Wizarding Weekend Murder Mystery Dinner

January 27 @ 5:30 pm - 8:00 pm

Our friends from Murder & Merriment, West Virginia’s foremost murder mystery acting company, will be here to present their show, “Henry Potter and the Vanishing.”
Potter is now an Auror at Hogwarts and a Defense Against Dark Arts teacher. But as the new semester begins, a few other instructors begin vanishing, and it’s up to Potter to solve the mystery and potential murder! In this interactive murder mystery dinner theatre event, guests will get to “play detective” by examining suspects and collecting clues to solve a mystery and win the prize!
Doors will open at 5:30pm for a cocktail hour before the show, with specialty cocktails, mocktails, and a full bar available for purchase. Appetizers will be served during cocktail hour, and vegetarian substitutions will be accommodated individually and should be noted at the time of reservation. The show will run for approximately 90 minutes.
Seating will be according to Hogwarts House. Guests should select their house preference (or no preference) at the time of the reservation, and we will notify them where they have been placed. Costumes are encouraged but not required. A prize will be awarded for the best costume.
