GREAT FALLS, Montana – Time is running out to attend the 2nd Annual Great Falls Animal Shelter Murder Mystery Party! “Murder Among the Mateys,” will be held on Saturday, March 1, from 6 to 9 p.m. at the Eagles Lodge (1501 9th Street S). The cost to attend is $25 for those playing a character, $45 per character couple and $20 for those attending, but not assigned a character. The evening includes a silent auction, hors d’oeuvres and beverages. A no host bar will also be available.

Murder mystery parties are interactive events, where everyone attending takes part in the fun. Traditionally, one of the participants is secretly, and unknowingly, playing a murderer, while the other party guests must determine who among them is the criminal.

This year’s murder mystery, “Murder Among the Mateys,” involves a pirate voyage complete with pillaging and plundering and a night of turmoil and murder at the Salty Sea Dog.  There are twenty colorful character roles available. Characters go fast, so reserve yours today!

Prior to the party, those playing a character role are provided a detailed character description, costume recommendations and information on the storyline.  Participants are asked to arrive in character and are given a set of objectives, a nametag and play money.  Guests not assigned a character for the evening are asked to help solve the crime and are encouraged to dress in pirate/period style clothing.                                        

This year’s Murder Mystery Party will raise funds for the Shelter’s Help Us Grow (HUG) Project, which will help fund future expansion and improvements at the Shelter.

The evening will be a night of intrigue and pirating good fun. For tickets and more information regarding, “Murder Among the Mateys” contact Laura McElhinney, volunteer coordinator at 452-1068.
