Murder Among the Mateys

Pirate Skull on a Beach

The Great Falls Animal Shelter staff would like to thank everyone who participated in the Murder Among the Mateys (Murder Mystery Party).  Everyone had a great time.  Another thank you goes out to the sponsors and all the volunteers that made this event possible.  Keep on eye on this page and our Facebook page for fun photos of the night and a tally of the proceeds raised.




On Saturday, March 1, from 6:00 - 9 p.m. at the Eagles Lodge (1501 9th Street S) the public has a chance to take part in "Murder Among the Mateys", a night of seamen, secrets and scallywags await you at The Salty Sea Dog hosted by the Shelter Sidekicks.  This pirate themed Murder Mystery Party will help raise funds for the HUG Project (Help Us Grow - Building Expansion) at the Great Falls Animal Shelter.  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 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 Among the Mateys" 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 pirate theme 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.  Everyone attending gets to help solve the "who dun it."  To purchase a ticket or reserve your character call Laura at 454-2276 or 564-3685.
