The Walk In Art Center will be transformed into the Dunnem Inn on Oct. 13 and 14 for “Halloween Hotel Horror,” an interactive murder mystery dinner theatre show, The night includes food, a cash bar and loads of interactive fun as guests “Inn” try to solve a murder.
Guests are invited to a Transylvanian hotel where the staff is prepared to give them quite a show. But when a real murder occurs, they are thrown into a tizzy and need the guests to help figure it out.
Those attending are encouraged to dress in Halloween costumes to add to the fun.
Ana O’Reilly of Schuylkill Haven plays Helen Bach, the owner of Dunnem Inn and facilitator of the evening. She works closely with her snobbish restaurant manager, Ivan Appetite, played by Mahanoy City’s Adam Randis. Tour Guide Shona Round, is played by Danielle Spadafora of Auburn, and her daughter Carrie DeWay is played by Pottsville’s Ava Fischer. Tristan Cassel, also of Auburn, plays the coach driver Igor Beaver.
Guests have opportunities throughout the evening to get to know the characters and ask them questions.
“This is the third murder mystery dinner theatre we have produced here at the Walk In,” director Jacquie Engel said. “They have really grown in popularity over the past year and a half, and we are trying to offer two new murder-mystery events a year. We are looking to have an Irish Pub-themed event in March!”
Tickets are $40 and include a buffet with three entrée choices, sides, salad, dessert and nonalcoholic beverages. There will be a cash bar for beer and wine sales. Visit walkinartcenter.org and click event registration to purchase tickets. There will not be tickets for sale at the door.
