GREAT FALLS, Montana – On Saturday, March 23, from 6:30 – 9 p.m. at the Eagles Lodge (1501 9th Street S) the public has a chance to take part in “Murder at the Juice Joint,” an evening of murder, mayhem and the mob hosted by the Shelter Sidekicks. This roaring 20’s Murder Mystery Party will help raise funds for a cattery at the Great Falls Animal Shelter. The evening includes a silent auction (view silent auction items and sponsor list here), hors d’oeuvres and beverages. A no host bar will also be available.

Murder mystery parties are interactive events, where everyone attending gets to take part in the action.  Guests have the opportunity to be assigned character roles for the evening. If assigned a character, guests get to act out the crime while the other party guests serve as witnesses and help solve the fictitious murder that occurs while at the party.  View the full character list here.

Prior to the party, each participant assigned a character for the evening will receive an invitation, a detailed character description, costume recommendations, acting tips and background information on the “Murder at the Juice Joint” storyline.  Guests will arrive in character and are given a set of objectives, a nametag and play money. Guests not assigned a character role are asked to participate during the party to help solve the crime and should dress in 20’s style clothing.

The cost to attend the Murder Mystery Party is $20 per party guest and for those interested in being a star for the night (no acting experience necessary) the cost is $25 per character and $45 per character couple. While there are only 20 characters available, everyone attending gets to help solve the “who dun it.” To purchase a ticket or reserve your character call 564-3685.

Characters and guest spots will go fast, so don’t delay, reserve your spot today! For tickets and more information regarding the Murder Mystery Party contact Laura McElhinney, volunteer coordinator at 564-3685.
