Grab some friends and join us for a HALLOWEEN COSTUME PARTY, filled with SUSPENSE and COMEDY!!

The Treehouse Theater Studio will host another one of our popular, fun-filled INTERACTIVE Murder Mystery Dinners -- FRIDAY or SATURDAY NIGHT, October 27 or 28, 2017. Doors will open at 5:45 pm each night and event will run 3+ hours.

The theater at The Mystic Inn, shortly after our own Mystic Lake native, "The Great Radinski." performed an evening of incredible illusions that defied explanation. Audience members (optionally dressed for the costume party) are still in the theater, shocked to have learned that the magician was found dead on a nearby beach! 

Born in Poland as Igor Radinski, the world-renowed magician had emigrated with his parents to Mystic Lake and was said to have had psychic powers. His fame was assured a decade ago when, live on a BBC broadcast, he made London's Tower Bridge and St. Paul Cathedral disappear and then reappear 10 minutes later. Still, considered by many to be the greatest illusion ever performed, yet it has been rumored that Radinski stole the trick from another magician. Those allegations have never been proven.

The Great Radinski had returned to Mystic Lake about a week ago, following a triumphant tour of Asia and Europe. Prior to the planned ending of tonight's show, however, the Great Radinski disappeared from the stage in a cloud of smoke. Fifteen minutes later, puzzled guests heard a muffled explosion. Police then entered to announce that Radinski was found dead on the nearby beach and confirmed that their evidence points toward a homicide, committed by one of our SEVEN SUSPECTS: 

GRETEL AUERHAHN (German clock maker, in costume tonight as a cuckoo)

BERTRAM "BUDGIE" BENSON (showman and Radinski's agent, costumed as the emir of Qatar)

JENNY FEATHERSTONE (Radinski's on-stage assistant)

GWENDOLYN JONES (Welch breeder of exotic stage animals, costumed as a queen)

ROGER QUIGLEY (Australian barterer and trader, costumed as a pirate)

IVAN RADINSKI (first cousin of deceased and cell phone industry entrepreneur, costumed as a polar Admiral) 

BARONESS von HOFBURG SCHLOSSBRUNN (Hungarian noblewoman thru marriage, costumed as Madame Butterfly)

Join the guests who are gathered in search of the truth behind The Great Radinski's demise. Circular tables, each with 8 guests, will work together to question our seven suspects. Each table will eventually submit their best "whodunit" guess for the entire group in attendance!

Seating is limited and Reservations are required by October 25.

$30 per person includes a full evening of entertainment and catered buffet.

Cash bar.
