Murder Mystery Weekend

For more than 15 years, mysterious characters rendezvous in South Sterling where for three days and two nights, murder, mystery and mayhem seem to prevail. The cast of characters are guests who join us for a Murder Mystery Weekend, each designed around a theme or event or time period in history. We’ve entertained mobsters and molls from the ’50s, flower children and hippies at Woodstock.

As an extra added event tonight alumni Buddy Lee Lewis has agreed to perform. Ticket sales for tonight’s event have been through the roof. We also wish to thank our benefactors Mr. and Mrs. Arthur Crumbling for their generous donation. Here’s hoping this fundraiser is a killer.

Out Of This World Murder Mystery

The year is 2170. Many great advancements and achievements have been recorded in the past 150 years. Humanity has colonized the Moon and Mars; the governments of the world have finally realized peaceful coexistence; and Earth is now preparing to join a galactic alliance made up of hundreds of planets throughout the Milky Way. Trouble is brewing on the eve of the treaty ceremony though. Some alien delegations question Earth’s worthiness to join their galactic club, even though our blue and green marble has much to offer (particularly the precious water that is lacking on many of the inhabited dry rocks out there). Do our soon-to-be alien friends have Earth’s best interests at heart? What will happen when humanity’s best and worst come face-to-face with aliens, androids, robots and the rest of the galactic population? Is someone willing to kill or be killed to save the alliance…or destroy it? You’ll find out when you land at Huckleberry Base on the Moon for an “Out of This World Murder Mystery!”
