Murder most fun

JCI Penticton are turning the Shatford Centre into a Tinseltown party filled with twists and terror for Lights! Camera! Murder!

A murder is being planned in Penticton and despite knowing the time and place, the police aren’t doing anything to stop it.

Next weekend, JCI Penticton is hosting its third annual Night of Mystery, and are turning the Shatford Centre into a Tinseltown party filled with twists and terror for Lights! Camera! Murder!

After a night of accolades at the Academy Awards show, you will attend the A-list after-party hosted by millionaire Vanity Affair. While socializing and schmoozing with Hollywood’s elite, careers will be made, secrets will be revealed, scandals will be broken and a homicide will happen.

With a VIP victim and the celebrities all suspect, you will be called upon to find the criminal by cracking this red carpet caper. Will it be an aspiring actress, tired of living in the shadows? A livid lover who has been pushed too far? Or possibly the teen starlet trying to attract a more mature audience?

As the night unfolds, so will a web of lies and scandals intricately woven to point you to the killer. It is up to you to uncover the clues or the culprit will remain concealed.

This fun interactive experience supports JCI Penticton, with partial proceeds going to the Shatford’s community kitchen project.

Tickets include dinner by Okanagan Vintage Catering and snacks will also be provided throughout the night. Music and a dance floor, silent auctions, a photo booth by Something Blue Photography, and a role in the Murder Mystery is sure to keep you entertained all night, along with prizes to be won.

While purchasing your ticket, you will have to choose if you want a main character, supporting character, character or no character. There are limited numbers of each type, so availability will be on a first come, first served basis.

The 20 main character roles require speaking and acting. After the main characters are gone, there are 60 supporting characters with objectives and speaking/acting, but are only minor and do not affect outcome of the game. The character option will give you a role, a personality, a name and costume ideas, however you will not have any objectives to follow. The no character is there for those who do not want to follow a specific guide or are perhaps too shy or not wanting to put together a costume.

Tickets are $60 per person or $55 per person if you purchase in groups of four or more and can be purchased through Visit JCIPenticton on Facebook for more information.
