'Til Death Do Us Part
A Murder Mystery Dinner
Friday, March 13, 2015
6 pm at Deyo Hall
Join us on Friday, March 13, for a fundraiser, “’Til Death Do Us Part,” a Murder Mystery dinner event. Guests will be transported back in time to 1928 to attend the wedding reception of two famous silent film stars.
Guests will have a unique opportunity to engage in local history in the context of one of America’s defining eras – the roaring twenties – and rub elbows with glamorous silent film and “talkie” stars, including newlyweds Evie and Eddie. Also in attendance will be notable artists, jazz singers, flappers, bootleggers, and other famous personalities of the time. Characters in period attire will engage guests in relevant conversation on hot topics of the 20s like the film industry and advent of the studio system, prohibition, and even the 1927 New York Yankees.
A period-appropriate dinner will be prepared by the popular Blue Crane Inn, a “cornerstone of nightlife in New Paltz,” founded in 1900 and now known as P&G’s. Wine and period cocktails will be provided by Stone Ridge Wine and Spirits. A live jazz performance will accompany dinner.
Unfortunately, Evie and Eddie’s marital bliss is cut short. After dinner, guests will proceed to the historic Deyo House to solve a shocking murder mystery.
Space is limited for this unique evening. Reservations are required and will be filled on a first-come, first-served basis. Period dress is optional, but encouraged.
Limited VIP tickets are also available. The VIP experience includes seating at the Sweetheart Table with Evie and Eddie, access to an exclusive bonus scene, and the opportunity to play a period character.
