Flagstaff for an upcoming dinner event and fundraiser for Theatrikos Theater Company and Canyon Moon Theatre.
“The Call of the Weatherford,” is set for Saturday, May 20 at 6:00 p.m. at Charly’s Pub in the Weatherford Hotel, one of Flagstaff’s most iconic, historic hotels.
The murder mystery dinner will be dramatic and funny, and diners are encouraged to join the actors in solving the crime. The plot centers around Babbitt Riordan’s special party for author Zane Grey in celebration of his newly completed novel “The Call of the Canyon.” Flagstaff’s finest have come together to socialize with the famed writer, but the fun has hardly started when someone drops dead. Detective Richard Dick comes to the rescue.
The improv and theater hybrid was written by Mary Guaraldi of Canyon Moon, who has successfully staged two other murder mystery dinners at the Weatherford.
Tickets for this unique theatrical experience are $50 per person and it includes a four-course dinner and the two-hour show. Alcohol, taxes and tips are not included, and guests are strongly encouraged to attend in Roaring Twenties attire.
